Wess Meets West




Wess Meets West is an instrumental post-rock band from the Northeast U.S.
As the Art Director, I’ve designed their visual identity, packaging,
merchandise and poster design. I also play guitar in the band, and
am honored to have the duties of art direction.

Below are design concepts for the last two album releases, as well as some
concert posters and flyers that I’ve designed within the past couple years.




“A Light Within the Fracture”


This album was released in April 2018. During the previous Summer,
I had taken  camping trip to upstate Vermont, at Kettle Pond in Groton State Forest.
The imagery that comprises the album artwork is an amalgamation of
photographs of the woods and the pond at the campgrounds.

My thought process was that I wanted to create something that keeps
the listener, and viewer, involved. Almost like an illusory “Magic Eye” graphic,
I wanted the participant to keep finding nuances in the imagery while also keep
discovering nuances within the music. 

Prior to the album release, we released three digital singles. I created three digital
covers for each single, and they stem from the overall theme of the full-length
album artwork.
