JON McLAUGHLIN, ANGST & GRACE (2018)
CREATIVE DIRECTION, PHOTOGRAPHY, DESIGN.
Absorb. has enjoyed a long and fruitful creative relationship with our friend and incredible singer / songwriter Jon McLaughlin. Jon asked us to help with visuals for his fantastic new album (and first in three years), Angst & Grace, which released on November 9 2018.
For the visuals, we wanted to contrast the elements in the album's title, using dark and bright colors in photos to juxtapose the power of these sentiments in the artist, and in all humans. The brighter, orange colors represent the warmth of GRACE, and the darker, blue tones represent ANGST. Customized, handwritten titles were created to bring an organic edge to the modern photo visuals.
Angst & Grace is available everywhere now.
