The story behind the design!

Whilst listening to the livestream of ABGT100 in Adelaide, Australia I was transported on a musical journey with the rest of global Anjuna Family. I remember seeing the rippling red heart that accompanied ‘A Thing Called Love’ and that white dove that so often accompanied ‘Alchemy’ during live performances. This inspired the idea to design a symbol for each of the songs and it was in that moment that I decided to represent my favourite Above & Beyond’s tracks in a visual format.

For as long as I can recall I have admired the simplicity of the ‘Tri-State’ album art, the surreal vision of ‘Sirens of the Sea’ however it was always the ribbons on the iconic ‘Group Therapy’ cover that I admired. I interpreted the tied ribbons as representative of a circle of people placing their hands together as it perfectly suited the title and the concept of the album. The single covers for ‘Sun & Moon’, ‘Every Little Beat’ and ‘You’ve Got To Go’ generated further inspiration as they continued to use ribbons to signify the meaning of the songs.

I set myself parameters. I would use limited colours, designs would be inspired by silhouettes and minimalism, they would need to be readily understood but also complex enough to challenge even the most diehard of fans. Intentionally including different sides of the globe to be inclusive of the entire A&B fan base as well as including the release date of January 16th on the design of ‘Counting Down The Days’ were simple design choices I made to align with the release date of ‘We Are All We Need’. Needless to say when I saw the album and singles I was blown away to see that we were on similar creative wavelengths as the cover art was clearly a spiritual successor to ‘Group Therapy’.

As a life-long fan that has spent the last 10 years blending a love of music with a love of art, to have been acknowledged by Tony, Jono and Paavo was truly breathtaking and as touching a moment as any I’ve experienced live in concert. It truly shows their dedication to their fans and the humbleness of their nature. I am forever grateful and look forward to many more small moments like these with Above & Beyond.
