Album cover design

If you’re reading this English version of my website, the chances are you’re here because you saw its address on a vinyl record or a book, or followed a link from another website.

Over the years, I’ve been lucky enough to design and help with the print production of an enormous amount of vinyl records and CDs. In fact, I still do.

However, I’m not currently actively looking for album cover design projects. Not because I don’t enjoy them – on the contrary. It’s more that there’s no public market for this. Bands and musicians often create their own album cover designs, or have their partner or friends do so.

There’s also generally not much money in it.

I’ve included this page in the English version of my website more as a courtesy to those of you who came here looking for it.

But never say never. If, despite all that, you have an amazing album cover design or layout project you think I’d be just the right person for, you’re welcome to contact me with serious enquiries.

On the basis of what I’ve written above, it makes no sense to show work I created 10, 15 or 20 or more years ago. Even though that’s precisely what I’ve done, faded out in the background to this section.

Here are a few more recent projects.
