Kind Ghosts

June 26th 2011, renaissance man, immense talent, and super nice guy Derek Nicoletto will be unleashing his solo debut album "Kind Ghosts" to the world!

It is always a treat working with Derek and i was proud and excited he asked me to do the layout for his CD. Walt Cessna took amazing photos (of Scooter LaForge's painted Derek!) and I reveled at the chance to do something clean, crisp, and minimal that still paid tribute to Derek's music, energy, and vision. I also enjoyed subtly playing up the electrical light element on the type as well as faint ghostly glows

a fraction of the explorations:

the 6 panel layout (click for larger view!)
while we wanted to keep things white with gray, i gave everything a faint "ghostly" pink to maintain the mood and aesthetic

the CD itself

and keep your eyes peeled around town for this Kind Ghost sticker, with a mysterious QR barcode that will take you right to a music video!
hear some music (and get ready to dance), and keep up with Derek's busy schedule at:
