Star Wars Headspace

Holy shit, we got to work on Star Wars! Dream job! We were commissioned by Disney/Hollywood Records to create the artwork for the Star Wars inspired album produced by the legendary Rick Rubin. The album consists of tracks by some of our favourite producers, Flying Lotus, Bonobo, Royksopp, Shlomo, Rustie and more! It’s a great album and well worth a listen!

This was always going to be a big project for me, as someone who is very reluctant to share everything I make, producing 36 artworks to a standard I'm comfortable with proved to be a challenge. Even though there are some I'm not happy with, overall I am super proud to have finished the series. I wanted to make this a learning project for myself too, to try out different techniques and not do the same thing every day. With the majority of work being made in Cinema 4D and rendered on Octane, I learnt so much more about those tools than I did before. I received such an overwhelming response from friends, family, other designers that I look up to and the whole 36 Days community. This is definitely a project I'd love to do every year.
