FUTURALBUM is a collaborative album art design project created by Troy DeShano. Troy invited me to contribute re-imagined cover art for any album of my choosing, with simple but strict restraints for the design: Use only images from Flickr Internet Archive Book Images, and use Futura only for all type.

For my contribution, I decided to re-design Things We Lost in the Fire by Low. I’ve been seeing Low concerts for over a decade, and being one of their classic records, “Fire” was an obvious choice for me. Pulling inspiration from the opening song Sunflower, I also used a similar color palette that’s on the real cover of the album. My piece was posted today, see it here.
