Urso Bardo are an instrumental rock band from Lisbon, Portugal. They were starting fresh, so there was really no previous visuals to draw inspiration from. This proved to be very refreshing from a design stand point.
The dark aesthetic was part of the client brief. The moody atmosphere of the different visuals we produced try to mirror the dense instrumental landscapes of the record.
We designed the album cover and overall packaging (including custom illustration work and photography), several posters, T-Shirts, banners for social media channels and the official website.
This project was particularly close to home, as one of our team members plays in the band. Having a deep understanding of the music and where it comes from was extremely important to the success of the design.
