We love doing artwork for music, so it was very exciting to design both the cd cover design and the album launch poster for Tara Simmons’ ‘Spilt Milk’. The title came from the fact that a lot of the songs on the album have an unintentionally depressing theme. Tara wouldn’t say the songs ARE actually depressing, it’s more like the songs are cleaning up the mess on Tara’s behalf.

With that in mind the poster shows exactly that; we dumped a bucket of milk all over Tara, and captured the moment it hit her. Whilst this could be an ugly and messy affair, the art-direction does the opposite and shows a polished and intriguing image, and even an element of fun.

For the actual cd cover artwork we had fun with paint, ink and… yep, milk.
