CD Packaging: Forrest Day

(8 years ago)
"Lead singer, beat-maker, producer and sax-player Forrest came up with the design and enlisted world-renown model builder Lisa Gemmiti to help execute the album art. Gemmiti and Day developed the concept for the art with painstakingly accurate detail. The cover features a jumper on the ledge of a building while reams of onlookers gawk. "I was trying to capture the notion that America has a very voyeuristic attitude about tragedy. The figure on the building isn't actually a jumper, he's just trying to stay above the fray and set himself apart. It's darkly humorous and represents the tragicomic vibe of my album," explains Day."
