The first proposal relies primarily on the interaction between two patterns, one wavy and one angular.
The wavy background generates an illusion of depth, a background against which the reflected architectural structure reads as a 3 dimensional object. Visually, this object traces two strong organizing horizontal and vertical axes which hold at their intersection the Deep Space Helsinki logo.
Cover Art For Music, Take Two
For the second option, I incorporated a snapshot from an analog piece depicting deep space exploration, and going with a deep tone color scheme, versions of which will carry through to the final design.
Graphic Design Option Three
The third variant sees a return of the reflected architectural mid-ground, this time in warm orange and purple hues, while the background steals a page from Super-studio's conceptual work "Continuous Monument," circa 1969.
Final Draft, Graphic Design Proposal
Warm tones, wavy pattern gradient, depth. Final proposal.
