Vinyl record packaging for Cables & Arms, a San Francisco-based indie rock band. The 2-songs on the record both contain metaphorical references to the sea, so the concept was born around that. For the cover, a vintage life jacket was purchased online for a few dollars and then photographed. The printing was only done in 2 colors, black and PMS 172, so to get the overprinting the life jacket was hand-traped. The gate fold was custom designed and for a finishing touch, the ship on the vinyl record is either safe or sinking depending on how it’s placed into the sleeve.
