Box set packaging for 'Alignment', released as a limited three-copy art project by New Zealand sound artist, David Higson.
Rich in symbolism, the project called for finding links between the track titles and the numerological and astrological meanings around them.
Record one was based around the Sun and solar energy, record two was based on Saturn (the body), and record three on the Earth & Moon. The three were designed to form a syzygy, or planetary alignment.
Each outer sleeve was realised through embossing exclusively; no ink.
Produced in collaboration with Luke Brown.









Worked as part of the creative team at DUST, in collaboration with Luke Brown, from conception to realisation as a physical space, located at 114 Russell St, Melbourne.
Dust is a multi-sensory label with five divisions corresponding to each of the five senses.
Produced all in-store collateral including roughly 50 prints for apparel, packaging for our fragrance, candle, and a 12" release by Robin Fox.

Concept and packaging for the 12" 'atmp(r)l; cycle 1' by Robin Fox.
Produced with its own partner fragrance of the same name, and cut by legendary engineer Noel Summerville (Aphex Twin, The Clash). The track being based on the element of air, the entire package was vacuum sealed.
The A-side is a visualisation of the spectrogram of the audio, showing only the peak bins in a logarithmic frequency scale.
The B-side is all data relating to the physical object: lat/long where the record was pressed, length of groove in meters, chemical composition of the vinyl and of the air on the day it was completed, etc.
Produced at Dust.

Designed as a 30ml or 5ml unisex fragrance partner to the vinyl release of the same name, by Robin Fox. The vinyl being based on the element of air, the entire package was vacuum sealed.
Formulated by Briony Wright, and produced at Dust.

Invitations for the DUST launch party, with a live performance by artist Robin Fox.
Once the capsule, which was weighted down with a ball bearing inside, was dissolved in warm water a small, clear plastic invite would float to the top with all the event and contact details.

Concept and packaging for a candle infused with the 'atmp(r)l; cycle 1' fragrance, with soy wax and a wooden wick.

Art direction and design for Higher Arc Magazine #4, in collaboration with Luke Brown, and edited by Mieke Chew and Will Heyward.
Higher Arc illuminates local talent through a wider contextual framework of international discourse, rethinking creative sectors and creating a space where the dialogue between art, literature, design, music and film can be explored.



12" sleeve for tribal-techno producer Linear B, released on Unity Records.

Linear B takes his name from the syllabic script that was used for writing Cycladic Greek, the earliest attested form of Greek from approximately 1450 BC. The idols and discs are all artefacts of that period.



Sleeves, label templates and branding for NYC experimental electronic record label, In Context Music (ICM).
Each release on ICM is pressed and cut by hand, in real-time, using a lathe cutter on translucent vinyl, and limited to 25 per run.
The record is then hand-signed by the artist, with releases from Shelly Burgon, Che Chen, and Brian Chase (Yeah Yeah Yeahs).
