2017 / 2018
(ABOVE LEFT) With almost 270,000 monthly listeners on Spotify, Jeff Bernat has broken through as a Filipino-American singer, songwriter, and producer on the rise. In designing the cover of afterwords, his fourth studio release, I chose a serif font for the title and stylized it to emulate a neon sign. Laid over a Mark Peaced studio shot, the effect was a modern-classic feel. I also created supporting motion graphics for social media, as seen below.
(ABOVE RIGHT) After a heartbreak, Jeff released his non-album single Changes. In this melancholy tune, the chorus mentions how he keeps her picture on the nightstand. To reflect this, we chose a shattered picture frame, incorporating the word “changes” through jagged breaks in the glass. The two flowers act as a primary visual for the transformation of a broken heart.
