I can’t tell you how big a fan I am of The Carper Family – both the music and the three luminous women behind it! I’ve designed their previous two album packages and was thrilled when I got an email from Jenn Miori with some inspiration photos for the new album ‘Old-Fashioned Gal’ (which included a mint deco shell hand mirror and some signage at local eatery Hillside Farmacy). This is the trio’s most ambitious album to date – and they wanted some knockout packaging to do the music justice.
The final work has now become one of my favourite projects! It features four panels of mint, cream and gilded vintage luxury. The band’s name on the cover is constructed from actual faded hand-painted signs from old buildings. We featured a picture of Melissa “Daddy” Carper’s parents on the interior (check out that sweet van!), and had a lively little photo shoot at Hillside Farmacy to round out the back of the album.
If you’re a fan of folk music, I highly suggest you check these gals out! Thanks for being such wonderful clients and friends, Carper Fam! x
