MELROSE (cover art)

I Just sent out the final web promo for this project to Murs and Terrace so Imma try to sneak it on my blog and get some exclusivity points, lol
You guys gotta hear this album, It's about time for a lesser serious feel good journey into the minds of the Terrace/MURS duo! Man, Its hard to not laugh being around these guys, this is loopy on a whole other level, I def tried to translate this feeling back into the "MELROSE" branding, first direction was pretty much Bill and Teds excellent adventure meets corky "hood" movie.
There are some hard tracks as well on this, Two of my favs are "Handz in the sky" and "fresh kicks" Overall great album and I am Very humbled to be a part of the visual experience.

America Is F*cked.......(Graphically at least)

America Is F*cked.......(Graphically at least) from Jess Gibson on Vimeo.

This is a fresh little vid with Aaron James Draplin speaking on the direction of design. I have followed Aaron's work for a bit. did you know he is responsible for the PR branding on Paul Rodriguez signature line as well as hundreds of other accounts. this dudes gets the work I one day strive to acquire.

MURS VARSITY BLUES 2 (produced by Aesop Rock)


Murs – Varsity Blues 2 (Produced by Aesop Rock) by Hypetrak
Produced by pretty much my favorite mc Aesop Rock, here is a first look at Murs’ upcoming project Varsity Blues 2.
This album is going to be good. MURS really keeps the branding correct throughout the whole project, Did I mention he trusted me with handling all Varsity Blues 2 Artwork/Merch, so he explained to me right off the bat the vibe was going to be heavy. Currently the Art work is 90% there, just waiting for all of the final credits and thank you's.

Melrose artwork (first look)


At Large Media is extremely pleased to be handling the art direction for MURS & Terrace Martins next album entitled “MELROSE”
The whole concept of this album was constructed around having fun. So it is going to be great to see how the hip hop community entirpits it.
When we had our fist design “kick off” meetings back in 2009, Murs painted a picture in my head of a Bill and Teds Excellent adventure meets the happy hood! So that was the basis of all design. Stay tuned for a full preview of all the elements ALM provided for this album.
