Apollo Vinyl Record Design
2020





This album design is a hybrid of ambient music and Brutalism architectural style.

Ambient music and Brutalism architecture style conflict with each other. Ambient music atmospherically blends into its surrounding while Brutalism architecture distinct itself with bulky shapes and defined edges. Yet ambient music and Brutalism architecture both utilize the importance of rhythm and repetition form as a design language for expression.

This album fuses two different styles and tries to send out the feeling of the universe‘s infinite nothingness while astronauts floating in space. Since the astronauts could only bring one cassette to space, I designed both cassette and vinyl versions of this album.
