album art for up-and-coming EDM artist JEK
We connected through a mutual friend and worked on the art for JEK's 1st EP. Going into the process, the elements for inspiration would be Asia, bamboo, cherry blossoms, spring colors, and other floral elements. The music celebrates and pulls from Asian history and culture.
With all this background information in mind, I went through many iterations of drafts that ranged from abstract houses in jungles to crystal-like portals to the final product, birds on a cherry blossom branch.
This was my first freelance opportunity and it was a great learning experience for me to handle not only the creative side, but also work alongside clients on the business end.
