Mass Gothic—I’ve Tortured You Long Enough

Client: Sub Pop
Year: 2018
Role: Creative Director, Designer

Vinyl, CD, and Cassette editions of Mass Gothic’s sophomore LP ‘I’ve Tortured You Long Enough’ released in 2018 by Sub Pop.

Having landed on the aforementioned title, the band sought to use it in a ‘declarative’ form for the album’s cover. Inspired by French New Wave cinema posters and their disaffected sensuality, the front and back covers use lines atop typography to illustrate a taut and slack relationship dynamic.

The album’s sleeve and interior lyric poster are printed with fluorescent and metallic inks creating a distinct vibration to the eye that I’m clearly unable to replicate within these photos—so take my word for it.
