New EP cover design for Tameside duo, Dead Captain

I love working with musicians and bands on various projects. My latest job has been sorting out an EP cover for Tameside duo, Dead Captain.

I wanted to create something bold and distinctive but keep things simple with the design. One day, whilst a bit bored I started trying to create an alphabet with my fingers (don't ask). The D and C were simple enough and the idea for this cover just popped into my head. The blackmail style lettering is something I always enjoyed doing back in the 90's when I used to send funny letters and cards to friends and family (pre-email and the dawn of lazy communications) - and it seemed to fit with the EP's overall themes of social unrest, growing crime and political confusion. A take on the political blackmailing of everyday people I guess.
