The Royal Concept

BigActiveTheRoyalConcept

The Royal Concept play energetic and very danceable guitar driven indie-pop. And they do it very well indeed. Markus Karlsson at our new Big Active Design studio in Gothenburg has been working with the band on the artwork for their debut album ‘Goldrushed’ which is out now on Sony Sweden. “We wanted the visuals to have an androgynous and energetic ‘retro-neon’ feel to capture the spirit and energy of the album”. You can see more of the project here.

Tales Of Us

Goldfrapp-Blog

Big Active’s Mat Maitland has once again been working closely with Alison Goldfrapp on the creative direction for the new album ‘Tales Of Us’. Shot entirely in black and white, the pair collaborated with Dutch photographer Annemarieke Van Drimmelen to create a set of images for use across the campaign. The photographs were inspired by a wide range of cinematic references from the past, all alluding to a hidden narrative.
