Fountainhead

 

 

Fountainhead was created in response to a prompt which limited the text used to a set of five pages of random information curated by our professor Tom Davie. With this packet of information we were asked to choose a design style and create a design and implement it within the style chosen with only text from the five pages. 

 

I chose to use styles from prominent metal bands composed of intricate illustrations and chaotic type treatments on liquor bottles. Within this I added a layer of concept based on historical mythology with Courage of Man based on Hercules and the Nemean lion, and Lost City based on the tales of Atlantis, the Lost City.

 

Courage of Man

 

 This packaging design was based on midwestern deathcore band designs such as Job For a Cowboy, Whitechapel, and Suicide Silence. The content of the art is based loosely on the tale of Hercules and the Nemean Lion.  

Lost City

 

 This packaging design was based on Progressive metal band designs such as Protest the Hero, Born of Osiris, Periphery, and The Contortionist. The content of the art is based loosely on the tale of Atlantis the Lost City.
