BRIGGS: SHEPLIFE

Client: Golden Era Records
Art Direction & Design: April77 Creative

We worked with Briggs on his debut LP ‘The Blacklist’ and his follow up ‘Sheplife’ in 2014. For both albums we handled the layout and design of the album packaging and associated tour campaign. The concept for the ‘Sheplife’ artwork was to represent Briggs’ home town of Shepparton with a series of environment and portrait photos. We also created some sticker pages including Briggs/Sheplife logos and tags for fans to stick over the various wall textures throughout the lyrics booklet.
