Magnonic Signals – branding and artwork

October 2022

Branding and design of single colour centre labels for a record label putting out quality techno. I have done the artwork for five releases so far.

According to Wikipedia "magnonics is an emerging field of modern magnetism". The label owners already had a solid idea for the logo and my job was to create a simple and adaptable look with the objective of making Magnonic Signals artwork distinctive as a thumbnail online and from across a record shop. It felt like a natural choice to have the circular "MAG SIG" logo big on the front and use the flip to express the concepts behind each release. To tie into the magnetism theme the sides are labelled +/– instead of A/B.
