Label Treatment: “Eschatone Records”


An interesting job I did recently was for a new client in Brooklyn. I designed a record label for the independent record company “Eschatone Records” who've started producing old-style vinyl records. This was the type of project that I never thought I’d get to see—but the surprising new found popularity of vinyl has given this genre a new lease on life. One of the owners of the company, Jed Davis, is a big fan of record labels from vinyl’s heyday, so I had a lot of fun giving this job some of the style I remembered from the 45 RPM labels I collected as a kid. A local art space Zakka Corp. in Brooklyn is hosting an exhibition of Eschatone's album art beginning May 23, 2008.
