…i thought I’d share with you the story behind the cover art for upcoming single ‘Where The Ships Go To Die’.
I found this wonderful photograph attributed with an online article (the economist) on ship dismantling in Bangladesh. The picture was everything I had been looking for in terms of the mood of the song. We tracked down and contacted Bangladeshi based photographer Saiful Huq Omi/Counter Foto to seek permission, which he duly granted. Saiful’s work has been displayed in the following publications (New York Time’s, Time Magazine, Newsweek, The Economist and the BBC to name but a few).
After we had the photograph we sent it over to New York based graphics designer Scott Braun (who we’d already hired to work on a new logo) and he did a fantastic job putting the artwork together . Scott also has long list of established clients on his resume / cv!
Massive thanks to both gentlemen for their talents and wonderful contribution to the project. The single is due out on the 28th August 2020, pre-save link: https://ingroov.es/where-the-ships-go-to
