Blair Crimmins & the Hookers
Blair Crimmins & the Hookers party like its 1929. Taking cues from Prohibition-era ragtime jazz, and possessing a healthy sense of debauchery, their live shows are a sight to behold. Blair and his "hookers" (a rotating cast of local musicians) are quickly becoming known for putting on some of the best stage performances in the Southeast.
On his recent album, "The Musical Stylings Of", we aimed to create a dark, yet classical mark for the band. Taking inspiration from art surrounding the king of ragtime, Scott Joplin, we crafted this twisted typographical logo treatment to play off the slightly-sinister undertones of his music. As for the album cover itself, we kept it simple and clandestine: just like having to knock three times on a back door for a sip of hooch.
A series of alternate graphics were designed for use on merchandise, press releases & various knick-knackery on the road.
