We worked with Johan Qin, an emerging violinist from Northern California, on the album cover for his debut song D (Half Moon).

Half Moon Album Cover by Herm the Younger

Johan initially contacted us to license Instinct, feeling that the atmosphere of the artwork suited his song perfectly. In response, we developed two album covers – one featuring Instinct, and another featuring a new artwork created by Herm the Younger especially for the song.

The first design, based on the 2018 artwork Instinct
The second design, based on a new artwork made for the release.
Final album cover

The new artwork – titled Half Moon – was chosen, and custom typography was added to finish the album cover.
