The Misty Mountain String Band are a popular bluegrass quartet based in Louisville, KY. After working with MMSB on their 2013 debut EP CD “Went to the Well”, they asked me to design their first full length CD layout. “Brownsboro” is a deluxe package, since it includes an extra six panel insert that slides into the digipack. The band’s debut long player once again featured illustrations by the amazing and talented artist Abby Diamond. Also, Louisville’s Cherise Mingus again capably handled the band’s posed photography shoot.
Laying out Abby’s gorgeous illustrations for the second time was an absolute treat. The song’s lyrics are listed on one side of the insert and come alive in the night sky on the other side. The rest of the layout’s color scheme compliments Abby’s art in the insert. I also extracted many of the “constellation” images and reusing them for the additional content. I crushed MMSB’s deadline to get the art to press, since their timeline was tight. Their sophomore album was ready for their summer tour of bluegrass festivals, as well as college radio stations and album review blogs.
