Max Richter

Creative direction for the ground breaking composer's latest release.

Following the celebrated, eight-hour magnum opus SLEEP – classical music’s most streamed album of all time – artist Max Richter has composed its sequel, SLEEP: Tranquility Base, taking its namesake from the 1969 moon landing. We were appointed to art direct the new release. We crafted a fluid lunar landscape for the EP to inhabit – one led by contrast, context and the subversive use of space.

Lunar World

Culminating in its launch campaign and design, as well as its single release and two remixes, the album’s dreamlike moonscapes artwork, created in collaboration with 3D artists Dada Projects, depicts a lunar world that blurs the edges between realism and imagination.

Through carefully crafted chromatic and textural experimentation, the resulting visual soundscape has an intangible, astronomical quality – capturing the album’s sense of exploration and discovery.

"Adorned in moonlight, the artwork for Max Richter’s highly anticipated classical album SLEEP: Tranquility Base is as serene, ethereal and beautifully haunting as the music itself."
