We designed the visual identity and album artwork for Efterklang's 4th album Piramida released in 2012 on 4AD. For this release we created a visual narrative around the band’s musical exploration of the abandoned Russian coal mining settlement Piramida in Spitzbergen, which formed the basis of the album, and from which they collected sounds later used to compose the ten tracks on the album. Our artwork consists of a handful of illustrated planets and symbols as well as photographs taken by Efterklang on their expedition to Piramida. The symbols used in the artwork draw parallels to past explorers, using stars and landmarks to navigate the landscape.
The artwork for this album, alongside the stage design that we created for The Piramida Concert were a part of our thesis project at The Royal Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design.
