Designed by Californian poster artist Jason Malmberg, who had previously worked with the Granada on a poster for this past spring's Cut Copy and Foals show, this effort is nothing short of eye-catching, with its bold warm-color palette and faded imagery.
Explains Malmberg of his design strategy this time around: "I went back and forth to the well on this one before eventually settling on something in the vein of slightly creepy pulp sci-fi. The only constant this entire process was the feathers as I try to include a wink to the band's imagery and that's very much a part of the aesthetic on this new record. The textures and weightless, gasping, floating feel of the piece are nods to a weird animated french movie I used to watch as a kid called Fantastic Planet that kept popping into my head as a good fit for the icy sounds of a lot of the stuff on Pala."
Job well done, we say. And right in line with the faded aspect of much of Malmberg's other work, which you can peep here.
