The HUMAN Resource was a release compiled by DJ Dieselboy as a label-showcase to-date of music. The compilation was put out in a variety of media: 2xCD, Vinyl and digital bundles. As lead creative for the label, I worked closely with the artist to realize his vision for this intimate project.
Starting with an idea based on Frankenstein, a human made of many parts, I began to collect imagery that fit in with 1800s look and feel. Adding to the layered artwork, I wanted to include special printing techniques to the CD release: spot varnish on the booklet within the visceral, red inside spread as well as a coating on each physical disc.
The finished product was something Dieselboy loved and championed, while fans felt the artwork extended the music — there was great feedback all around.
