BEYOND THE TRADITIONAL CREATIVE WORK

One of the most important aspects of success comes from strong creative assets. Our creative team works to go beyond the traditional in ensuring that each creative output matches the goals and needs of everyone we work with. We understand that the visual elements of a project function to tell stories and convey messages just as much as their audio and textual counterparts. We are here to help curate all your creative needs whether it be brandinggraphicsphotography, or video! Discover our previous creative work below.

BRANDING

An artists branding is a crucial part to a cohesive visual representation of their sonic work. It can be difficult to capture the true essence of an artist and boil it down to one logo, icon, or color pallet - but, here at Brain Candy it's one of our favorite types of projects! Having cohesive stylized branding allows fans to easily identify an artist, creates easy for an artist throughout social media, merchandise and visual artwork decisions, and build a strong foundation for an artist to grow from. At Brain Candy we take the time to truly get to know the artist, their goals, and style before even starting the initial design process so that we create branding true to the artist.

Album covers, show posters, merchandise and more are all places where an artist can further express their creativity and translate their auditory artist to visual ones. While it may not always be easy to craft exactly whats in an artists head, its our teams favorite challenge and we love diving into the meaning behind projects to bring the details to life!
