About This Project

In 2002, Hollywood Records hired us to create the design for Breaking Benjamin’s debut album. The band was really lacking a visual direction, so we really had to look to the title ‘Saturate’. Our friend, a cardiologist, happened to be in town at the time and he had with him a cd-r with images of infected blood cells. This coincidently became a great solution to the title and some of the lyrics to their songs. A couple of years later, we got to design their second album ‘We Are Not Alone,’ followed by ‘Phobia,’ ‘Dear Agony’ and finally ‘Dark Before Dawn’ in 2015, which ended up #1 on the Billboard Charts.

 

This series of five albums was a fantastic opportunity to create continuity in design that carries from album to album.
