Tonic has designed the CD cover for start-up label Ether Records’ first release, Gilles Peterson in Brazil. The two-disc compilation features a mix of 1960s and 1970s Brazilian music and more cutting-edge selections, and launches on 24 May. ‘We wanted to avoid stereotypical Brazilian imagery and create something completely different, modern and clean,’ says Tonic creative director Ranzie Anthony. The cover’s avant-garde typography and layout are ‘quite refined’, while the colour scheme ‘harks back to Brazil’, he explains. Tonic won the work, which also included designing the CD’s insert leaflet, after a two-way credentials pitch in February. Consultancy designer Andy West was creative lead on the project.
