I have attempted to pastiche notable designer Storm Thorgerson who is well-known for creating various
album covers for bands such as Pink Floyd, Muse, and The Cranberries. Despite passing away in 2013, Thorgerson’s design company, StormStudios, has helmed projects with a legacy to his thought-provoking graphical styles. Thorgerson’s work is identifiable by the juxtaposition of photographic backdrops with uncanny elements, be it a horde of floating spheres, teddy bears, or geometric figures.
With regards to his unconventional approach, he says:
"I like photography because it is a reality medium, unlike drawing, which is unreal. I like to mess with reality, to
bend reality. Some of my works beg the question of is it real or not? Why is there a cow on the cover?
It doesn't have anything to do with the album, or does it? "
