TAARKA: Adventures in Vagabondia CD Cover & Website

Overview

TAARKA is a virtuosic ensemble of violin, mandolin, guitars, string bass, and vocals featuring high-energy performance & innovative, beautiful compositions and songs. They weave the sounds of old & new from world folk, celtic, bluegrass, jazz and classical with rock energy & master musicianship.

TAARKA commissioned artist Erica Harris to create an original painting for their new cover. Having a beautiful, whimsical piece of art as a base, I incorporated graphic elements and typography reminiscent of old circus and carnival posters to match the nature of the piece. Once the cover design was established, their website was updated to reflect the design and to promote their new CD.
