David Vest had seen my design for David Gogo’s album “Come On Down” and really like the retro look of my design. I was asked by Cordova Bay Records to create something similar for the soon to be released David Vest record. I decided I wanted to do a modern take on the classic Blue Note look.
For this design I would need photos done of David in a live setting. I had already decided to treat the images as duotones using a bright orange and black as the colours. I felt this would modernize the look. A photo shoot was arranged with photographer Jeffrey Bosdet. The final slide is the concept sketch for the cover.
