The System

Graphic Design / Identity Design

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with one of my all-time favourite synth duos from the 1980's, The System, on visual accompaniment for System Overload, their first EP release in over a decade, and a return to form almost 25 years in the making.

Along with a brand new logo, I put together a piece of key album art with only a handful of limited photo assets to work from. My goal was for the image to not only evoke their deep, computerized 'emotio-electro' sound but also hearken back to designs produced using the physical & chemical photo manipulation techniques that would've been available during the band’s heyday. Though they ultimately chose to go in a different direction with the final cover, I'm still quite proud of what I was able to do with this composition and the way it compliments their sound.
