Mantras – We Are The Children (EP)

EP cover and promotional campaign for Brighton band ‘Mantras’. A collage style was developed and applied to single covers & posters with the campaign culminating in an animated music video.

The band have since signed a 3 album deal with an independent label and management company following the campaign.

The collage style was adapted from the EP cover and elements were recycled and remixed to create single covers and flyers. The bands identifiable logo, the ‘Mantras Triangle’, was often used as a centre point for the artwork, as if it was a portal to another dimension.

The singer Jack gave me a list of elements to include and I loosely mapped them out in this sketch before sourcing the images and beginning the collage.

Animated Music Video

Live action footage was shot and edited in with collage material and comped together in After Effects.
