‘Best Album Design’ – 2014 Western Canadian Music Awards

Ghost Notes Album

Ghost Notes Album

We just found out that Ghost Notes won Best Album Design at the Western Canadian Music Awards!

The packaging features a cover with Matt caked in river flood mud, and an inside sleeve with the rest of the band also entombed in the mud. The tailend of our Bridesmaids video actually shows part of the process that went into making those photos.

Geoffrey Hanson has been our primary artist and designer from the start with the Brown Album, Call Me When You’re Single, the Hooscow 7″, our logo, numerous shirts and posters, and of course, Ghost Notes. We’re excited to see him get these accolades!

But we’re not surprised. One of the projects he worked on for the Alabama Shakes was up for a Grammy in 2012. The Calgary Herald did a profile on him recently (Robert Plant, Kings of Leon are just a couple of musicians Calgary designer has worked with).

Thanks and kudos Geoff!
