Going through old files, we came across these two album cover design drafts we did for my old band, Speedwell. A few years back, our old drummer, Jon, had a bunch of songs remastered and released as limited edition discography through Coolidge Records.
We’d designed these two cover options that, in the end, we didn’t end up using, which is totally understandable—I think they both convey much more our current-day design aesthetic than they do the sound of that band in the nineties and early aughts. The final design came from Jon’s now wife, Laura, and convey that time and sound much better. We like these nonetheless, removed from that sound, and thought we’d share.
