I was really excited when earlier this year I was contacted by Evolution Series who wanted me to work on their next GUI design (Graphical user interface design). Evolution Series is all about creating beautifully engineered and completely unique virtual instruments for the most discerning film, tv, game composers and producers. Their first release called World Percussion 2.0 has been critically acclaimed worldwide and has been used by many famous music composers like John Debney (Iron Man 2, Predators, Sin City), Lisa Gerrard (from Dead Can Dance, who worked on Gladiator Soundtrack) and John Powell (Rio, Bourne Trilogy…).
This will be their second release (coming soon) and it’s called World Strings Guzheng. You can see the first piece of artwork I designed for them which I then used to create the virtual instrument interface which I will be showing you later (once it’s been released). Evolution Series partnered with world-renowned Guzheng maker Hong Sound (Emilymax), specialising in unique hand-crafted instruments. These instruments are a true gem and used by some of China and Taiwan’s elite musicians. Listen to this beautiful instrument in this first trailer here >> CLICK

Slave Machine are a french metal industrial band who got in touch with me around april this year. I remember being on the train coming back to Edinburgh from Liverpool and checking my emails and received a long message explaining the concept and ideas they had in mind for the artwork and their wish to work with DOSEprod. They had attached a few demo MP3s which I listened to and immediately liked (being a fan of industrial metal a la Fear Factory, Godflesh & Ministry did help a bit). Check out the artwork.

I have recently worked with the rock band Coralspin. Here is the new logo. They have posted a blog about the process on their website so here is a very nice write up by the band’s mastermind Blake McQueen : “It wasn’t easy deciding who to go with as there are a lot of great graphic designers out there with impressive artwork, but Sam’s work just had something about it that seemed right for us. Even though he mostly does artwork for angry and gloomy bands I thought he would have a good feel for something that was a bit more classic rock, and thankfully I was right. It gets the balance between old and modern right, it doesn’t look dated now and it won’t look dated in 10 years (I think — and please forgive me for gushing about our own logo, but it is a great experience to work with a talented collaborator who produces the right stuff for you — and I think Sam will eventually be recognized as one of the great rock graphic designers).” You can read the full article here >> CLICK
Thank you Coralspin. It was a pleasure working with you. Visit their Facebook page here >> CLICK

At the beginning of the summer I was contacted by Chris Cassady who asked me if I could help him out create a picture he had in his head for many years. He wanted me to bring his vision to life. Chris sent me a long brief with many details and images for references to help me see what he had in mind. I would then go and brainstorm and think about it all and start working on it. I used all the elements and concepts he sent to me but I was also free to also add in ideas or take out some parts which could not work. I finished the artwork last week and sent it over to Chris for him to review. He replied almost immediately with a lovely long email which started with “I am really almost at a loss for words, got chills just looking at it, this came out far better than I ever could’ve pictured in my own head!” … I was also very happy as I did work a lot on this piece. I hope you also like it. Thank you Chris. This was a great project and a great collaboration!
