Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix is the fourth album by the established, French indie band Phoenix. Phoenix is known for their melodic pop songs that are unique, polished and project an unforced feel. The album holds songs that are glittering and playful, with layered synths, textural qualities, and abstract lyrics that are obscure in meaning.
The project goal was to create an album cover design that translated these qualities into imagery and also reflected the band’s appreciation for precision and minimalist aesthetic. The resulting typographical design is conceptual and musically influenced.
