Moke

Client: Moke & PIAS (2007-2013)
A single bold diagonal stripe is a prominent element in all of Moke's early sleeve and publicity designs. The diagonal was inspired by a guitar strap.

For Mokes 2nd album ‘The Long and Dangerous Sea’, we were extremely honoured to collaborate with Anton Corbijn. Taking a cue from the prominent diagonal stripe of earlier Moke releases, Corbijn captured the band in an angled formation in his signature black and white style.

In today’s digital marketplace, where album art usually functions as a tiny thumbnail displayed on a smart-phone, the Moke diagonal creates a highly distinctive visual presence.
