Design for Beta Librae Cassette Tape titled Swope Park published by 1080p Collection
Cassette tape cover designs:
In collaboration with 1080p Collection and illustrator, Rechelle Payne, Swope Park was derived from images taken with a heat signature camera then composed with generic styled typography to resemble pharmaceutical packaging. Psychedelic colors in conjunction with Rechelle Payne's split-face rendering on the cover illustrate the infectious rhythm of Beta Libra’s hypnotic tracks.

The Thoughtful American
Zine design in collaboration with indie-publisher Swill Children Three color Risograph on mixed stock
In collaboration with Swill Children, The Thoughtful American is a saterical zine; a critique on studio art and fine artists in design. The text and supporting images mock Julian's own studio art — paintings, installation works, and photographs — with a tongue-in-cheek artist feature and photoshopped studio images. Like dummies guide to dumb art, the zine includes insght into Julian's work while simultaneously mocking him, his art, and his graphic designs.
