Grunge: Essential Bands & albums

 ART DIRECTION

Jenny Kowalski

This coffee-table book serves as a collection of albums from the grunge scene and their lyrics. The textures, typography, and overall style of the book reflect grunge’s rejection of previous music style norms in favor of grit and angst. Following the inspiration from the deconstructivist period of design made famous by the anti-designer David Carson, I purposely made the typography and imagery chaotic. Each spread takes inspiration from its respective album by using different fonts, colors, and other treatments to reflect the different moods and emotions of each album.
