Cleopatra Records is a Los Angeles-based independent record label founded in 1992 by entrepreneur and music fan Brian Perera. He started selling distressed rock posters, t-shirts and vinyl records back in the 80’s, and gradually built his label throughout time.
This was my first job out of college.
The goal when working on these covers was to get 8 of these out a day. This included photo retouching, color correcting, doing research on the artist and the audience it was going out to, as well as working with titles and fonts.
Digipaks, CD’s and Vinyl Records
Working on albums that where going to get printed was probably the highlight of the job. Our library of music was extensive, and because these took longer to design, you really got in depth with the artists, their history, and other musicians of their time.
I am very grateful to have had this experience and probably one of my favorite jobs as of yet.
Cleopatra Records was celebrating 20 years of being in the industry and one of my designs was chosen to be featured by our company in RollingStone.
