    We worked with folk rock icons The Avett Brothers on an ambitious design for their latest studio album, Closer Than Together. Our approach eschews typical genre conventions with a playful, interactive, and unexpected experience rooted in the concept of duality. The typography reinforces this concept through the pairing of a heavy sans serif (Dia) with a svelte serif (Ogg). A reverse-stress slab serif (Maelstrom) was used as a display face to impart a vintage yet contemporary western vibe.
