    Artwork for a 10″ record that Salt Cathedral put out in 2019 featuring dub legend Lee “Scratch” Perry.

    Keeping in mind the characteristic use of reverberation and strong bass lines in dub music, the graphic concept was based on the idea of visually representing “vibrations”. The letters were illustrated based on the custom typeface Electric Circus, designed by the famed studio Brownjohn, Chermayfeff & Geismar in 1960. All the elements form a sound system.
