    Boy Wonder by Finnish rapper and singer William was one the most anticipated albums in Finland. His second album comes with a baby photo that is inspired by two legendary covers, Nirvana’s Nevermind and Notorious B.I.G.’s Ready to Die.

    The chrome effect applied to the typeface Evangelion by Doménico Barreto nowadays is inspired by many different genres. You can find it in funk (Commodores), metal (AC/DC), and hip hop (Pen & Pixel Mixtapes) – a classic way of Photoshop-made 3D typography that never gets old.

    Trajan was used for the tracklist and features of this album. Pantai Bali, which was also used in the previous release of “Ympyrää”, adds an aesthetic that reflects a sort of classical music cover in a color scheme similar to the famous Scarface posters. The artist himself was even wearing a white suit in all of the press images for print and digital media around Helsinki.

    The tracklist was revealed with a countdown on the city’s biggest shopping center screen, running for four days until the release on October 1st, 2021.
