Join Us is the fifteenth record album by indie pop band They Might Be Giants. Founded in 1982, the group has released well over 40 albums (as of September 2023).
On this 2011 record, the typography is dynamic with the artwork, as the “They” is lowered due to it being run over. Design by Paul Sahre, who created multiple covers for They Might Be Giants in later years. All info is set in a single weight of Neue Helvetica – and not Neue Haas Grotesk which was released the same year as this artwork.
The image of the huge-wheeled hearse from the album artwork was brought to life as a giant 12 ft DIY cut-out paper model. Printed at full size (to do that, scale the pdf up to 3400%), cut out and assembled, the funeral wagon was the star of the music video for “When will you die?”.
