Lockdown Recordings, hits their 50th release…

I have worked as a designer for Lockdown Recordings for a few years. Lockdown Recordings is a Bristol-based independent record label specialising in Drum & Bass & Jungle Music.

Established in 2003, Lockdown has steadily established itself as a well–respected label that has also developed a reputation for finding and establishing new talent and bringing that to the forefront of the electronic music scene.

With a particular style and sound, Lockdown required a particular kind of designer…

I have worked with the label, producing music artwork and covers for most of their releases. The styles have varied from more abstract, full artwork designs, to more refined photography and typography layouts.

Designing the look of a label…

The artwork has always been descriptive of the music, as well as the track title. As a  brief, I am usually sent the track and use that along with the subject of the title to create a design that I feel resonates with the styles of the music. Usually, this produces pretty accurate results that are generally well received.

The website design…

As well as helping the record label establish a style through the artwork and branding I also designed and built their music website.

The responsive website design contains a content management system, designed to easily promote and display news, releases, info on artists and music. You can view the site here
