I started working with Envelopes shortly after they stopped being The Nicotines. At the time they were living in a farmhouse in north Yorkshire, rehearsing and recording what was to become their debut on Brille Records ‘Demon’. ‘Demon’ means ‘Demos’ in Swedish.
At this distance, but working closely with Audrey Pic, singer and guitarist, we developed a new identity, designed artwork for album and single releases, designed and produced merchandise, and art directed photo shoots.
The images from the front of Demon, It Is The Law and the labels of Sister In Love were taken from reproduction in a French book. Originally made in the 16th century by the surgeon to the king at the time. There is a combination of wonder, fear and naivety about the drawings, which were made from reports rather than observation.
