Here Come The Mummies

Here Come The Mummies

Here Come The Mummies is a groovy Funk/R&B band consisting of incredible musicians, best known for their tongue-in-cheek lyrics and energetic live performances where each member has an Egyptian mummy persona and costume. Needless to say this was a fun site to work on! For their 2013 album release, Cryptic, they wanted to convey a slight stylistic departure from their usual cartoon-ish style to one using imagery that's slightly darker and scarier. To start with, I designed a new logo that was a departure from their previous horror film style lettering. For the site, we talked with the band about ideas for their photo shoot and how those could fuel fun designs that suited their brand. We also wanted to capture some of the fun and wackiness of their live presence. I not only had fun with all of the photo compositing but also the illustration of the ancient Egyptian page headers and backgrounds.

For the album art, I was involved in designing the logo, colors, "Cryptic" title, all of the layout and typesetting, and band photo compositing. The artwork is by Steelgohst.
