Director Marie Jamora commissioned me to design the vinyl sleeve for the soundtrack of her CineMalaya film “Ang Nawawala (What Isn’t There).” The story is set against the backdrop of the local indie music scene so I wanted the design to have a rough, unprocessed look – kind of like a hand-drawn-on-the-spot gig poster. 

The cover illustration is my take on what I felt the most memorable scene in the film was, a sweet bedroom dance party for two. Since the film is about twins and the quest for their identities, “side A” and “side B” of the record were represented with images of the siblings.

The actual record is clear which is also a subtle nod to the title and the feeling of emptiness that comes before one ultimately finds him/her sense of self.

Eheads Boxed Set

I was commissioned by Sony Music to design a box set for the Eraserheads. The band was already disbanded at the time but they got together for a massively attended reunion concert the year before.

Having designed 4 albums, 2 fanzines, a picture book, and several side-project albums for the Eheads in the ’90s, the record company felt that I could gather all those experiences and come up with an idea for the boxed compilation.

The result was a tin container emboss-printed with an inverted E (the band’s symbol) made up of doodled elements that represented their songs. Inside the box is a thick “scrapbook” of old photos juxtaposed with the band’s story, song lyrics, and other info that encompassed their 9 years in the business. The box also contained CDs of all their albums and a special commemorative t-shirt.

Tippi Ocampo fashion design book

Fellow graphic designers Lizza Gutierrez, Chinggay Labrador and I collaborated on the book design for fashion designer Tippi Ocampo’s “Not By the Book.” Tippi is known for quirky, irreverent designs that use a variety of materials, patterns, and textures so we sought to reflect that in our layouts. The book is covered in chocolate brown fabric, the title is stitched on like a clothing tag, and the closure at the back uses hook and eye fasteners.

Local band Imago commissioned me to design their album “Effect Desired” None.” I was given MP3s of the songs along with striking black & white photos of the band members. Listing down words that stood out to me from the songs, I came up with a design that I felt translated the cheerful & relaxed vibe of the music, incorporating a few bright colors here and there to complement the monochromatic images.

Wedding Essentials Magazine

Wedding Essentials Magazine was founded in 2004 by Sesame Seed Creatives with my fellow advertising industry graduate Marbee Shing-Go as Editor-in-Chief and myself as Design Director.

Because it was a brand new publication. I was tasked to develop the overall look and visual identity of the magazine. My responsibilities included creative / art direction for photo shoots & layouts as well as editorial spread concept development.

Being a newlywed at the time, working for the magazine was a wonderful experience since it made me relive my wedding preparation days.
