When I was working on acrylique (updated the post with the new font) Eve asked me if I could also manage a font for her name as musical artist: dj EVE-LYS or DJ EVE-LYS .
The first line is the reference. Then, I thought it won’t fit every case of graphic interaction. Even changing color for a better integration on background. Or on more complex stuff. So I made also an outlined, and a bold version.
And… at the end, I tried a quick 3D exploration, something simple… and I came with something… curious. But I liked it, so I kept it.
The second visual is a quick test on my choices, illustrating one Eve’s track I love so much: “Entends-tu pousser les fleurs”, which means “Do you hear flowers growing?”. I would love to have it on vinyl, to mix it with my favorite ambient LPs. I do hope this will decide Eve to press it one day. As you can see, I didn’t put the title, even which vinyl side it is. For me, it has to be a “B side”, to stay as pure and minimal as possible.
