Jamie Cruickshank’s debut EP is a deeply personal piece of work, written and recorded in his room with a select few close collaborators, it documents his time overcoming chronic fatigue syndrome.

Jamie and I began work considering what elements of his songwriting we wanted to communicate.

The limited palette, loose type and credits presented in full are all decisions made to express his human, exposed approach.

Working on this sleeve with tom...

The colour way, stripped back illustration and imperfect typography is a representation of Jamie's authentic tone of voice. I wanted to reflect the brutal honesty he employs writing his songs when I designed his sleeve.
