Maggie Herron

A Ton Of Trouble Album Design

Local Hawaii jazz artist Maggie Herron, is a 3x winner of Hawaii’s Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award for Jazz Album of the Year.


For her 4th studio album, Maggie wanted the artwork to stylistically reflect the fun and playful nature of the album’s title track, and came to us with her concept of having a falling grand piano as the subject of the album’s cover art. Working through a number of illustration concepts, the final artwork features a number of different design elements including: both digital and hand rendered paintings, photography by Krystle Marcellus and custom typography, based off of an old 1940’s Jazz poster.
