Band Branding & Artwork
DACARA are a Manchester-based rock band that needed a quirky image to match their eccentric songs, with their music taking influence from videogames, anime and popular culture. I have worked with the band to design all of their branding and visual content with a distinctive green colour palette, which we carried through when styling their photo and video shoots, and merchandise.
