Matthäus Music Video Direction & Album Artwork

The Chicago-based band Matthäus asked me to design a cover for their EP Effigy, as well as create a music video for the subsequent single Before You Said Goodbye.

Hand-drawn illustration and animation is paired with After Effects animation and assorted footage. The songwriter wanted to tell a simple story that fit the mood of the song. I sketched and storyboarded with the song on repeat and eventually used that "journal" aesthetic in the final video as it seemed like a good fit.
