Case Study - Anna Waronker California Fade

Originally, our involvement with Anna Waronker’s newest record, California Fade, began with a simple layout assignment for her album art. As it turns out, our duties would grow to include web design, merchandise design, promotional graphic design, and social networking management. We are also honored to have partnered with Anna on the release of the vinyl edition of California Fade through her own Five Foot Two Records imprint, in conjunction with Riot Structure.



We created an original, hand drawn illustration for the limited EP. The illustration features a collage of images inspired by Anna's lyrics and the California Fade LP portrait by Mary Wigmore. Elements of the EP cover
were carried over into the handwritten lyrics for the lyric sheet. The cover illustration has also been used for screen printed t-shirts and tote bags available through Anna’s website. The Anna EP is exclusively available on bone colored vinyl in the limited, double-record edition of California Fade.



Photographs were taken in and around Anna’s neighborhood and home to give her website and lyric sleeves a personal touch that compliments the intimate nature of the music. Images of Anna’s studio and living spaces were incorporated into the background for annawaronker.com to give the site a uniquely warm personality. In order to specifically brand the album apart from the artist, a microsite was created for the record's release. Aspects of the album, including the art and the color scheme, were threaded throughout the microsite.

We’ve also written original copy for the promotion of the album including the artist biography, the album’s press release, and the web content for both of Anna’s sites and her social networking profiles. A variety of biographies and promotional announcements were written to accommodate fans, members of the press, and music industry professionals.



Working with Anna on California Fade has been both a challenging and uniquely rewarding opportunity to implement each of the many design solutions offered by our team. Ultimately, the satisfaction we gained from this project was magnified by our admiration for the artist and the album. We hope that the most ardent of Anna’s fans agree that the support we provided for the release of California Fade compliments the strength of the album’s song craft.
