The final album cover design is shown in the images to the left, and you can hear more of Nigel’s music here.
“I approached Red Fred Creative to pitch ideas for the cover of my 7th solo album “Navigate”.
I knew that John and Jonathan were passionate music fans, and I was impressed by the promptness and diligence with which they went about listening to tracks – there was a clear intention to understand the stories and feelings behind the music and we duly had regular dialogues on this.
I was then literally blown away as Red Fred submitted 4 design ideas, all of which were excellent and any of which I would have been happy to use. The one I settled upon is now going out into the world and already receiving plaudits.
“Navigate” will be promoted, seen and heard nationally and internationally.
I would heartily recommend Red Fred to anyone looking for album cover design or artwork for music related projects.
In 20 years of producing albums for internationally known acts – and releasing my own solo albums – I have worked with and observed many designers.
I genuinely consider Jonathan and John to be ‘top drawer’ and consummate professionals in every aspect of their work.
