The National - I Am Easy To Find
For their eight studio album, 'I Am Easy To Find', The National partnered up with the incredibly rad director, designer, producer, and Oscar nominee Mike Mills.
Together, they worked for over a year to create a beautiful 40-minute film companion the album. Taking the role of Creative Director, Mike also developed the album's packaging and visual style, along with with L.A. based studio OSK.
We worked closely with him and the band to develop a clean typographic system that eloquently constructed and deconstructed itself across a multitude of formats. Black and white photography and video intersected with colorful paint strokes, both layered beneath kinetic type. Together it formed a sophisticated design system that’s both utilitarian and iconic.
