Ibibio Sound Machine

A very enjoyable departure from my usual design fare, Ibibio Sound Machine’s debut album – and accompanying single Let’s Dance (Yak Inek Unek) – both required something that reflected the music’s angular, disco sound, featuring the band’s frontwoman Eno Williams. Williams provided the Ibibio-related design in the fabric she wore, so my main job was to present the disco/post-punk element of the recordings, including an updated version of the band’s logo and photo treatment.
