THS collaborated with film makers Adam Smith and Marcus Lyall on
the design of the artwork for Further.
For this album Smith and Lyall created
a visual interpretation of the entire record. Each of the album’s eight tracks is accompanied with a unique short film which when viewed as a whole forms loose narrative – a kind of abstract journey, like Alice falling through a psychedelic wonderland.
The band wanted the concept to be extended into the artwork – establishing a unified aethetic that ran through the whole project. Beginning with the Live shoes through to every format from iTunes LP to print billboards.
In early discussions about artwork we were keen to avoid simply just lifting grabs from the films themselves, but instead piggy-back the actual film shoot with stills photography allowing us to create a set of imagery that would be unique to the artwork.
