2023 Design Excellence Award

Big Win for VOM + JJ + Pendo Moringe for Irmaasai Lang album art🥂Jessey Jansen, Austin based founder and album cover artist receives 13 consecutive years of design recognition from #gdusa🏅

Inspiration Behind the Album Art

Pendo is 22 years old, same as my daughter, an impressionable age where tension between interdependence and independence is still critical. I see a strong, caring, go-getter, a fear-tackler, unafraid to stand up for what she believes in, if she can continue on this uplifting path, I trust she can be an optimistic advocate for her peers, community and a bright star in our ever-expanding label.

Art made from layers of cut paper inspired by the nostalgic 12" vinyl record covers, paying homage to keeping the music (the story) alive.

I am honored to receive this notable award for my design excellence. Combining my artistic skills with my passion for helping others, album art is sold as limited editions, a direct way for our passionate fans to support our social impact label.

Collect limited edition album art and become part of our inner circle. Listen to Irmaasai Lang and read more about Pendo's new release.
