Award of Excellence in Design for Mama Africa album art, on Neenah Astrobright paper. With over 3,800+ entries, only the top 10% were selected as winners, including us! Topping 13 consecutive years of award recognition from Graphic Design USA, Jessey Jansen shares her inspiration behind the art.
Voice of Maasai album art combines my artistic skills with my passion for helping others. Sold as limited editions, it is an actionable way for our fans to be the catalyst for budding Maasai talent.
Mama Africa conjures up visuals of bright color, bold patterns, and effortless cool style, but many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view. As I try to imagine how Attu perceives the world around her, my design unites two profiles, the famed musician in the publics eye and the visually impaired person when off stage. A courageous young woman, who will no doubt defeat the pressures of industry double standards and vanity with courage and determination. The format is inspired by the nostalgic 12" vinyl record covers, paying homage to keeping the music (the story) alive.
