When Sascha Konietzko (of KMFDM) decided to remaster and re-release his iconic side project, Excessive Force, I was charged with creating the updated CD designs. The new album cover design approach needed to be something new and fresh, yet still retain the general look and feel of the albums’ original release. Utilizing the militaristic iconography and conceptual themes first established in the original Excessive Force albums’ artwork and music, I’ve created a new visual approach reminiscent of an old, war-torn, military document complete with military ID cards and customized stencil typeface.
