With her latest album ‘Blue Mandolin’ produced by Bill Shanley, Maria Butterly, stands poised to be the new jewel in the crown in Ireland’s rich crop of musical talent. Maria came to me looking for the perfect visual design to accompany her latest recording. I decided a combination of lush imagery and subtle typography would do the trick that fits both the tone of the album and her new style. An attractive palette of colors and good use of negative space gives a clean, contemporary feel. Lauded on TV3’s Ireland AM as ‘One of Ireland’s most talented Singer/Songwriters’, Maria soon delivered on such promise with the much-prized ‘Songwriter of the Year’ accolade at the Leinster Entertainment Awards. Her original style draws on influences from both the Irish Contemporary Folk genre and the American Country-Bluegrass genre, as can be heard on Blue Mandolin.
You are my Heaven
For the CD single “You are my Heaven” I used contrasting colours and prominent typography to make a strong impression which contributed to Maria’s award for ‘Best New Original Single 2015’ – Farmers Journal Award
