Michael Holt and the Trophy 500’s Packaging and Collateral
Michael Holt and the Trophy 500’s are an Austin experience unlike any other. The album cover and gig poster were commissioned by V8 Records. The energy, color and retro style convey the eclectic mix of jazz, swing, and blues that permeates the band’s music and personality.
The prolific and eclectic Austin music scene was a creative imperative for this project. The locale plays as much a roll in the melting pot of the classic sounds as does the creative direction and influences of the amazing ensemble of local musicians. There’s also a communal attitude and pride that resonates within the local scene. The indy vibe, Austin blues scene, and retro throwback to the basic roots combine to create something uniquely “Austin” for Michael and his Trophy 500’s.
