Album Design.

Astro is a conceptual album by Mateo Kingman, an Ecuadorian singer-songwriter who fuses traditional Latin American sounds with hip-hop, rock and pop. This album is about a round trip that Mateo had towards his inner universe, through self discovery and transformation. Mateo visualized each of the songs as a stop or teaching on this journey. Our visual representation of the journey took the form of a solar system, Mateo as the main star, the center and the beginning of the journey, and song number 7 as the farthest point Mateo reached to undertake his return journey. We created a planet for each song that allowed us to narrate the journey of this spiritual trip. The illustrations were inspired by astronomical maps and astrological charts from the 19th century, reaching somewhere between science and spirituality.
