No project is complete without a visual component. Album covers, show posters, marketing materials... All of that is a crucial element to every release and campaign. Jeff Everett (Rockets Are Red, El Jefe Design) is a dude that has been intimately involved in the visual side of music for decades and somehow ONLY gets better with time as he branches out into film and wrestling as well.
Jeff came by to talk about the business side of the music business, the visual side of the art form, the existential crisis moments every artist goes through, pulling your head out of tough spots and so much more.
His ability to eloquently describe these things and beautifully illustrate these things is the reason he is always working with bands like The Foo Fighters, Gaslight Anthem, Against Me!, The Bouncing Souls, Jawbreaker, Clutch; wrestlers like Dalton Castle, Danhausen, Luchabros, Jericho, and more; celebrating films like Point Break, Stephen King's IT, Before Sunrise, and more... The dude just does it all and is finally letting us all celebrate the journey in book form.
