Cover art for i,i by Bon Iver

The musical and visual components for Bon Iver’s fourth studio album were created in unison. Designer Eric Timothy Carlson spent six weeks at Sonic Ranch recording studio in El Paso, Texas, with the American folk band.

The resulting artwork is made up of many parts: drawings and illustrations, icons, logos and typography, with the packaging of the album incorporated into the design process.

The front features a collage of incense smoke over a photograph of the band in the desert.

Designers: Eric Timothy Carlson and Aaron Anderson.
