Back in 2013 we designed Little Green Cars’ first album ‘Absolute Zero’ which reached number one in the Irish music charts. A few years later we were delighted when they got in touch and asked us to work on the artwork for their second album. 

The new album was to be called ‘Ephemera’ and explores the idea of endings, new beginnings and the transient nature of life. The band were keen to incorporate Patrick Scott’s tile mosaics at Busáras in some way as they are a beautiful part of Dublin’s Ephemera. 

We engaged photographer Matthew Thompson to photograph the mosaics and we art directed a shoot of both the mosaics and the band at Busáras. We used these photographs in the artwork for the album and complemented the patterns with special print techniques such as a clear spot varnish on the disco sleeve.
