James Blunt Album

It's been a musical Summer - hot on the heels of the Lennon job, I was asked to work on James Blunt's new album, Some Kind Of Trouble plus his latest single, Stay The Night. The album is due to be released on the 8th November and the single on the 25th October.

The loose brush lettering was created to work with the overall design of the packaging which has an old school, scrapbook feel. The layouts were put together traditionally with sellotape and paper and then photographed, so I felt my lettering needed to be as raw and immediate as possible to work with the designs. The style was also taken through to James Blunt's new website:

If you'd like to see more of my music work take a look at my word>music folder on my website.


  1. Great work Ruth! Love the brush lettering - especially on the name. It appears as though it was done very fast, but I bet it wasn't.

  2. I do lot's of options before I'm happy with it. I bet you find the same - it's like exercising - you have to warm up a bit first!

  3. I know the wonderful baby girl on the cover(:

  4. Amanda are you just a fan of shaycarl?
