Toto “TAMBU” Album & Tour

Art Direction / Print & CD Packaging Design

Toto Tambu Pkg

In 1995, Sony Music International, in association with Toto‘s representation  Fitzgerald-Hartley, issued a powerful comeback campaign directive for the band; the first result was “Tambu”… Inspired by the band’s fascination in invented word-hybrid… “Something which could mean something brand new unto itself,” a cross between “taboo” and the tamboe, an instrument played by percussionist Simon Phillips.

Tambu – the album – was a conceit born of a love for pulp-fiction covers and tawdry bedside reading. The album concept, devised by Eric Scott and Doug Brown (WorldWest Communications), involved a period juke joint setting, in which the band were to be filmed and photographed while performing, for both their album photography and music video “I Will Remember”… The design of the sleeve itself was a laborious affair, involving the creation of a custom typeface “5 4 0” (a distressed variation on Caslon) and many coffee-stained and soiled pages of a lyric booklet; representing the innards of the same pulp novel…

1994-1998 : Eric Scott Art Direction Portfolio

Immediately prior to launching a full-time career in 1998 as Creative Director with Day For Night, Eric Scott was Art Director with WorldWest Communications, and worked with recording industry clients Sony Music International and Zebra Records, to produce packaging design for some of their top artists.

In 1995, Sony Music International, in association with Toto‘s representation Fitzgerald-Hartley, issued a powerful comeback campaign directive for the band; the first result was “Tambu“… Inspired by the band’s fascination in invented word-hybrid… “Something which could mean something brand new unto itself,” a cross between “taboo” and the tamboe, an instrument played by percussionist Simon Phillips.

Tambu – the album – was a conceit born of a love for pulp-fiction covers and tawdry bedside reading. The album concept, devised by Eric Scott and Doug Brown (WorldWest Communications), involved a period juke joint setting, in which the band were to be filmed and photographed while performing, for both their album photography and music video “I Will Remember”… The design of the sleeve itself was a laborious affair, involving the creation of a custom typeface “5 4 0” (a distressed variation on Caslon) and many coffee-stained and soiled pages of a lyric booklet; representing the innards of the same pulp novel… This was to be followed in 1997 by a collection of the Toto’s archival “XX“.

Digital Strategy

Main areas of Digital Strategy include our consultation and creative services in the following:

Day For Night would LOVE to sit down to have a chat with you. Not just to get to know you (honestly, that’s really a big part of the fun) but also to help guide your company’s brand towards a successful digital presence. To us, that’s what digital strategy is — getting to hear what you believe in, what your brand is all about (or going to be about) and helping provide you with quality options to further your vision.

The difference between ‘digital strategy’ and our other creative services is that the focus can be simply upon . We’d love to design for you, but if you’ve already got that, there’s so much more left to discuss regarding your long-term goals. Your digital archival legacy, your user experience, and your social medial all fit into the big picture which we embrace as part of your overall creative strategy…

So let’s get our heads together, and make that happen.

Day For Night :: Client Portfolio

April 1998 marked the start date of Eric Scott’s career as Creative Director with Day For Night Multimedia. After a very productive “re-invention hiatus” of three months, re-focusing priorities from his previous role as Art Director with WorldWest Communications, Eric moved all of his attention on developing a compact and flexible studio environment; one which required little or no overhead and minimal cost outlay. The first commercial pitch was a home run: to Touchstone Television/Imagine Entertainment/Disney Online, for the design of a web presence for “Felicity” resident advisor Noel Crane.

The objective was two-fold; to create a viral marketing and word-of-mouth piece for the show, and allow for there to be spirit of discovery and renewal for fans of the show, who would discover, by only the most casual of mentions, that fictitious Noel’s homepage really did exist online. Today, a commonplace enough occurrence, but a pretty radical idea, back in 1998, when only the elite seemed to understand web tools well enough to devise a minimalistic presence.
