YEAIKNOW has a long-standing collaboration with an environmental scientist, Benjamin Gottesman, who records and analyzes sounds by installing recorders in nature (i.e., coral reef, iceberg, jungle, etc.) to study the human impact to the wildlife in the environment. Our designs have been instrumental to Benjamin and his work in that it elevates what could be a dry subject matter with bold, eye-catching design. Most recently, in 2018, he reached out to YEAIKNOW to design the covers of an alternative nature sound album, of the sandhill crane of Nebraska, which was also funded and released by the Crane Trust in Nebraska. We aimed to not overwhelm the visual design by choosing to simply place cut-off of cranes on a white background and fading the presence of the text by outlining with thin strokes giving the visual excitement to the CD itself which features an abstract illustration of the sandhill cranes in its environment.
