Fuzzy Nonsense | Mono A Mono Album Artwork and Audio Cassette Packaging

Mono A Mono is an audio project of Seattle artist Nick Droz. Fuzzy Nonsense is the first official release. It was recorded entirely on 4-Track tape, mixed to mono, and released on glorious lo-fi audio cassette.

The client wanted the album artwork to seamlessly blend balls-to-the-wall “metal” with pure silliness. His concept involved using the creative grooming dog photo.

The dog is prominently featured on the cover set against a dark-gloomy backdrop. The grid on the ground provides depth, which adds to the cheesy 80s metal aesthetic we were after.

A rough sketch version of the dog also appears on the inside of the j-card.

If you were at a record shop and you saw to see this Fuzzy Nonsense audio cassette in a bin containing a bunch of other audio cassettes, there is no way that you wouldn’t pick it up to get a closer look.
