Audible Originals

Amazon

We are creating ongoing cover art for a new series of episodic “Audible Original” content developed as “cinema for your ears” for mainstream entertainment audiences who don’t regularly read books, so the objective was to create artwork that feels more like a movie poster than a book cover.

This series is available globally via the Audible app, but is marketed heavily to an Indian audience.


我们正在为新系列的“Audible Original”内容创作一系列的封面设计,这些内容意在打造成为“听觉电影”,适用于不定期阅读书籍的主流娱乐受众群体,因此目标是创作出一个与传统书籍封面相比更偏电影海报的设计。

该系列可通过Audible应用程序在全球范围预览,但更偏重印度市场。


BHOOTIYAPA / Cover Art

India’s scariest incidences are often witnessed by the most unexpected sources – the rickshaw drivers who work late at night, the factory workers, the delivery boys who travel far into India’s interiors, etc. This series recounts their most hair-raising real life tales, the strange phenomena, ghost sightings and supernatural incidences they’ve witnessed with their own eyes. Cinematic sound design allows listeners to travel the country with them, late at night, in the back seat of their car, in the back corner of a factory, as they retell these incredible tales. The series is narrated by the subjects themselves, a first-of-its-kind eye witness series meant to transform listeners’ evening commutes as they too wonder, what tales their own driver can tell.

For this cover artwork, we collaborated with Mumbai-based artist Aaron Pinto.


印度最可怕的事故常常从最出乎意料之外的渠道得到证实:深夜工作的人力车司机、工厂工人、印度国内的快递员……该系列讲述了他们现实生活中最令人毛骨悚然的故事以及奇怪的现象。他们亲眼目睹的鬼魂与超自然事件。如同影院般的音效将使你在他们讲述这些令人难以置信的故事同时也在深夜里与他们一起环游国家,仿佛置身于他们的汽车后座、工厂角落。该系列由事件者自己讲述,这是第一个目击者系列,旨在传递信息给到听众当他们在夜间通勤时,因为他们也很想知道自己的驾驶员会讲些什么。

SENTIMENTAL / Cover Art

This series removes the stigma from openly talking about mental health by two comedians who share their own mental health journey and guests on every episode (comedians, actors, experts, etc.) who are funny, honest and completely unashamed to talk about what’s been an otherwise taboo subject in India.

Mental Health is completely normal. Talk about how you’re feeling. Vent. Laugh with friends. Don’t feel ashamed to tell others how you feel.

For this cover artwork, we collaborated with Mumbai-based artist Priyanka Paul.


该系列消除了喜剧演员公开谈论心理健康的不便,将这个话题开诚布公地展现在听众面前。2位喜剧演员互相分享自己的心理健康历程,每集节目嘉宾(喜剧演员,演员,专家……)都以有趣、诚实且大胆的方式谈论在印度被禁忌的话题。

Swami Hasyadev Maharaj is Vir Das’s spiritual alter ego, a sweet-talking guru who touts the miraculous power of laughter and offers disastrously misguided advice.

AGLA STATION INVESTIGATION / Cover Art

Agla Station Investigation is a true-crime parody series. Each episode features sergeant Aishwaryuh and two detectives investigating a new “crime”——such as a stolen office lunch or a doll that’s missing its head—that hardly warrants an investigation.

Under the leadership of Aishwaryuh, the two airheaded detectives of the petty crimes division—Aiyadaman and Chanaka—are quickly whipped into shape. Despite solving a record number of cases, the ambitious Aishwaryuh isn’t content with being stuck working small-time misdemeanors. She’s eager to move up the ranks and work homicide cases, which she eventually succeeds in doing.

Both victims and investigators in this series treat these humdrum occurrences with the seriousness of a gritty crime drama. Agla Station Investigation is an absurd sendup of a familiar genre.

For the cover artwork, we collaborated with Mumbai-based artist Priyanka Paul.


《阿格拉站的调查》是一个真实犯罪模仿秀的系列。每集讲述的都是由新来的探长和两名探员一起调查一个不同的 “犯罪活动”,例如:丢失的办公室午餐,没有头部的洋娃娃等这类不太值得进行调查的事件。

在新来的探长Aishwaryuh的领导下,轻罪部门的破案率提升了许多,她手下的两名滑稽的探员Aiyamdaman和Chanakya也变得训练有素。但尽管解决了许许多多的案件,雄心勃勃的Aishwaryuh并不满足于解决的小规模的轻罪案件,Aishwaryuh渴望去谋杀部门充分发挥自己的才能,最终她成功了。

在这个系列的故事里,受害者和探员都使用对待真正的犯罪活动一样的严肃态度来对待这些单调乏味的日常事件。 《阿格拉站的调查》是以一个搞笑浮华的的方式来模仿一个熟悉的犯罪节目的故事。
