Visual Dreamscapes by Samuel Burgess-Johnson

Samuel Burgess-Johnson is a London based multimedia artist, typographer and art director who has designed visual dreamscapes and psychedelic artworks for many current popular musicians today. While in university, Burgess-Johnson has experimented with image making by starting a clothing line called Fortyounce London, which is where he made a lot of connection within the music industry.

Samuel Burgess-Johnson started out by designing the album cover to Ta-Ku’s ‘Songs To Break Up To’ and The 1975’s debut album while in Melbourne, Australia in 2012-2013. These two albums received a lot of attention, and this is when Samuel started getting more design requests for album art.

Burgess-Johnson’s designs are highly experimental using a long process of trial and error with photo stitching or painting. His designs are mostly vague and ambiguous, left for viewers’ own interpretation.
