Adult. Album Covers

ADULT. are an electroclash husband-and-wife duo. The choice of displaying their name in all-caps with a period gives a punch and finality to it. Both possessing art degrees, it is not surprising that the artists themselves are responsible for creating their album artwork. Nicola Kuperus, not only provides the vocals for their rough sound but also utilizes her photographic skill to craft the mysterious yet grim scenes that grace the covers of ADULT.’s output. The subjects are very consistent: a woman without her face ever revealed in an almost artificial situation. Many of them appear distressed or nefarious, further adding to the aggressive aesthetic for the group. Another noticeable element is the use of all-caps Helvetica typographically, which its plain, neutral look gives more power to the expressive photographs.
