“He understood what we wanted… better than ourselves.”

We tried to extend this motive of duality to the artwork as well. However, we only insisted on the hourglass as a central element. The rest is the amazing work of the brilliant Mario Nevado who often knew better than ourselves what we actually wanted. He had such a tremendous understanding for the whole concept and was a pleasure to work with. Throughout the artwork there are numerous details that play with duality and subtle transitions. As a whole the vivid colours of the artwork form another contrast to the design of “A World so Cold”.
