The Lectouroise photographer Jeanne Delécluse has been making the album covers for Pascal Obispo since 2012. The latest, that of “France”, has just been released. It was created in the heart of the Gers: “I am a freelance graphic designer based in Lectoure. I have several other hats, in particular that of photographer ”.
She tells how this collaboration was born: “I was working with Pascal Obispo’s record company (Sony) at the time of the release of his album“ Millésimes ”. They were looking for a graphic designer to create his cover and they chose me. This is how our collaboration began, in 2012. Today, we work remotely and live. Most of the time, I go to Paris in his studio to finalize the projects. In 2020, I made a number of covers for the release of its “Obispo All Access” application, in which it offers a wide variety of content and albums in many musical styles. I am very happy to have taken part in this crazy project ”.
Declension of the design
Regarding the artist’s latest album, “France”, Jeanne Delécluse explains that she created the cover between her office “in the heart of Lectoure, and the LIR, in Fleurance, where I regularly come to work. In general, he provides me with one or more photographs (that of the album “France” was taken by Dominique Gau) and, from this, I make different proposals for layout, colors, typography, etc. After a few exchanges, we arrive at the final cover. I then create the interior booklet and apply this design to other elements, other formats, such as the vinyl sleeve for example ”.
Jeanne Delécluse is working on other graphic design projects: “We are entering the season for greeting cards and some for local merchants (Fleurance, Lectoure) will see the light of day before Christmas”.
