Nobody Can Live Forever - The Existential Soul of Tim Maia

October 2012

This project was first designed by another designer, went on hiatus, and then came to me to finish. I designed the LP gatefold and labels, and laid everything else out. Tim's music is both dense and loose, and his legacy and iconography fun to work and play with. I made many advertisements and promotional materials for Luaka Bop's Tim Maia Nobody Can Live Forever including cut outs of the planets and stars that were part of this album's design scheme that I personally hung at Aquarius Records in San Francisco for Record Store Day, and which I observed still hanging there months later as I biked by. I guess that record store closed though. Nobody can live forever..
