Album Crawl 3.0: The Y2K Jam

Left Side Drive

Concept: “You must have fucked up to land here… (a sendoff for some dead punks) A hyperliminal album crawl set to "Trans Canada Highway" by Boards of Canada.”
Content: An atmospheric road trip through and beyond CY.
Writing: Atmospheric phrases paint broad strokes for each component locale and the people or things that might be encountered along the way.
Art/Design: Two columns of content with separate content boxes for the album tracks and relevant content. Black on light green color scheme with pink accents. Stripped-down map of locations help indicate possible trajectories for a traveling party.
Usability: Readable fonts with high contrast color choices and consistent embellishments and whitespace to indicate headings/labels, list items, atmospheric descriptions, and so on.

Right the Wrong of the Greater

Concept: “A linear CY_Crawl based on Skinny Puppy's album "The Greater Wrong Of The Right" made for the Album Crawl 3.0 Y2K Jam. Take your life back from those in power and scale their brutalist tower to Right the Wrong… Each room of the crawl is based of a track from the album. Lyrical content was the main source of inspiration for what happens in each.”
Content: A revenge mission/crawl up through a high-rise, set to Skinny Puppy.
Writing: Location/track pairings served with atmospheric details about each site and the goings-on there that the punks might run into during their ascent.
Art/Design: Overall aesthetic as record sleeves & inserts, with a mix of hand-drawn illustrations, pasted/collaged elements, and screenprinting. Maps, location features, and NPC portraits are all provided.
Usability: Organization of content is easy to follow, with alternating text/graphic pages and consistent labeling and fore/ground contrast throughout. However, text is not selectable, which might impact some readers’ experience.
