Humanoid No More — Hypnotic Beats Duo

Introducing Humanoid No More

Retro-Futuristic Design for Electronic Music Duo

Humanoid No More is a music and enter­tain­ment col­lab­o­ra­tion between myself and Jamie Tait. We’re a hyp­not­ic beats duo. 

We set warped sci­ence fic­tion style sound­tracks to a funky beat.

In devel­op­ing a design lan­guage for this project, we had a num­ber of touch-points of inspi­ra­tion: Main­ly vin­tage sci­ence fic­tion book cov­ers, posters, and oth­er collectibles.

The Logotype

A lin­ear let­ter­ing logo type for the artist name evolved. This matched the over­all retro-futur­is­tic theme we were developing.

The Humanoid No More Website

We built the web­site ( as a cen­tral hub for the group. It sim­ply con­tains links to the lat­est release and the artist’s social media accounts, as well as a shop and mail­ing list.

What’s with the Tiger?

The group has been using a tiger illus­tra­tion as a sym­bol for social media avatars and so-on. It just devel­oped from the song “Tiger Squares.” Per­haps the tiger was once a Humanoid, but not anymore!
