Happier Than Ever

Billie Eilish’s “Happier Than Ever” is a raw and honest exploration of love, loss, and self-discovery. A genre-bending mix of pop, electropop, jazz, folk, and R&B, this album takes a vulnerable and introspective look at the challenges of growing up in the spotlight, the anguish of heartbreak, and Billie’s personal journey to find inner contentment.
The album redesign reflects the themes of embracing a broken past and discovering a new sense of self in a dreamlike world where you don’t quite fit in.

For the cover, I wanted to fabricate an uncanny dreamscape that felt imagined. The scene juxtaposes the withered petals of the subject with the vibrant flowers in the out of focus foreground and background. Everything is bathed in soft natural light and the colors are overly rich and vivid, pushing the sense of being out of touch with reality.
