Active in the Los Angeles music scene for more than three decades, he has photographed artists such as XTC, Social Distortion, Steve Earle, k.d. lang, and Lucinda Williams, for clients including Virgin, Epic, MCA, Warner Bros., and Rough Trade Records. He has also served as art director on numerous projects for Rhino, Concord, Warner UK, and Vanguard, among others. He has designed box sets for John Coltrane, Miles Davis, and Alice Cooper, as well as coffee-table books (Creem: America’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll Magazine), soundtracks (Sex And The City, Hairspray), and catalog reissues for the likes of Elvis Costello, Fleetwood Mac, and The Stooges. With an eye for detail and a vast knowledge of musical styles and eras, Allen has an eclectic design repertoire that encompasses classic album repackaging and new projects alike.
Developing a website for Greg Allen was fun and challenging. Allen’s extensive work needed to be featured in large format to ensure that a high degree of quality is communicated on screen. He also has a sophisticated standard for aesthetics and detail which had to be taken into account and featured prominently. We were able to translate his vision into a website that serves his images – and his many fans – well.
