D’Angelo had it all: two platinum selling albums, a sold out world tour and a body chiselled to perfection. However, one day at the height of his career in 2000 the soul singer vanished. For 12 years he descended into darkness. Out of nowhere, in December 2014, his third album Black Messiah was suddenly released: soundtrack of the lost years.

The main title appears. The cigarette smoke makes the title disappear again. Just like D’Angelo suddenly disappeared himself.

Poster design Devil’s Pie – D’Angelo

The typography of the title cards and the poster was based on the typography of the Black Messiah album at the request of D’Angelo management.
