Ming & Ping is an electro-pop musical group consisting of Hong Kong-born identical twins, Ming and Ping, and myself as producer. While I no longer produce the music, I remain the visual and organizational side of the group, helping them achieve international success with highly stylized artwork and memorabilia to match their electrifying music.
Producing the visual side of Ming & Ping has given me an opportunity to flex every creative muscle in my body as well as gain invaluable experience in directing creative teams, organizing time and budget, and simply letting talented people do what they are good at.
IDENTITY: CMYK POP
The main goal was to present a super modern image using nearly sterile layouts, hairline accents and minimal typography. We then added a splash of the high-chroma CMYK color scheme to energize the whole image and make the 80’s reference.
PRODUCTS & PACKAGING
Because Ming & Ping remains a self-released act, the main design challenge is to squeeze every last drop of creativity out of a very low budget. This has created a continuous search for new ways of using popular and affordable materials and manufacturing processes.
