Synapse is a design company who specialize in album covers.... and then incorporate this into web design for the specific artists.
They usually do designs for more alternative/metal/punk bands... like these for 'The Casino Brawl' and 'Four Letter Lie'
I really admire their work... probably because they incorporate a lot of photography in the designs. There hasn't been one bit of work by them i have seen without loving it.
As music is one of my most prominent influences, I always notice cover art... this is one that stuck in my memory. 'Four Letter Lie'...'A New Day'
