Eye-hurting bright colors (the analysis of color in Nervhous)

The other day at the Paka gig, my friend Kudin of Rebel For X asked, “is yellow Nervhous Records’ theme color?”

Shah also said the calendar design reminded him of the Bollok Wok comp. because of the same color, yellow.

It made me realized about all the color themes for Nervhous releases/projects. I admit my favorite colors are Red, Orange and Yellow, as the title suggests. Okay, let’s take a look.


Bollok Wok Vol. 3: I tried using either orange or yellow, and finalized with yellow.

Struck A Nerve Tour campaign: I just wanted to add color, I think I accidentally again, chosen yellow for the campaign.

Senandung Pawer-Kord: We worked as a team to design this one. I think I suggested yellow (again!), and the others agreed.

Always Last ‘Antidotes’: Also yellowish color for the cover, but I wasn’t involve at all in the design part.

Toxictoy ‘Amazingly Realistic Puke!’: Again, it’s yellow colored, but I’m not involved at all in the design part, it was Eman.

Skunkfix ‘The First Two Demos’: It’s bright yellow again. If I’m not mistaken, Emy (the frontman) did the front cover design. I only did the band font design for that release.


The Twosome Takeover: Red, Black, White. I like these colors combination when I was in high school. Black and Red was always a good color combination in my eyes, since I got Metallica’s black album.

Time Is Monkey: Red. No, I’m not involved in the designing at all.

Punkrock Paradox: The color was red-ish brown. But it was designed by Rizie.

Dum Dum Tak ‘Hentikan Penindasan’: The CD color was red, yeah purely for my love of red!

Last Strive ‘Kuasa Kita’: Not my work at all.
