Illustrated Band Covers – Inspirationfeed

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With these images I am looking specifically at illustrated cover art that has been created. From these images I am looking at the different illustrative styles that have been used to create these covers, also from these covers I can see how text has been used if any throughout the covers.

Here is an album cover that has a plain colour background with a contrasting colour of the other alternative images that are positioned onto the shape of a star that has an expression. Here is another example of an album cover that features no text unless it was used to create the star, this is good because it keeps the album cover to look clean and eye-catching, but because there is no text explaining what the name of the band and album are called which can be confusing for the audience.

After looking at this robot album cover it is similar to the illustrative style that I used on the unusual words posters that had been created using simple layers of colour overlapping to create shadow and highlighting on the raised areas, as well edge highlighting. There is a small amount of text used on this cover because it is only at the top right corner, however I believe that is to prevent the targets audience from being pulled away from the bright and contrasting colours of the robot.

This album cover features no text at all which as I’ve mentioned above can be difficult for the audience to see what the band and album are called which doesn’t help when the audience want to download the album or look for it online when they don’t know the name. I like this album because of the use of the black paint in a circular shape surrounding the ¬†sphere. Although the colour palette for this cover is lacking the use of the grey colours and black create an eye-catching focal point for the album cover which is the sphere in the centre which contains the colour.
