In a world full of doctors and engineers, we need more creative people and have an aesthetic driven in them. To make a product more appealing, we often turn to the marketing team, and they add their magic, and the product shines in the market. Similarly, so many artists worldwide are amazing at what they do, but they have a keen flair for creativity. It’s what drives them to do better. Taking inspiration from art, craft, paintings, abstract arts, etc. help them grow and evolve in their respective field.
Many singers have created unique album cover designs that stand out in the competition and appeal to the audience, regardless of age. If any person, who may not even be a fan of the singer, notices the cover first, they may be drawn to it, this then creates an influence that if they like the cover, then they might like the song too, and hence, millions of copies of this album is sold out.
What are some of the three main tips when creating an album cover design? –
- Understanding the artist and the album –
This is one of the main things always to follow on, understand the overall vibe and the attitude of the artist and album. Try and convey their message into an inspirational artwork design rather than some lose ended story.
- Do some research –
It is important to dig up stuff about the customer, get to know their likes and dislikes, ask them about their aesthetics and their colour preferences, then accordingly design an art piece and always be open to criticism and feedback.
- Think different –
Don’t do the same generic art like every other person; if you have an idea, demonstrate it to them, help them get your ideas, and make magic happen.
Remember, the elements as the album cover should translate the persons’ thoughts.
