Analysis of album covers
Before i begin to develop my art work i thought it would be a good idea to explore the conventions of the typical album cover.
When looking at these it became clear that they all have at least three things in common:
1. Only 2 fonts/sizes were used
2. Only 1 image on the front of the album cover
3. Only 2 dominant colours
The Theory of a Deadman cover varied in style as both the Good Charlotte and Nickelback covers were clearer images. However this is was the style they were going for.
From looking at this i think i will stay with these conventions.
