Cover research for Digi-packshttp://www.media.514blog.com/mia-maya-album-cover-590x590.jpgM.I.A is compared to Rihanna, they have similar music and take the same risks including their music videos and their lyrics. This album cover is very detailed, it includes a number of different designed rammed into one picture, and it can be described as plain as it doesnt include a lot of writing. There is a picture of the artist behind the artwork, then there is a bar which seems to be from a YouTube video, it has been dragged to create an effect and then lastly it has the artists name in gold bars that create her name, then there is the album name which is smaller than the artist name which seems to be like a message from an IPhone. This album cover would be ideal to create as Rihannas artwork is very wacky and this is the same, we can take a picture of the artist and add a repeated designed to the front where you can only see her eyes, then we can have the name of the artist Rihanna in big bold letters which therefore means the name of the album will be smaller and more simple. This can also be difficult to make because it can be hard to find a design that is like the one used in this artwork, unless we design this, it will be hard to find the design. This design has been designed to relate to the lyrics of each song which is on her album, this is a good way to market and attract people due to the fact that people know what to expect in the album.Amy Winehouse Back to BlackAmy Winehouse is similar to Rihanna, however she is British. Her album is very elegant as it has a black background and white writing, it also has the singer in what seems to look like a bath tub with her trademark hair and simple makeup on, this shows the simplicity of the cover, we may decide to use this compared to others due to the fact that it has a simple black background, we will then add a picture of Rihanna and then her name on the top and the name of the album. http://fuzznut.net/images/covers/gwen-stefani-the-sweet-escape.jpgGwen Stafani is an American singer that Rihanna has been compared to for her unique style as well as the style and design of her music videos. This album design is a similar idea of what we want, for example we want Rihanna to be on the front cover, with a lot of makeup on to have a sexual response to the public, the drawback of this album cover is that it is hard to see what the album is called from a long distance as it has been written in white, it also has in italic writing who is featured on the album which is extremely hard to read, this makes it difficult to sell due to the fact that people may not be attracted to it at a first glance.
http://www.metropolis-group.co.uk/_images/adele_21.jpgAdele is also a British singer that has an extremely strong voice, she is compared to Rihanna in terms of her success of mainstream and being number one for over two months, this artwork is the most simplest out of all I have researched, it has the singer looking down to create a sudden sympathetic approach to the audience, this only states the singers name and the album name which is just a two digit number, it is in white which is also very simple. The fact that it is a black and white picture almost makes it seem like a 70s album cover, this is because then there were very simple cd covers.
Back of digi-pack:adele albumThis is the back of Adeles album called 19, as you can see it is extremely simple, it only includes a small amount of her face, and also the track list which looks like it has been handwritten, it has used no modern technology to show a strong detailed design, we may decide to have a plain back due to the fact that we have decided to have a very detailed front cover for the cd case.
This is Jessie Js album, the back of it has all of the tracks that are included, this is also extremely simple with no effects or designs, all it has it black writing and a white background.
