A week or two ago, I had the opportunity to create an album cover for some ex-coworkers that had a band called “Seagull Hazard”. I was very humbled to be asked to complete this project, as I’ve never gotten to design cover art for music before. And even though I was caving in under the pressure of finals, I still took a couple hours to develop the band’s first album cover. The name of the soon to be released record will be “The Android and the Astronaut”.
Fully developed in Adobe Photoshop, with some elements from Illustrator, this design composition includes sci-fi imagery to reflect the theme that the band is looking to go for. I used lots of textures, effects, alignment techniques, and more to fully construct the end result. To a large degree, I think I enjoy the way it turned out. The band seemed to enjoy it a bunch upon showing them the end result. I just hope that I get the chance to create more album covers for bands in the near future.
If you have any feedback or constructive criticism you’d like to give, let me hear it. I’d love to do more of these projects as soon as possible.
