How many albums have you downloaded in the streaming platforms or bought due to their alluring cover art?
That was my case with Frank Ocean’s album “BLOND”, I’ve found myself downloading the album just because of its cover, but after listening to it with a clear mind I do felt in love.
The first Album Cover was created by the artistic director and graphic designer at Columbia Records, ALEX STEINWEISS in 1939.
An album cover is the story telling of a whole album, and art is a vital space to grab attention. An album that will work in our era should have a great aesthetic cover art that includes a great choice of colors, wearing something interesting and a good posing, so that will grab our attention.
