I began my album cover with thinking about how I wanted to present it. I decided I wanted to go with the ripped up homemade style that other punk artists have utilised in the past. I found a word search book that worked perfect for my idea, I wanted it to look like ripped up newspaper articles and the titles of the word searches were mostly relevant to the situations I was trying to create. For instance I found titles such as “Britain’s favourite”, “red alert” “shady business” and others that made it seem like they might have been from articles about the band.
I then started to print old influential photos that I thought might be relevant, for example a group of punk rockers in a pub in the 70s is on the back of the cover.
i then cut out some letters from the cover of the word search and created a ‘random font’ style title for the song “where is my mind” by the Pixies.
after that I created some paintings of the logo, band title and album name for the front and back of the cover in the same colour scheme as the ransom font at the front.
i am happy with the outcome of my work I think it works well as a album cover and I finished up with the creation I wanted in the beginning.
