Album Artwork FONT

Today to help me in preparation to create my album artwork I have decided to do some research into fonts. I wanted to find a font the suited with the image of Ellie and conveyed the style of her music. I will post the results of research later.

Research Into Album Artwork

To find out different ways of making my album stand out from others, I decided to go to HMV, a high street retailer of electrical entertainment goods. At HMV I looked at all the different albums on the shelf so that I would have some idea of the surroundings in which my final album design will sit in. I took some pictures, so that I can analyse which albums stood out and why. Here are the pictures:

From this research I can tell that if the album artwork is of a higher contrast with bolder colours they tend to stand out more. Although bright and bold colours will help to grab the attention of consumers, it may not be in keeping with our artists style or image, so in my designs I am going to try and incorporate both the element of high contrasts while still remaining true to my artists image.
