Music cover art ∙ Digital promo
One of the cool projects that I’ve had the opportunity to work on during this Covid-19 quarantine was this series of cover art designs for LA singer/musician/poet Sariyah Idan. Between May 1st and August 1st, she released three individual remixes of songs from her strong and deeply personal 2019 full-length, Breaking Shadows.
What I enjoyed most in working on these pieces was the challenge of conveying the vibrational essence of each song while honoring the minimal design aesthetic that the artist requested. Most of the heavy lifting was in choosing the right color combinations and finding simple, elegant typefaces. The process wasn’t as quick or easy as the finished products might suggest, but the three great photos shot by Liz Bretz that you see here provided the perfect springboards to dive into the work.
