Inspired by Music
I do a lot of website design work, but I often find that looking at different mediums can help to fuel my creativity a bit further. I find that looking at product packaging design, physical print design and posters can all help to improve how I look at and work on design for the web, and helps me to come at design decisions from a different angle. Album artwork is one of my favourite things to look at when I need to give my creativity a boost. There are so many different design directions that you can go in when crafting an album cover that it’s refreshing to see how different artists have done it.
I’ve collected some of my favourite examples of stunning, unusual and interesting album artwork to help get you inspired too. Some of these pieces are genuine covers, while others are fan made reimaginings – but in each case they’ve been designed with great care and attention, and each one has been designed to suit the mood and theme of the music.
