Wk 10: Five Finished Front Covers

This week saw the competition of all the front covers with finalization of the T-Bone Walker and Robert Johnson album art. After the small group crit on Monday I was pushed to look further into the typographic treatment of the artist names. The old type stood out and dominated the imagery because of its bold weight and deep blackness. In response to this I picked a lighter, extended typeface and made it the back layer of the scans. This softened the blackness and made it appear more like it was part of the imagery. 


  1. i'd push the contrast of the artist name in the 3rd and 5th cover. it gets pretty lost.

    1. These are from before I talked to you at the end of class yesterday. Already did it as per your advice! :)
