Album Cover Experiment – Art of Noise

Recommended Posts

Here’s a silly thing which I was messing around with today.
There are various things that aren’t quite right but I’m fairly happy with it as a bit of play.
The masks are graphical devices that are used on quite a few “Art Of Noise” album covers.

Hey Garry,

the masks are cool - I think the main thing I'd get more into is the typography in this. You basicly used 4 different styles for 4 lines of text, which really draws the viewers attention away from the main object (masks). For an album cover, I'd go with bigger masks, smaller font sizes and try not to overdo the colour / font type / italic variance too much. :)

Thanks for the feedback.
I tried to get close to the original – up to a point – without knowing what the fonts were.
Apart from the differences in the text, the design – as a whole – is pretty close to what the band used and if they were happy with it then I have no problems with it.
As the cover says, it’s for promotional use only so it’s not meant to be seen by the public but I agree that a ‘proper’ album cover might have to be different.
It looks a bit like this other cover: https://www.discogs.com/Art-Of-Noise-Daft/master/18140)

P.S. The fonts I used were “Linux Libertine G” and “Linux Libertine Display G” (with the ‘of” in “Libre Baskerville”).
