We have recently finished recording an album and it needs a home! We need an album cover & case designed for digital (front), CD (4 panel digipak case with front/back/spine/space for credits and acknowledgements inside) and Vinyl (front/back) release.
The album is called "Without A Word".
We need an album cover reflective of our indie pop/indie rock aesthetic that is eye catching and (hopefully one day) iconic. We have included a few versions of a photo (girl with finger over mouth) we have that we would like to be used on the cover. Feel free to crop it, change it, colorize it, black & white it, use it as inspiration, etc. We would like it to be the basis for what you create. Here is a link to the .psd files:
We have included a few album covers we really like. We would like something similar. Negative space is pretty chill as well. Don't be afraid of being sparce, although the image we have included may not lend itself to that. Most likely, the simpler, the better. Get creative!
Here are some bands we love. Feel free to channel their aesthetic.
Third Eye Blind
Guided By Voices
Cold War Kids
Here is a link to a few of the songs (unmastered) on the album so you can get a better feel for the style:
