Abstract (summary)
For this Typography II project, an album cover for the band Nature Of was designed. The main idea behind the choices in the design of the album was to represent how the music conveyed a desire to find balance and to find a way to feel alright. The colours, and the way the papers interact together provide a laid back feeling and a good sense of contrast, which supports the main idea of finding balance. As you go further into the record, the text from the dictionary becomes more and more unreadable, and you have to find different ways to read it that are more unusual, kind of like how in the music things seem more difficult to understand the more they are kept inside. The different types of papers used to create each piece are somewhat like puzzle pieces, with some being more of a rough texture, some being ripped up or missing parts of the page, which once again supports the theme of struggling to find balance.
