I really enjoy Eric Sena's style on all of his imaginary albums in Albums Without Sound
. I also think the whole process that takes place in order to make these is so unique – a great excuse to get creative. While it was hard for me to pick a favorite album cover, I did manage to find one I really liked:
When it comes to design, I'm what you might call a "geometric minimalist" – a term I just invented. I really like shapes, lines, patterns, small details, curves...you get the idea. First of all, I think the colors in this cover are spot on. Complimentary colors (yellow and blue) obviously work really well together, so I really love how the artist chose to match these colors together (I don't know if he altered the image or not, but either way they work really well).
The typeface is also very interesting. I love unconventional fonts, but really don't like when they're tacky, hard to read, and unoriginal. This font is exactly the opposite: the triangles being used to make up the letters end up forming an intricate, interesting pattern to look at, the words are not hard to read, and the transparency of the letters makes them look light, pleasant and almost fragile. The triangles also work well with the large yellow one , and the smaller one reflecting in. I really love the pattern inside the large yellow triangle – it reminds me of a corner of a building in Chicago that I really like.
I could definitely see this as a working album cover. It's pleasant to look at and beautifully simple, and I even think the artist name and album name sound completely legitimate. The relationship between the two also works really well, especially since "Yvonne Rudelatt" is an actual name that could definitely be an artist's name.
Great cover filled with shapes, lines, and nice, complimentary colors; the perfect recipe for a perfect design.
