For my CD design, I felt that I had to decide what sounds could be on the compilation first to help me get an idea of the feel that it would have.
I was tossing up as to whether to do a Techno / Punk Rock album with such artists as Breathe Carolina, MGMT and Shiny Toy Guns or an Alternative / Indie soft album. I eventually decided to go with the Alternative / Indie album, and my track list is as follows:
Coin Laundry - Lisa Mitchell
Rabbit Heart (Raise it Up) - Florence and the Machine
A White Demon Love Song - The Killers
Little Lion Man - Mumford & Sons
Ours - The Bravery
Breathe Me - Sia
Shooting the Moon - OK GO
Hey, Soul Sister - Train
Full Moon - The Black Ghosts
Let's Get Lost - Beck and Bat for Lashes
Hide and Seek - Imogen Heap
Hearts a Mess - Gotye
Love Song - Amiel
Once in a Lifetime - Talking Heads
My target market will be for women.
With my final thoughts as to the song list for the album, I felt that the album needed personal touches with soft and comforting colours. I want to have a smilliar effect that the opening credits to the movie Juno have.
So I intend to colage my CD cover with different papers, inks, photographs, computer rendered images and my own hard drawings. I have set myself the challenge of drawing most of the artwork as it is not my greatest strength!
