Hitesh Hirji Cover research for Digi-packsM.I.A is compared to Rihanna, they have similar music and take the same risks includingtheir music videos and their lyrics. This album cover is very detailed, it includes a number ofdifferent designed rammed into one picture, and it can be described as plain as it doesn’tinclude a lot of writing. There is a picture of the artist behind the artwork, then there is a barwhich seems to be from a YouTube video, it has been dragged to create an effect and thenlastly it has the artists name in gold bars that create her name, then there is the album namewhich is smaller than the artist name which seems to be like a message from an IPhone. Thisalbum cover would be ideal to create as Rihanna’s artwork is very wacky and this is thesame, we can take a picture of the artist and add a repeated designed to the front where youcan only see her eyes, then we can have the name of the artist ‘Rihanna’ in big bold letterswhich therefore means the name of the album will be smaller and more simple. This can alsobe difficult to make because it can be hard to find a design that is like the one used in thisartwork, unless we design this, it will be hard to find the design. This design has beendesigned to relate to the lyrics of each song which is on her album, this is a good way tomarket and attract people due to the fact that people know what to expect in the album.
Hitesh Hirji Amy Winehouse is similar to Rihanna, howevershe is British. Her album is very elegant as it has a black background and white writing, italso has the singer in what seems to look like a bath tub with her trademark hair and simplemakeup on, this shows the simplicity of the cover, we may decide to use this compared toothers due to the fact that it has a simple black background, we will then add a picture ofRihanna and then her name on the top and the name of the album.Gwen Stafani is an American singer that Rihanna has been compared to for her unique styleas well as the style and design of her music videos. This album design is a similar idea ofwhat we want, for example we want Rihanna to be on the front cover, with a lot of makeupon to have a sexual response to the public, the drawback of this album cover is that it is hardto see what the album is called from a long distance as it has been written in white, it also hasin italic writing who is featured on the album which is extremely hard to read, this makes itdifficult to sell due to the fact that people may not be attracted to it at a first glance.
Hitesh Hirji Adele is also a British singer that has anextremely strong voice, she is compared to Rihanna in terms of her success of mainstreamand being number one for over two months, this artwork is the most simplest out of all I haveresearched, it has the singer looking down to create a sudden sympathetic approach to theaudience, this only states the singers name and the album name which is just a two digitnumber, it is in white which is also very simple. The fact that it is a black and white picturealmost makes it seem like a 70’s album cover, this is because then there were very simple cdcovers.Back of digi-pack: This is the back of Adele’s album called 19,as you can see it is extremely simple, it only includes a small amount of her face, and also thetrack list which looks like it has been handwritten, it has used no modern technology to showa strong detailed design, we may decide to have a plain back due to the fact that we havedecided to have a very detailed front cover for the cd case.
Hitesh Hirji This is Jessie J’s album, the back of it has all of the tracks that are included, this isalso extremely simple with no effects or designs, all it has it black writing and a whitebackground.
