A quick summary of the
DO’s and DON’T’s of design
a production work…
Make sure you DO this:
Stick to 2 clear fonts as a maximum. Make sure they are
appropriate for your genre that you are following and be careful
with the sizing of your fonts.
Think about colours carefully and make sure they fit in with your
genre and pictures. Also stick to 3 colours as a maximum.
Use clear photos that are in focus. Make sure they are in
appropriate shot-size for pane and are appropriate for use.
Remember to use; barcode, date, copyright info, title of
album, artist/s name/s, company logo, website and artist/s
And finally don’t forget to use the rule of third for composition
Make sure you DON’T do
Use unnecessary effects. Don’t go mad using Photoshop
Stretch image to fit panel- if the image isn’t the right size them
Put writing on the artist/s face
Use fonts just because you like them
Too many photos just to fill up spaces, feel the need to have photos
on every panel.
Not following the conventions of your genre
