Hello again, friends!
For today’s project, I decided to use my slightly dormant band, Hard Candy, as inspiration.
Using real song titles and lyrics from our mostly as-yet-unrecorded EP, I set the text in InDesign using three awesome slab serifs: Acknowledgement (a favorite I’ve used before), Cairo, and Latinia. All are available at DaFont.com.
I drew the Starlight Mint in Photoshop, using a photo reference for the razor on the album cover.
For finishing touches, I decided to set the whole on a background of Tiffany blue, one of my all-time favorite colors. In InDesign, I threw in a couple texture layers using multiply and overlay blending modes. Then, I generated JPEGS for Internet use and slapped together a mock up in Photoshop.
I wanted to keep it simple and brightly colored; all in all, I think it’s rather jolly looking for a couple hours’ work. What do you think?
