Asking for a friend.

I like the art but maybe try the text being smaller, all in one line, and at the bottom?

It looks repulsive. If that's what you were going for then I guess you succeeded.

Pretty cool.

I agree with these. Do something cooler with the text. The text looks very basic and uninspiring. You don't have to focus on extreme readability because it's mostly about the art.

The text is actually fine, though if it were me I think I'd take it off. The basic look works great, depending on aesthetic and/or how good the music is
see : crystal castles

>>4622
Making people want to listen to the music >= aesthetic/what the music sounds like > genre for cover art personally. So this doesn't do much for me but I may click on it if it were to pop up on my youtube randomly.

Final verdict : decent - good.

 No.4630

>>4629
and how do you make people want to listen to the music genius

 No.4632

>>4630
Is this a serious question? Obviously by making it look good and using intriguing artwork. Using the back of a protein shake bottle for cover art isn't really interesting or would probably make people want to listen, but a picture of a hot girl would.

I agree that something shoukd be done with the text.
Maybe like a shadow or some other effect to make it mesh with the image more

Look at all their releases or press where they do have their name written. They always do something interesting with the font.

Yeah I understood that. I'm was just agreeing it looked bad. There is a lot of reasons he may want some text on it.

That's Interesting in the most minor way. You could do the really do the same thing without the double effect

I saved the gif version of it he posted earlier if anyone would be more inclined to mess with it without the text already there

Ok cracked up something quick just as a demo. I could (and you should) play around with just the text for hours. Don't slap dash the graphic design. It looks simple but there are still a lot of variables and ways to give people a feel for your music before hearing it just as much as the art. (of course I'm just taking a stab in the dark off of what his name and title plus his described genre was)

I'm a pretentious fuck into album art with minimal/no text.

There's something to be said that simple/no text is mysterious, I agree.

>>4643
Do you get that text effect by turning the text into a smart object or whatever then making it a clipping mask and pasting the original onto it?

 No.4647

>>4646
I'm actually on mobile lol. I made a text layer and duplicated it like 3 times and put a different effect on every layer and tweeked a slider until it looked cool.
I'm sure you can do way more with adobe software

First off, thanks for all the replies.
>>4624
The text has always been secondary to the cover art, but I will be messing with it. I always approached the text in a utilitarian fashion of as long as its readable then idc if its a little basic.
>>4634
based and I totally love those kinds of album covers too, but I kinda do want some text for this release.
>>4643
Second one looks awesome as fuck.
