I am releasing 8 singles over the next 8 months. I am looking for an album cover design that will accompany the tracks as they are released via my website. These tracks will be my 2nd official release so I see the artwork taking more of a centre stage roll than my name although I would like my name to be clearly legible. I intend to write the single names over the art work at a later stage so if there was a little space to write the names of the tracks that would be great. I am open to any sort of design but lean slightly more in the direction of simplicity and clear but again, no strict rules. I'd prefer if black was not a prominent colour over large sections. I'd like to think my music has matured since releasing my album last year which was slightly dark and melancholy. My new material is more hopeful and not as dark if that helps with the design concept .https://tohne.com/music
What I'm looking for fine tuned:
To clarify. I am looking for a design where the name does not take preference. Tohne can be a side text. (I'll come back to that)
Mainly I was looking for some shape or design in the middle or off to the side. A shape, a gooey ball, whatever takes your fancy. You can be creative here. I put some links up before for ideas. It doesn't necessarily have to be a shape. The idea behind this is that I can use it as a logo to promote the brand. It could go on every single. If I really like it I'll keep it permanently to promote my music. most likely returning to the chosen designer to get different colour variations of the design as I release new music. That the finished design then becomes synonymous with tohne.
The name and unusual shape type logo thing will go on a simple background. I like the simplicity of an empty space hence the picture of the white warehouse on my website. This does not mean that I want pictures of empty warehouses, it's more the simplicity of a picture check out the pic below.
What some of you guys are doing with the name is right on the money. Variations of tohne, a combination of capitals and lower case that really works for me. Check out some of the 3 star and 4 star tohne's . basically, the winning design will be the way I right tohne in the future.
