PHOTO DESIGN 2
Worked with an existing album to gain experience in combining photography and typography, with packaging and design. The final design enhances the movement of the figure in the water by incorporating type manipulation into the composition.
In search of inspiration I conducted a short interview with Anthony Foti, former leader of the band Saint Light.
Who writes the lyrics to the songs?
I, (Anthony Foti) write the lyrics to the songs.
What is your main source(s) of inspiration?
Life in general. This record was about loss, and learning to let go of stuff.
What fonts do you use and why?
I honestly have no clue what typeface I used. I wanted things to feel heavy, overbearing, and kind of brooding.
Do your lyrics influence your cover art?
The lyrics definitely influenced the art, I wanted something that depicted submission to things that are bigger than ourselves, I wanted it to feel kind of bleak but still interesting.
If you could compare yourself to another artist who would it be?
Manchester Orchestra or Colour Revolt.
A collection of inspirational imagery that helped establish tone, mood, and composition for the photography.
Multiple explorations of typography and photo composition that led to the final layout below.
