The representation of this album cover is aimed at young males that like rap music. This artist could be showing his lifestyle or how he dresses. This is proberly 15 and above because of the language involved in some of the songs.
The artist is wearing them clothes because this is what rap artists wear, this is how you can tell what genre it is.
2. We had to make a front and back album cover in photoshop. All conventions must be added. Firsty we had a sheet which tought us what we needed on our albums. Secondly we had to create what our album covers would look like on a template that was made for us. After we had started to begin our photoshop had to take pictures and have someone in the class as your artist on the cover. I had to learn about all the tools on photoshop because I had never used it before. I had to restart my design half way through because I lost all my work.
3. For my cover design I took a picture of one of the other students in my oiclass he was facing the camera with his fists up. He was in a hoddie with the hod up and looking at the camera, This is showing direct address because then he is looking at the customer when he buys the CD. My backgroud is a rough image in london. This is to show the genre of the album is hip hop.
4. I used many skills when I was creating my album cover. Firstly I had to add the background and then change the size of it. Secondly I had to add the image of Ronan and change the capacity to lower because then you can see the background through the image aswell. My title I added a drop shadow so that it would stand out more from the image. Above Ronans head it says who it is, with that text I bended it round so it bends at the top on Ronans head, This also has a drop shadow.
5. On my back cover I used the same image as my front cover, I done less detail on it as the front cover. I had to large the image that I used to stretch it on the back cover. I added a barcode in the bottom corner so people can purchase my album. I added text to tell everyone what the name of my songs where, I turned the capacity down on it so that you can see the background image aswell. I then added the copyright sign aswell so that no one can copy my design or songs.
