Album Cover Design

For this project I was asked by the band Pyroclastic Wave to design the cover of their first studio recorded EP, named "Miss Faded Glory". Pyroclastic Wave is a young band started by five friends from school. Their style is characterised by gloomy guitar riffs, dreamy saxophone tunes and mysterious lyrics. My task was to capture these characteristics into an eye-catching album cover.

I used the sober and hard color-combination of red, black and white to represent the gerne they are playing. For the illustration itself I was inspired by one of their lyrics: "You're like a tree that grows into my head, denying the fact that the forest is dead". All these elements result into a mysterious cover that invites the viewer to pick the cd up and give it a listen.
