This is going to be our bands first release album and This is the Back of the Cd cover for my band. Since our band F.U.D.G.E have not got much money between them to spend on graphics for the CD cover design, this is why i done most things originally hand drawn or written. Since its supposed to look like a school notepad and hand written by students with bad grades, i done small mistakes on the song titles, which is only eight songs plus a bonus track because this is there first release album in the UK.
This my bands logo for F.U.D.G.E. i use the school theme of the notepad and school writting pen. This connects to their past and how they met before the band was created, The logo shows that they were brought together by school and the band name represents their GCSE grades they finished with. I used the simple idea of school resources like newspaper letters and black and white.
For my Cd advertisement Poster, i was thinking about doing something simple but effective at the same time. I found this image and I like how this magazine poster for 50 cents album has been done. I am going to do the same layout and conventions for my band F.U.D.G.E. the bottom part of the poster im going to increase the text size of the date for the Cd so it stands out to my audience. I like how the artists face covers the entire poster so the audience is aware of what the artist looks like, but instead mine is going to be a entire band so its something i have to think about the layout. The main members of my band would have the most preview the boy and the girl, because the song they are releasing is about Young Love.

This is the Single Cd cover for the Mystery Jets, Young Love the song that me and my group are doing. I like the use of hands for the main image and im thinking about doing my own version for the Cd or Poster. we orginally was going to use hands in the video but this idea didn't happen in the end, so their is still a chance that i can still use this idea on my own.

Digi Packs

DigiPacks include CD and Dvd covers plus a poster. So far i have been researchng for ideas and possible graphics can use for my Dig Packs. I mainley want to use my own images for copyright reasons so im going to do this has much as possible.
I like this idea for font on my covers, maybe the use of newspaper print and different colour text for individual words. Since my band is quite young i want the Cd cover represent them as youth. Also since my band were brought together by music and a school they all went to, im going to do the song titles hand written on to a notebook using pencil and art dawings, so it all connects to their past how they met.
