We are “el estado”, an alternative pop band from Spain. We want to release a vinyl single with two songs and we need a good cover design for it.
Our name “el estado” may sound a little hard to spanish listeners, because one of its meanings is related to “the government” and all political issues. We are very far from this and don’t like the idea of being confused with a sort of political band. Others meanings are related with “status” or “condition”, and are more appropriated for us.
So we think that we need to play with the typography of the words “el estado” in order to transmit a sense of Pop Music feeling. (Not too many colours contrast, please!)
As inspiration, we like the logos like the ATARI one.
But also we would like a cover that transmits a little restlessness or anxiety.
We like simplicity, but also catch the attention of the viewers. Clean and clear designs are welcome!
Included are examples of designs that we like
- the ATARI logo
- cover art for A certain ratio guess who? EP.
- Own design of el estado (failed)
