I want to get the design for my new full lenght-album ''Sanctuary'' to be released in august. I need the following covered:
4 panel Digipak: [see template attached]
---> Front album cover, front/inside (credit listing), back/inside, back cover w/ one spine, and the physical CD. I will be using the front cover for digital sales as well.
I finally found the word I was looking for to describe what I want for the cover: vintage.
Look at the first picture I uploaded as an example. It has like a vintage filter over it, and the scenery makes you feel the melancholy a lot. Of course, I don't want a pale copy of that album, but it really gives you the feel I am looking for.
You can exploit any idea you have of a Sanctuary and add a vintage/melancholic vibe to it.
I have one idea in my head: I picture an old house or church or garden that was abandoned in nature and plants start to grow on it. This would have the double meaning I want, in the sense that it looks like a place where you can feel like home, but at the same time there is an element of sadness because it was abandoned. If you could do something like this, but with the vintage feel of the Riverside album (first image attached), that would be very close to my vision. There could be a character from afar or not in the scenery.
This is just an idea, if you have a better one, I always like to be surprised!
You can get examples of some of the songs to get the vibe:
Here's the text to add:
[Message to my fans: front/inside]
Sanctuary is place where you can feel safe. I made this album, embracing my ambient guitar roots like never before, in hopes that it will be a place where you can come back to and be comforted, reaching deep into your soul. There is beauty everywhere, even in nostalgia and sadness. Let the atmospheric waves calm your mind and heal your spirit.
I want to thank all my supporters and my viewers on Youtube. I couldn’t have made this album without you. Thank you for following me on this incredible journey.
