The idea was to have the name of the album (“BIGGER BETTER LONGER LASTING”) in yellow letters in the center of the cover in front of a pink background. Of course, different shades of the colors as well as some textures are allowed and even desired. Same goes for the use of black and white. We don’t want to limit you too much so if you have an idea that would fit perfectly, just try it, even if it’s another color.
We’d like to have the album title in big letters. Our idea was to have each word in a different size or at least not all in the same size (i.e. the word “bigger” could be bigger than the rest) and to have more than one line. Of course not all letters of a word have to be exactly the same size – feel free to arrange them the way you think it looks cool. Our band name (MARKED WITH LIPSTICK) could be above it in another font and smaller size. But again: If you have a better idea, feel free to try it out – you are the experts, not us ;)
Another idea we had is to put an icon for each song on the album in the background. These don’t have to be too big/apparent. Here are the icons for each of the 9 songs (in no particular order):
- Jester’s cap
- Square academic cap/graduate cap
- Broken heart
- Maple leaf
The most important thing to consider is that we want a very flashy and youthful cover because that’s what suits our music the best.
