Creative Process

The creative process is the most important part of any good project. It allows a designer to be specific, creative, and continue to produce meaningful work.

Project Goal

The goal for this project was to redesign an album cover for a music artist. I chose the redesign Lauv’s album cover for ~how i’m feeling~. The original album cover is shown below.

Original Album Cover


The first part of this project involved creating moodboards to organize my ideas. After listening the album again, I designed three different moodboards. The first is a colorful but darker theme. The second is bright, colorblock, and cheery. The third is a solemn, blue, shiny theme. I ultimately chose the second option to make my design.

Sketches & Thumbnails
