Album Cover Art

- The album cover design establishes the genre of the music
- It establishes the identity of the artist
- It establishes the credibility of the artist and the album itself
- It seeks to attract audience attention through striking imagery
- It acts as a persuasive device drawing audience in
- The cover can be original/inventive/innovative/unique or conventional depending on what is sought
- Album covers use codes and conventions to communicate with the audience

A conventional album cover usually consists of:
