Piece by Piece- an EP Cover Process

This article was posted on Tuesday, 19th February 2013

It has been a long time since I did a cover for a music album or EP. Small bands aren't really doing it anymore, given the advent of many ways of downloading and listening to music online.

Not that I'm complaining- I love iTunes, it makes it so easy to buy music. However, I still love to get the interactive booklets and even plain old PDFs of the album artwork.

My younger brother is a drumming maelstrom, his YouTube channel has many subscribers and many more views. He also writes original pieces, along with our two other brothers, and records and produces them with his friends.

This is his second EP and I created an eight page PDF booklet, included in the download. It was a fun project to work on. I screencasted the whole thing and managed to squash about six hours of video down to under 4 minutes. Suffice to say, it's speeded up and chopped up. You can view the spreads on my new design page.
