What Makes an Iconic Album Cover

If you are a music producer, you know that your first album needs to be carefully designed. Album covers are the most valuable part of these endeavors and sometimes influence people to buy them before listening to the songs. There is no other way to attract a customer's sight but to present him a cover that meets both aesthetic and information standards.

The most iconic album covers are the ones that have been engraved to our minds for years after the initial touch. That is why some bands and artists are more successful than others since people's minds can combine their success with a certain cover's originality. Let's now check which are the most crucial factors that can make an album cover iconic for years and generations to come:

1-Pick the Right Colors
Music producers should carefully pick the colors they want to have on their album cover. The colors represent a great intellectual message for the audience, either warm or cold. It gives them the chance to know whether the artist feels like talking to people's hearts and souls. Those selected to have red color on their album cover show passion and anxiety. Others who choose blue and green show serenity and self-control. Each artist has something to say to his audience and should pick the album colors with extreme care.

2-Check the Fonts
Making an iconic album cover doesn't mean simply write the title and your name on it. You have to be creative to keep your fans attached to your album and engaged to your music type. The fonts are critical to leaving it to random luck. That is why music creators and artists have meetings and consensus to decide the best letters and fonts to use after coming up with a catchy title for their album. People need to read it easily and engrave it into their minds. Every title with the right font size can be eligible for a Grammy award. If you have the best graphics, you can be sure that your audience will be satisfied and wait for your next album.

3-Be Creative on Images
Lately, we have seen many album covers to include real-life images. Some others have imaginary scenes with nothing to do with the actual world. The most impressive images are there to give the audience food for thought. Some marketers also suggest that album makers imprint images that have nothing to do with the particular song characters included in the album. That is an old marketing trick giving the audience another incentive to start listening to the songs. Another way to pick the right controversial images for your album cover would be to insult the typical way of doing things. Every person would like to buy an album that protests about something, and you should be aware of it if you want to influence more people with your music and album.

4-Mind For The Small Details
Other small details can make your album cover desired by people worldwide. First, you need to know the type of paper (or plastic) you will use. Most of the album covers are made from hard carton paper with nothing engraved on it. If you engrave the fonts and give your album cover a touch for everyone can sell better than anything else. Another small detail would be the tracklist and how you rank it on the cover's rear part. The musicians that accompany you should also be mentioned there.

The album cover remains the most incredible marketing tool for music producers. You can define each album's success by merely looking at the album cover. If you can redesign it, you may earn a lot and get more experience for the next album.
