Album Cover: Departure

In a nutshell

This cover was created for my dear friend and fellow student Mark Malyshev.
His recent album, Departure, is a presentation of his most outstanding works.
Most of Mark’s interest lies in composing soundtracks for games and films.



Design approach

When I approached the design, I wasn’t exactly sure where I’m heading.
It was rather hard to find the pattern to work with – Mark’s compositions sounded way too diverse. Eventually I’ve visualized waves, as every compositions seemed to change its’ mood all of a sudden.
Seeing that the album was called Departure and there were 12 tracks, I decided to use clock instead of numbers to list the tracks, to emphasize the “time” element of the album.




Put on your headset!

Please enjoy the album!
