This post consists of research I conducted for a project in my graphic design class.
The assignment is to design a book cover with the title “Primordial Chicken Live.” The story is the student’s original plot.
My story is about two classical music students in their third year in University, one male and one female. The story will be told in the male student’s point of view, but will primarily be about the girl, because she will be the catalyst for a great change in his life.

I think this photo expresses music well, because it expresses it in flowing and dynamic forms.
I was really inspired by the black and white patterns of the keyboard and the lines on the music sheets. I find the straight lines and organized design very attractive.
Musical Typography (Related):
There is a lot of movement, a lot of intricate details, and is very delicate. There is a balance between straight bold lines and delicate curves.
Music Book Covers (Direct):
After the preliminary compositions, I decided to continue refining the cover that had an image of the main character’s face on it, since the class seemed to like it.
I researched more about the power of eye contact, and book/CD covers that utilized eye contact.
