About This Class


Welcome to the Album Cover Design Course! This course is for artists and designers who would like to expand their skills creating album covers for music clients. I have been designing album art for over 15 years and have toured the world with my husband who is a rock artist. Over the years I have learned some key things about designing for music, and in the this course I am sharing some powerful tips. 

There will be an Album Cover Design Challenge at the end of the course, with a PDF Album Cover Design Checklist for your convenience and review.

In this course you will learn:

- pricing, invoicing and taking deposit

- how to connect with your music clients and learn more about them so you are working in the right direction creatively.

- how to research covers of the past and present so you can identify reference material

- sketch phase: using your research to produce unique and powerful ideas

- how to create a solid mock up sample and send to your client

- how to handle client feedback

- how to properly name and submit final art files to your client

Looking forward to having you join this course and learn how to create powerful, memorable and effective album covers.
