“When you Dream” Album Cover


Front of the Album


“When you Dream” is the 11th album by Folk/Acoustic Singer-Songwriter John Langford, who wanted graphic design work for the album cover graphics and information. John did not provide much creative brief other than wanting correlation with the theme of dreaming that carries through the album. It was decided that alongside the album cover, his website would be updated to fit the current theme of his latest album. You can see his website here.



The Process

In an initial meeting, the base requirements for this project were discussed. Several designs were then produced, where we narrowed it down to one final idea. Several more iterations of this were then produced in order to ensure the client was happy with both the aesthetic design and information placed on the CD front, back, and label.

Final Product

The finished design involves a striking image of clouds for the front cover, conveying the theme of dreaming with a stylised version of the album name front and center. This can be used for CD hardcases, CD sleeves, vinyl sleeves, posters, etc. The back of the case and CD label design feature a geometric pattern re-iterating the cover design in an abstract form, furthering the “dream” idea.

You can see more about the album on John’s website (also designed by Langford Creative).

James managed to produce a professional looking album cover using just the theme of the title track “When you Dream” as inspiration! I love how he has produced a theme between my latest album and my website!
