My final Photoshop assignment was to create an album cover. I made one for a made up singer/songwriter, using a monochromatic palette and subtle accent colors to set a relaxed mood. The idea behind the title is that music can take you to another world.

To execute this project, I imported images from Pexels and Unsplash and placed them on different layers. I played around with the Overlay, Luminosity and Linear Dodge blending modes, then lowered the Fill of my base image to achieve the look I wanted. The background image didn’t cover the entire canvas, so I made a copy of it, flipped it horizontally, and snapped it to the edge of the original. The font I used is Shree Devangagari 714, with adjustments made to letter spacing, kerning and anti-aliasing.
