ARCTIC MONKEYS ALBUM REDESIGN



OBJECTIVE

Redesign a a photo-based cover for the long-playing record (vinyl) of an existing album while still conveying its intended themes and meaning. This project is a redesign for “Favourite Worst Nightmare” by Arctic Monkeys ︎︎︎


MOOD BOARD



BRAINSTORMING

I went through each lyric in the album and highlighted those with strong imagery that could potentially
guide my photography.






SKETCHING




I wanted photos with dramatic lighting to depict the pensive and darker themes in the music. A lot of lyrics involve eyes, so I posed my model in ways that brought attention to his eyes. The bloody nose is in reference to “Do Me A Favour”, where the singer mentions a broken nose.








FINAL ITERATIONS




PHYSICAL VINYL

I went through the process of physically printing my cover and vinyl stickers, and then building up my LP. The final product is photographed below.
