ARCTIC MONKEYS ALBUM REDESIGN
OBJECTIVERedesign 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 ︎︎︎
I went through each lyric in the album and highlighted those with strong imagery that could guide my photography.
I wanted photos with dramatic lighting to depict the pensive and darker themes in the music. A lot of lyrics involve eyes as well as reflection on the past and future, 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.
