For a Maymester music design class, we had to pick a band that we admire and complete any project revolving around the band. I chose to work on a CD cover and insert, since I was not entirely familiar with layouts of large amounts of text. I chose Alabama Shakes because I love their gritty, slightly frenzied sound. Conceptually, I decided to go with a "birds and bees" theme because of their album title "Boys and Girls", and all imagery on the design is a mixture of birds, bees, dandelions, and architectural photography. The insert of the CD is a poster with lyrics on one side and acknowledgements on the back.
