Music Design Services for bands or musicians
CD cover design & album artwork
Your album artwork is integral to getting your music noticed, even before people have heard it. It also helps portray your musical creations in the best light and allows listeners to have a visual reference for what they are hearing. I often find myself referring to an album by its cover artwork.
In our digital age, having an album cover design that works equally to promote hard copies of your CDs as well as online is extremely important. Being able to catch people’s attention, in iTunes, Soundcloud or Spotify will help a lot. While having a poorly designed cover will hinder your progress, as people may never bother listening to it, rather than being encouraged to do so by captivating artwork.
I can help with both online and print-based artwork so am ideally suited to provide the complete music design solution.
CD cover design should be high on your list of priorities as a musician or band. This is the point of reference people use to recognise who you are. I am a very visual person and always associate a great album of music with superb cover design. I don’t always remember the album title but always remember the artwork that accompanies it.
When you think about how influential a truly great cd cover is on the success of an album, it just shows how important design is for promoting your music. You worked hard to create the music, now back it up with an iconic design.
Album cover design can utilise many aspects of my design work, whether its illustration or image manipulation to create striking cover art or a superb booklet layout for song lyrics and other useful information about the band. I am passionate about providing meticulous detail with compelling and striking visuals to give you the best possible exposure.
Music website design
As a music web designer, I will create a strong online presence to help your band get noticed. I can provide you with bespoke web design to allow your fans to find out more and share your music with their friends. You will be able to showcase your best tunes online, via your website, to encourage people into seeing your awesome live shows or buy your albums.
Another advantage of having an online presence is being able to keep your fans informed about your gigs or concerts so that they never miss a show.
If you’d like to manage your own online content I can create a stunning and versatile WordPress website for you. Or if you just want a truly unique online presence then I can also create impressive responsive websites using HTML and CSS.
I can also help with any other Creative Music Design Services for bands or musicians, like online advertising for social network pages, banners and web ads. Creating designs or images for your Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages in an enticing way, will attract fans and allow them to share your news and music with all their friends and online networks.
Alongside the social profiles, I can provide all your other online advertising, whether online banners, animated ads or digital cover artwork.
Gig banners, posters & flyers
If you are going to be performing gigs then it’s imperative to let fans know about them. This will allow them to buy tickets and enjoy the experience of seeing you play live.
Having beautifully designed posters or flyers to promote your gigs, or new releases will inform and entice fans to come to your musical events or to buy your new albums.
Having a poster designed for your band or group is a great way to promote yourselves too. Fans will stick the posters up for their friends to see, who will inevitably end up listening to your music too. Bedroom posters for bands always go down a treat, but unless they look awesome, no one will display them.
If you have a striking banner behind you at the venue you are playing, it will reinforce who you are and provide a visual reference to your music, to cement your name into the audience’s minds.
Posters should be designed for maximum impact and be able to portray your message quickly and effectively. Most posters need to be viewed by people passing by so grabbing their attention quickly and drawing them in for a closer look is imperative. A well thought out design will do this for you.
These could be handed out after gigs to make the audience aware of new releases, upcoming concerts or to get them to sign up for updates. Expand your audience with well thought out and creative flyer or leaflet designs.
Having band or artist merchandise is a great way to spread the word about your music. I go to a lot of gigs around Brighton and London and will often buy a t-shirt after a great concert. This allows me to show support for the artists I love, while also helping to spread the word about a particular band or group I’ve seen.
If someone buys one of your shirts they are definitely gonna give you a good review, so it’s one of the best forms of advertising you can do. It’s also a way to make some extra money. The designs have to be captivating though otherwise no one will buy or wear the shirts.
You could also consider getting some badges, lighters, stickers or any other useful items that your fans can keep and use, to remind themselves and others of you.
It’s advertising that could last a lifetime!
Merchandise incorporates any product that carries your logo, website or company slogan. It’s especially useful for products that are kept and used frequently. Some examples are: pens, t-shirts, lighters, carry bags and much more. Be creative, almost anything can be used!
Merchandising works across all sectors of business, captivating design is essential to a successful campaign.
Clothing design is an important aspect of merchandising, it can be an entity in its own right.
Having your company brand or logo on clothing can help advertise your business. People will notice it and remember the name in the future. It’s also great for selling clothing to promote yourself or even for the sheer enjoyment of having a bespoke piece of clothing with an alluring design.
They get something they like while sharing your brand everywhere they take it.
It’s design with legs!
Logo design & branding for the music industry
Having a brand and logo design created will help increase your exposure and create a distinct identity that fans will recognise and love. Promoting yourselves as musicians is very similar to promoting any other business. Although a lot more fun and style can be put into it, making it less rigid and more engaging to your audience.
