Album cover & booklet design for Eden Parris


Eden Parris


CD Cover Design + Music Design

I created the Eden Paris cd cover design and booklet for his album titled ‘The Inbreaking’. It was a pleasure working with him on this, while tweaking the artwork, trying out new ideas and experimenting with the layout and typefaces. We’re both really pleased with how it turned out.

Album cover artwork & concept

We wanted to achieve a sense of depth and captivating lighting while enhancing the starry night sky, while the text needed to be subtle and stylish.

For the back cover, I came up with the concept of white light burning through the artwork, which was to help illustrate the album title ‘The Inbreaking’. As a result, this also helped differentiate between the front and back covers, which used the same photo for consistency.

The inside panels of the foldout cd cover were created as one long continuous panel. The design of the open cd cover works particularly well with the cd sat nestled into the same background design.

Image enhancement & retouching

Eden had sourced some fantastic photography for the album cover. With a bit of subtle retouching, it was able to really pop. I retouched the original cover photo, to enhance the stars and to give the upper tree leaves a little more contrast against the night sky. I also strengthened the red glow of the tree trunks to make them even more striking.

The accompanying photos for the booklet, of the artist and forest scenes, were taken by a different photographer. He did a superb job of capturing the lighting and continuing the theme of the cover image. I carried out some image retouching to get these photos to work well with the layout and text overlays. The image editing included cropping them and creating depth of field and blur effects to enhance the lyrics and focal points.
