This is my final album cover design. I made this using both photoshop and illustrator. In photoshop, i manipulated the image by duplicating my original image that i took and rotating it horizontally and vertically to create repitition. i also used non destructive editing to change the brightness, contrast, and colour balance. i made the background black and white by only putting the adjustment layer above that one layer and not anything else. i wanted a grainy,dark, and gloomy feel with my album cover, so my photo is grainy intentionally as an artistic decision. i went onto illustrator afterwards so that i can add the text, which i made into arches and lowered the opacity.
CONTRAST: the grayscale background contrasts with the coloured circles in order to create emphasis onto the center of the image.
REPETITION: the circles create repetition
ALIGNMENT: the pattern is aligned in the center of the photo
PROXIMITY: the circles are all close to each other
