Let Me Take You Down

Album Cover Design

When I compile a CD for my own entertainment, I usually try my hand at designing an attractive cover for it. This particular disc was a compilation of psychedelic-era Beatles rarities and John Lennon demos, so I wanted to create a suitably psychedelic cover.

I found the photo of John via Google Images, though the original photo was quite small and pixelated - an issue I remedied using Photoshop's "grain" filter. In order to divide the image into stripes of varying hues, I inserted a simple clip-art image of rainbow stripes behind John's photo, to which I applied the "overlay" effect. The letters (each from the Arial Black font, though individually stretched to match the width of the "A") also received this effect.
