Junction City CD/Album Cover

Role: Design, Photography

Some music friends asked if they could use one of my photographs for the cover of their upcoming album/CD. That evolved into taking on the design, as well. In a little over a week I'd scouted and shot a rural Texas road to fit the theme, worked in another photo I’d shot, and had artwork ready to go.

All elements together.

This is the shot that originally caught Randy and Heather's eye. This was taken around 2009-2010 from the Pfluger pedestrian bridge, and shows the Lamar bridge over Town Lake (aka Ladybird Lake).

Randy and Heather wanted to include a "Texas road" motif and that wasn't too hard to satisfy. I set out on a Sunday afternoon and faced more clouds than a Texas summer afternoon had a right to throw at me. That let me know to look for shots lined up from a very narrow range of light. Here, the sun is hidden behind the tree in a very careful way.

And here's the whole thing plugged into the CD company template. With all of the weird offsets, I'm amazed it came off without a hitch!
