Album art has come a long way from being just a protective covering for vinyl records. Today, they are a cool means of self-expression and a handy way for an artist or musician to promote their latest work. That's why it's important for any up-and-coming artist or podcaster to come up with an eye-catching design that can pique someone's interest and get them to listen out of curiosity and share out of awe.
Let's face it, hiring a designer to make your art can be expensive. But, with Canva on your side, you can create one yourself easily and cheaply! Canva already has a collection of various album cover layouts, designed by professionals, to choose from and edit. In a few clicks, you'll have your design ready to share to the rest of the world.
You can start by uploading your own image with Canva's drag and drop uploading tool. Or, you can choose from amongst over a million design elements including expertly-shot stock images, illustrations, icons and vectors. Enhance your chosen image with filters like Epic, Drama or Cali. Fine-tune some more by playing around with its brightness, contrast and saturation settings. Make your title memorable by taking advantage of Canva's text tool which comes with over a hundred fonts and includes text holders and layouts with some awesome typography.
Inspiration can strike any time so carry Canva around on your iPhone or iPad for on-the-fly designing. Finally, promote your newest track or podcast episode by sharing it on your Facebook or Twitter profile or download it as an image file.
