    Ahh hello there, it has been quite a while.

    This is an E.P cover I am working on, for a very talented friend.
    Thought I would share it with you guys, get some opinions of what you think.

    From just this cover what would you guess the type/style of music was?
    I'd be interested in the response.

    Take care guys, Harri x

    I like it, I'm almost seeing Elton John in the image :p

    As for the style, I'd say... acoustic guitar?

    Can I ask a serious question?

    Why would you spend lots of time on a quality illustration and then use a font for the text?

    Look closer, each letter is different. If it's a font, it's a font with 3 different versions of the letter "n" in it.

    It really does look like one of the hand drawn fonts then.

    It's alright, seems a bit washed out to be honest. Not gonna attract much attention. And i see no resemblance between image and text, other than that they are both drawn. Looks like a cover for a Folk act. YAWN.

    Hey there,
    interestingly no one has guess the correct music genre.

    the font was the artists picking he wanted a scripty/handwritten type.
    i think it's the font thats edging people over to think it's more acoustic/folk.
    a little misleading but personally i think that's what i like about it.

    The illustration has a trippy feel to it, i'm going something like House/Dance or Electronica.

    If that's one of the genres then i think the font needs to change

    It's Electronica/Noise

    Yeh, thanks I was kinda going for that trippy maybe a little scupturey feel.

    The effect makes sense, but the image of the guy doesn't communicate
    electronic music at all in my opinion.

    I'm seeing the chance to start again and create an image with impact.

    Sorry but that's my 2p's worth. If it where me I'd give it another go.
    If it works for you and the client then that's ok.

    Yeah, ok, I can see your point, but if I have to think of a guy who conveys that,
    it isn't someone like him.

    I think of Royksopp, for example.
