In this series of lessons, we'll focus on designing album artwork in Photoshop. We'll begin by learning about two popular packaging designs for CDs. After learning a little about our client, we'll begin designing the front cover of a CD insert in Photoshop. While working on the front cover, we'll learn how we can incorporate various other elements into our design, including a vector logo and textures. Next, we'll move on and begin to create the back cover of our insert, taking into account the lyrics that will appear on top of it. Finally, we'll move over to InDesign to create the layout of our insert. Here we'll learn about several features, including paragraph styles and character styles that will make the process of completing our design more efficient.
