The Carpenters

The Carpenters ___ The project requires to design a series of conceptual covers for albums, this is a series of reinvention albums of The Carpenters. The idea of the reinvention is about The Carpenters taking a time travel from the past to today. ... The design contains two different time periods which are hand done sketches to interpret tradition and digital illustration in order to express the contemporary motion. Each design of the cover is according to The Carpenters’s different songs. The three conceptual names were inspired by their three songs, and the lyrics were taken to develop the content of the design. 1. “ Yesterday once more”- when I was young I’d listen to the radio, waitin’ for my favourite songs 2. “ Close to you” – Why do birds suddenly appear every time you are near 3. “ Top of the world” – I’m on the top of the world lookin’ down on creation The Sketches are according to these lyrics and each cover applies one sketch of interpreted lyric. Additionally, the cover is designed for a post status, which is trying to lead people to imagine that The Carpenters are sharing their artwork with their friends and fans on a social media. ___ The three covers are sequenced together, that creates a love story. The first cover conveys a young girl misses her secret crush while listening to Carpenters’s music. The second cover expresses she feels shy when she encounters him. The third cover shows they fall in love together at the end. In addition, there are some numbers on the back covers to present The Carpenters’s cover song’s (also the conceptual name) publication year, their best album sale volume and their fan amount.
