The 100 album art project day 010 — abstract illustration about climate crisis

Updated: Sep 18

Some time ago, I started a project to create 100 music album artwork. Music has always been a huge part of my life, and it only felt natural to start exploring this direction of work more thoroughly.

Digital album design and illustrating with a minimalistic approach


This album design for day ten was created digitally in Procreate on iPad. I am testing a simplified approach to my design process, as I believe there is much expression to be found if we subtract and work with minimal tools.

A vinyl album cover sits on a violet background. The design has a light teal coloured background and a light orange rectangle in the middle. The text "what we care about" is written above the rectangle in handwriting, and there is an abstract drawing in blue coloured pencil on the bottom of the orange rectangle, with movement to the right and a good texture. The whole illustration has a light textured surface, like paper.

Relevant music and climate inspired album art

I let my designs be inspired by the music I have been listening to lately, and this illustration was inspired by the song "Listen to the Kids" by Norwegian musician Selma French. With an abstract approach, the design symbolizes the desperate, faint hope and extreme seriousness of the climate crisis.
