How to Hire an Artist for Your Album Cover

Getting your album artwork just right is harder than you think. You need something distinctive and compelling, which also shows off your music style perfectly. Only a talented album cover artist can pull this off. When hiring an artist for your album cover design, look for someone with past experience doing album artwork, with good communication skills, and who’s willing to get to know you and your music style a bit before they start designing.

FAQs

Who designs album cover art?

Artists who have studied fine arts or graphic design are good candidates for album cover designers. Although, becoming a talented music cover art designer doesn’t necessarily require a degree. The most important qualification an album cover designer needs is a thorough understanding of your brand identity and some experience with digital artwork tools.

When hiring an artist to create your music artwork, look for the following skills:

  • A portfolio with samples similar to your vision
  • Good communication and able to translate your ideas into design
  • Willing to work with you extensively to shape the concept of your cover art
  • Experience using digital artwork tools such as Adobe Spark
  • Offers several revisions of the artwork to get it just right
What size is a CD cover design?

The recommended image size for most digital music platforms is 3000 x 3000px, with a resolution of 300dpi. At the minimum, you can get away with 1600 x 1600px and 72dpi. It’s also best to save the design as a JPEG file because not all platforms accept PNG files. Also, use RGB color mode and not CMYK.

An experienced album artwork designer should understand these basic standards. However, you should let your cover artists know the image guidelines of each platform you wish to publish your song on.

How can I get custom album covers?

To get a custom album cover, you’ll need to hire a qualified CD cover artist. By working with an experienced artist, you’ll be able to get cover art that is completely unique to your release and brand identity as a musician. You shouldn’t underestimate the importance of having a unique album cover design. If your CD cover art doesn’t stand out from other musicians, listeners will be less drawn to your album.

Working with an album artwork freelancer is the best way to get artwork fully customized to your brand.

How do you come up with mixtape cover art?

Your album cover design is often the first impression listeners get of your song. It’s the image they’ll associate with your music, so it has to be good. You want album art that grabs attention and shows off your style. Creating effective artwork for your album, single, or mixtape isn’t intuitive so having a professional artist help you is a good choice. When your album cover designer is creating your music artwork, they’ll typically stick to some of the following best practices:

  • Creating 100% original work (no copyrighted images)
  • Matching the artwork to your music and brand identity
  • Developing album artwork that still looks great at a reduced size
  • Using contrast properly so the design is coherent
  • Making text readable with a simpler font
Do singles have cover art?

For every new release, you should have a unique covert art – including singles. The artwork for your single can resemble your album cover, using the same style and font but different colors, for example. Or you can have single cover art that’s completely different. Either way, you should have unique music artwork so that people can easily view and identify all your releases.

How do I find an artist for singles cover art?

Artists who design album covers are qualified to do singles cover art as well. If you already have a cover design for the album, you should share it with your artist so they can coordinate artwork for the single.

What makes single cover art good?

Single cover art should have a distinct look that helps it stand out – not only from other musicians but also from the rest of your discography. You want the artwork to tell your story and spark listeners’ curiosity about your track. Ultimately, single cover art should promise a unique experience, making it as distinct as your song.

A talented album cover artist will use images, photographs, illustrations, and other design elements to tell that story. They should have a solid grasp on what your track aims to communicate, and capture that message with an appropriate single cover design.

How much does an album cover cost?

When you hire a freelancer to do your album artwork, you’re paying for their expertise. Rates vary greatly by artist, depending on their skills and experience, and on specific deliverables. If you want your album artwork immediately, you may have to pay a rush fee. If you want multiple rounds of revisions beyond what the artist typically offers, that may also cost you more. The cost of an album cover depends also on your budget and how much you’re willing to invest in your song, mixtape, or album.
