A local signer/songwriter who i am lucky enough to know personally, asked me to design the cover to her first single release and the accompanying promotional material. I was lucky enough to have great base photographs professionally shot to work from that required only minor adjustments to suit the tone of the record. That required around 6 layers of filtering to warm up the image, including isolating Lena, desaturating only the background then recolouring it so that the whole image had the same feel, just different intensities of saturation so she stood out that little bit more. The poster was a breeze after that with just the release party info and logos to add.
