Lazy Rave

Illustrated cover art for singles. Band logo design

Redesign concept for Lazy Rave’s band logo and creating a series of illustrated cover artworks. The emphasis on bright, saturated colour and trippy, psychedelic visuals reflect the essence of the band’s energy, lyrics and love of raver culture.

Using vibrant, intense colours make the artwork eye-catching and visually striking. These colours are a nod to the energy and dynamism of electronic music and raver culture.

A head or character at the centre of each cover artwork acts as a focal point, adding a sense of intrigue. The floating element could symbolise the fluid, transcendent quality of the music.

Using a flat, graphic background colour provides a clean and modern aesthetic, ensuring the focus remains on the central illustration.

Obscuring the band’s logo in each artwork creates an air of mystery and curiosity. Given that music is primarily consumed on streaming platforms with accompanying text and metadata, obscuring the logo won’t hinder recognition while enhancing the artistic appeal.

This design treatment effectively combines elements from Lazy Rave’s lyrics and love of raver culture iconography, resulting in a unique, visually captivating series of cover artworks. It’s a great approach for capturing the band’s unique identity and attracting their target audience in the electronic music scene.
