During a workshop with Jo we used the song by Ralph McTell to create an album cover using the lyrics. 
The constraints were as follows:

  • document size 150mm x 150mm
  • use the provided text
  • use a maximum of 2 typefaces
  • must only use type provided
  • may use photocopier to enlarge or reduce size of type
  • do not use any digital methods to lay out the type
  • use clear grids

I enjoyed working on this brief with constraints and without a computer. The use of grids really did help in creating some successful album covers.
