The Relicários de São Tolosa Prints Tell A Story Through Abstract Illustrations
The meaning behind this album color is deep. It’s strong. It’s mysterious and enigmatic in a way that is thought-provoking and vague. But at the end of the day, it gets you engaged and that’s exactly the point.
But the deeper meanings of this design wouldn’t matter if it wasn’t for the visual aspects that grab attention initially.
This design is bright, creative and interactive. Using vivid colors, clever imagery and a mix of illustration and photography, this album color is an intriguing and enigmatic design that promotes free-thinking, open-mindedness, and lightness.
The bright pink coloring is instantly eye-catching. You can’t look away from the soft and subtle watercolors, or the way it sits in a broken glass in an abstract and unbelievable way. Similarly, on the back of the color, this bright pink shines again. Only this time, it’s in the form of a photograph.
This album cover came from an actual, real-life image. And the artist behind its creation included this into the design to add a realism and an authenticity to the design.
The bright pink makes you feel happy. It makes you feel enthused. It reminds you of a positive time. And it’s paired with the image of a broken glass which contrasts with those feelings. In place of that lightness, there’s stress and anxiety. There’s a clear discrepancy that causes anxiety within the viewer.
Anxiety isn’t always a good thing, but here it works.
The broken glass shattering is compelling and engaging. It’s not something you see every day. And seeing it in this way, frozen in time, it’s surreal and captivating.
And the way it is drawn is too creative not to get a second glance. The color is bright and determined, and looking at the simple, almost amateur drawings of these glass shards doesn’t seem to fit. Or you don’t want it to. Either way, it sits strong and powerful and unrelenting.
The creative elements of this design in their technical creation grab attention and pull viewers in. And if it weren’t for such compelling colors and illustration, the deeper meaning would be lost.
