This is the logo for the band that I have created using Adobe Photoshop, this logo will be used on the CD/DVD cover and the website that we create. The colours and font are very conventional of the genre of the band therefore I think this is a suitable logo to use.
1. What do you think about the look of this band?
2. Do you think you would listen to their music?
3. What is your favourite genre of music?
4. Do you think videos are important to a song?
5. Do you watch music videos often?
6. Do you like the focus of a video to be on the artist?
7. Is a band/artists image important to you?
8. What is your favourite music video and why?

The CD cover for Many Things Untold's debut album, Atlantic, is conventional of a metal band.
It uses dark colours for both the font and the background image.
The font is black and quite plain apart for the word 'Untold' wrapping the words 'Many Things' and the gothic underlining.
The image consists of a girl wearing a white dress walking towards the Atlantic ocean.
The scene is rather dark and melancholy representing the sound of the band.
This is the main picture at the top of the bands MySpace page, the band is depicted sat against a graffitied wall.
They all, apart from Toby (vocalist), are dressed in black which is typical of the genre.
the have serious expressions and could not be described as a fun band.
They have the band name at the bottom of the photo in the same font from the album just without the underlining.
it is a simple yet serious layout with a plain font used throughout.
the website and CD cover are quite similar with the use of dark colours and being fairly uncomplicated.
The band through these are represented as being tough.
The font used on both the album and the website is consistent throughout which shows they have a consistent sound and do not incorporate different genres into their music.
The video however is unlike the bands usual look as they perform against a white background. They do stick to the conventions by wearing all black although the video is quite light compared to the bands usual look.
To compare, this is the cover of the album of our chosen bands latest work. Its similar to their fist also. It is noticeably obvious that there is no likeness to these two album covers besides the fact they are both very random. Or maybe the fact they both have their Band names on the cover. This may have some relaxing emotions to it on the cover but the music itself does not seem so relaxed because it is mostly fast paced and heavy.
This album cover is from a band known as Unearth. They are American based and have the same genre of music as our selected band. In the cover they seem to have used grim colours such as a sepia effect with darkened backgrounds. The title is written in a strange font to link with the genre. The man in the photo has no eyes and looks as if he is cracking apart and he is also being dragged back by bloody hands. This is hard to tell if it has any involvement with the songs because in this genre of music most pictures or themes can be random.
