Examining the cover of the debut album by the band Wilga one may get an impression that it’s a sketch drawn by one of the members, designed on the spot during a rehearsal. The authenticity of the design by Katarzyna Berent perhaps makes a good point of departure for creating the young band’s image.
The album cover by Dominik Ostrowski is perhaps the most traditional of all the covers presented on the “30/30” exhibition. The album by Whitewater is illustrated with a black-and-white photograph of a beetle car. The only colour element is the vivid orange title.
The cover by Elena Lola Loli is enchanting in its simplicity. The minimalist use of colours and interesting form – a cello, the album’s central figure, weaved from letters spelling the performers’ name – give a a classic, elegant result. It corresponds well with the genre presented on the record.
The album cover by Mateusz Holak combines the attributes of painters and soldiers in a playful way – a palette and a paintbrush are arranged to resemble the shape of a tank. The album entitled “Pięćdziesiątka” presents excellent Polish musicians reinterpreting songs by the Poznań-based group Malarze i Żołnierze (“Painters and soldiers” in English). The aesthetics relying on pastel colours evokes one of the band’s most famous songs “Po prostu pastelowe” (“Simply pastel”).
The album cover by Grochot depicts a portrait of a woman printed on four telephones arranged in a line, all in shades of grey. The balanced and elegant design perfectly fits the mysterious, melancholic songs included on this compilation album by Lea Lea.
