music's visual power
Elevate your brand and amplify your music’s impact with album and single artwork that showcases your talent and leaves a lasting impression.
Don't settle for
ordinary visuals that don't capture your music's essence
In a world saturated with music releases, it’s essential to make a bold statement that grabs attention instantly.
You need album and single artwork that ignites interest, attracts new listeners, and leaves a lasting impact that lingers far beyond the music itself.
At Small Dog Design, every project is a big project.
With a wealth of experience in the music industry, we have a deep understanding of the power of visual storytelling.
Our designs are tailored to break through the noise and captivate your audience from the first glance.
Your music is an extension of your creative spirit, and we believe your artwork should reflect that.
Our Proven Process
From striking illustrations to innovative typography, we’ve developed a proven process for creating album artwork and single artwork that that embody your brand and engage your audience on a profound level.
To begin, we dive into your project by having you complete a creative brief questionnaire, so we can gain insight into your vision and ideas for the final product.
We'll carefully review your responses and any assets you provide, asking questions for clarity if needed.
Now comes the exciting part. With your assets and ideas in hand, we will let our creativity shine by designing artwork that perfectly matches your needs and brief.
Then we'll refine the design based on your review and feedback.
With the final design in sight, we pay close attention to every detail, carefully polishing it to perfection.
Our team ensures that the resulting files are flawless and ready for both print and online usage.
You'll have everything you need to proudly showcase your music.
We’ve compiled the answers to common questions that musicians have about working with us and creating captivating artwork for their projects.
Every project is different so every quote is, too. Regardless of your budget, we’re committed to making you stand out from the crowd, so request a quote today. When you do, be sure to tell us the kind of work you’re looking for, your timeline, and any other important details about your project.
Our average timeline to deliver the first round of concepts is:
- Single Cover Artwork: One week.
- Album Cover Artwork: Two weeks.
It could be less or more, depending on the scope of your project. We’re not available for rush work, however, so reach out to us to begin the process as soon as you have all your assets ready to go.
We design photo-based album and single artwork, so you will need to provide us high-resolution photos, artwork samples, and colours you want us to consider in the creation of your artwork.
We know from experience that design is a collaboration. Together, we’ll tweak and refine the design through three rounds of revisions to make sure it’s what you’re looking for.
We’ve developed a three-step process that creates amazing results.
Step 1: Discover
Our design process begins with you filling out a creative brief questionnaire to share your vision and ideas. We’ll carefully review your responses and any assets you provide, asking questions for clarity if needed.
Step 2: Design
Now the fun begins! Our skilled team will use your assets and ideas to create artwork that matches your vision. We’ll share initial concepts for your feedback, allowing you to guide us with your comments and direction. We’ll refine and tweak the design through three rounds of revisions until it exceeds your expectations.
Step 3: Deliver
We’re almost there! We’ll polish every detail of the final design to perfection. Our team will ensure that the files are flawless and ready for print and online use.
