CD cover: Baladas Flamencas

Divucsa

Divucsa is one of the greatest independent music companies on the Spanish market, with more than 30 years of activity in the market and almost 100 releases each year. Divucsa has an extensive catalogue with more than 40.000 songs, including the greatest Spanish music and flamenco portfolio in the world.

They needed a cover for a digital record which will be called “Baladas flamencas”. As may be obvious from the title, the cover needs to combine a flamenco touch with a romantic touch. The content are melodic songs with a strong Spanish root.

Flamenco

Flamenco, in its strictest sense, is a professionalized art-form based on the various folkloric music traditions of Southern Spain. In a wider sense, it refers to these musical traditions which have, themselves been deeply influenced and become blurred with the development of Flamenco over the past two centuries. It includes cante (singing), toque (guitar playing), baile (dance), jaleo (vocalizations), palmas (handclapping) and pitos (finger snapping)

CD cover creation

In our design we wanted to visualize the guitar and dance as key ingrediency of the Flamenco. Then we have embedded a well known characteristic of Spain which has an irresistible attraction for many tourists: sun and sea. As usual, we do not cut and paste just to mix some parts together. We blend, recreate and transform all elements to deliver a unique design with a warm atmosphere that will attract many people. Pay attention to all details, shadow and light that enhances realism and invokes curiosity of the viewer.

Oriol Orfilo was so impressed of our design that he ordered also to redesign their YouTube channel based on the same cover design.

Excellent work, quick and capturing the ideas immediately. Definitely recommended.”
