Moodboard Creation: The design team curated a mood board that incorporated elements like chess pieces, dancers, and abstract shapes to visually represent the album’s themes of decision-making and life transitions. This mood board served as a reference point for the design direction.
Drafting and Feedback: Several design drafts were created based on the chosen concept. These drafts included variations of color schemes, typography, and imagery. Scott Zartman provided feedback, helping refine the design elements further.
Visual Representation: The final design featured a juxtaposition of a chessboard with scattered chess pieces and dancers in the background. The chess motif symbolized strategic decision-making.
