How to be a Human Being - Album Redesign

Motion Design, 2021

A redesign of Glass Animals' album, How to be a Human Being, released in 2016. Glass Animals is an indie rock group from England. Their music can be categorised as psychodelic pop, indie pop, indie rock and electronic rock.

Their sophomore album How to be a Human Being is described to be a "rich tapestry of human experience". Each song represents a unique narrator, in an array of situations and perspectives, exhibiting the highs and lows, joys and tragedies, love and sorrows of what it means to be a human being.

My redesign includes a 1:1 typical album design, as well as a 9:16 animated version, inspired by the increasing popularity of album animations in music streaming apps.
