This project is an album cover called Astroworld, by Travis Scott. When he was making this album, he was inspired by an abandoned amusement park in Houston.  Scott spoke on the title track of the album: "They tore down AstroWorld to build more apartment space. That's what it's going to sound like, like taking an amusement park away from kids. We want it back. That's why I'm doing it. It took the fun out of the city.” So I wanted to portray  Scott's wish in my design, add color to the abandoned amusement park, and incorporate the amusement park font into my overall design.

该项目是为Travis Scott进行的专辑封面设计与制作,名为Astroworld。Scott最初创作这张专辑时的灵感来自休斯顿一个废弃的游乐园。Scott的专辑序言:“他们拆除了AstroWorld,以建造更多的公寓空间。他们把游乐园从孩子们身边带走,我们想要它回来,这就是我创作这张专辑的原因。”因此,我希望我的设计能从视觉层面极力传达Scott的创作初衷与音乐本质。在封面封底的系列设计中,我选取了与标题Astroworld(太空世界)所相关的太空意象,还有过山车,旋转飞椅,摩天轮等游乐园元素,仔细观看,你会发现所有的插画图形都是由这些太空与游乐园素材中提取元素抽象而成的。在字体方面,我选择了糖果字体,这一切都与游乐园,太空幻想, 童真童趣息息相关。色彩运用与拼贴手法是我此次设计的核心构思所在,我选用了游乐园典型的鲜明而梦幻的色彩渲染于太空元素的抽象图样中,将此以拼贴的形式穿插于黑白氛围的游乐园旧照和眼神颓废的Scott人像之中。黑白与彩色的碰撞,荒芜与童真的交织,正是呼应了Travis Scott的嘻哈风格的永恒主题:在纸迷金醉,内心荒芜与暴力美学之下探索爱与和平。
