Cover Art Inspiration: Coldplay
To the left is their debut album for 'Parachutes'. The font is the same, the black background contrasts against the white font; the album seems to be very neat and clean. This helps the yellow globe stand out even more than normal.
The star image of the band is never featured on the album, the audience can infer from this that Coldplay are likely more likely to be concerned with their music opposed to what their star image is represented as.
As this is their first ever album it is easy to see the contrast from the first album to their latest one below.
The use of bright colours and graffiti can be seen as the band trying to get rid of their old star image and use a riskier angle, essentially getting rid of their old plain style for a new and upbeat one. Coldplay have grown with the times through their music and their style and this can be presented in their album cover.
