VOTE FOR ME!!! Secret 7″ Vinyl Competition: Friday I’m In Love – The Cure

I’ve designed a sleeve for a vinyl edition of The Cure’s “Friday I’m In Love” in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust.

The competition asked us to design a 7″ vinyl sleeve to interpret the song. The winners (to see how to help me out, see below) will be displayed alongside 700 unique vinyl sleeves displayed in Idea Generation Gallery in London in the week leading up to Record Store Day 2012. On that day, each of the vinyls at the gallery will be available to purchase with all of the profits going to Teenage Cancer Trust.

“I don’t care if Monday’s blue
Tuesday’s gray and Wednesday too
Thursday I don’t care about you
It’s Friday, I’m in love

Monday you can fall apart
Tuesday, Wednesday break my heart
Oh, Thursday doesn’t even start
It’s Friday I’m in love

Saturday, wait
And Sunday always comes too late
But Friday, never hesitate…

I don’t care if Mondays black
Tuesday, Wednesday – heart attack
Thursday, never looking back
It’s Friday, I’m in love

Monday, you can hold your head
Tuesday, Wednesday stay in bed
Or Thursday – watch the walls instead
It’s Friday, I’m in love

Saturday, wait
And Sunday always comes too late
But Friday, never hesitate…

Dressed up to the eyes
It’s a wonderful surprise
To see your shoes and your spirits rise
Throwing out your frown
And just smiling at the sound
And as sleek as a sheik
Spinning round and round
Always take a big bite
It’s such a gorgeous sight
To see you eat in the middle of the night
You can never get enough
Enough of this stuff
It’s Friday, I’m in love

I don’t care if Monday’s blue
Tuesday’s gray and Wednesday too
Thursday I don’t care about you
It’s Friday, I’m in love

Monday you can fall apart
Tuesday, Wednesday break my heart
Thursday doesn’t even start
It’s Friday I’m in love”

Here is my thought process that lead me to my final vinyl design:

I designed one cover that I thought I was happy with but when I put it all together I knew it wasn’t quite what I wanted:

this was the drawing ^ and this the final design:

It wasn’t quite what I wanted so I went back to “the drawing board” and came up with this:

Original drawing ^

Play around edit 1 ^

Final design ^

YOU can make sure that this design becomes one of the designs to be printed into a real piece of vinyl art! And I will love you forever and ever and ever and ever if you do and will send you virtual hugs everyday! Also, if you have twitter and Facebook you can vote twice, once through twitter and once through Facebook, so if you can please please please vote twice!!!!

Please go and VOTE FOR ME!!! Pretty please with a cherry on top :P

Thank you :)

Chloe out.
