After writing and recording a rap to send a message that ‘Content Creators Matter’, the grade 5 students then designed a vinyl record label for their song. They came up with a band name and song title to add to their record label. They were then ready to start designing.
They used the online drawing application called ‘Pixlr Editor’. They spent time learning the tools and what was possible. They looked at other Vinyl Record labels as inspiration for their own label. They were required to think about the style they wanted to achieve in their label. For example, Vintage, Modern,Contemporary, Classic, Retro etc. They were asked to consider colour, layout, typography and images/symbols to achieve the desired style they wanted.
Once they had an idea, they played around with options and possibilities. Take a look at some of the results…..
