Paramore Album research

Paramore's debut studio album 'All we know is falling' (2005)

second album 'Riot!' design as part of two optional front covers (other design can be seen in another post)

Paramore's single album 'crushcrush crush' from the album Riot!

Paramore's third album 'brand new eyes' (2009)

These are Paramore's previous album designs.
The important factor of these albums is that the design includes a consistent Bright colour which is usually the main focus. In 'all we know is falling', the main focus is the bright red sofa, for riot! it is the orange font and for the single track digipak, it is the black and white contrast but also the bright blue colour in the right, bottom corner. For 'brand new eyes', the bright yellow colour of the butterfly is the focus of the audiences' attention. This consistent use of colour creates an overall style for Paramore albums.

Extra Filming

When editing today, I have realised that there is not enough narrative for my video. Therefore, there are 16 seconds that I need to fill. In order to fill this I plan to film extra footage in order to develop the narrative more.

Digipak analysis Riot! Album

Front cover


Back cover

This is Paramore's second studio album Riot! which was released in 2007. The design of this digipak is consistent throughout, with the basic design for the front cover being the same as the back and the Disk. The font that is used for the text is used for each section of the album design and resembles a scribble. This emphasises the sense of chaos, which reflects the title of the album. It also represents the conventions of the rock genre as it follows a black, white and orange colour scheme, which is used often in media texts of the rock genre (particulalrly Kerrang! magazine, music station and radio). The title is written in different sizes many times on the front cover, excluding the larger, orange coloured font of 'Riot!' which seperates it from the background design, drawing attention to the text. The same style is used for the back of the digipak, where the background consists of the title written many times and the song titles written in the same font with the exception of the colour of the text being orange. The websites which are featured on the back (, and fueled by are also in orange to make them stand out so that the consumer notices this as merchandise. To create a consistent theme, the Riot! design is featured on the disk, this is to identify the style of the album as a whole. A recognisable text style is used for the band name on the left side of the album cover, this is so that the consumer can easily identify the band which has produced the album. The image on the back cover supports this as the consumer instantly recognises the band's consistent style together with the conventions of the rock genre, which the band consistently follows.
