Now that you’ve written and recorded your killer track and are ready to share it with the rest of the world, you’re going to need killer artwork to go along with it.
It’s a moment that arrives for most self-releasing musicians. You’re ready, but don’t have the money or time to wait and you don’t really have a clue how to use fancy artwork programs like Photoshop, so now what?
We think we’ve found you a solution, a brand new app for iPhone called TAD. By using TAD, bands and artists alike can create high-quality artwork in minutes and what’s more, it’s really easy to use.
The app’s inventor Lee Jones, who is an independent recording musician and producer himself, had the a-ha moment whilst looking to solve this very same problem for himself.
Lee said: “I came up with the idea because I needed a solution and couldn’t find it. The simplicity really does cater to the singer/band/producer who isn’t that adept at graphic design. Basically it’s made by musicians for musicians.”
TAD, which was only launched on December 1st, has already been featured on sites like Producthunt, Hypebot, CD Baby and Diskmakers.
Beth Deady of MGM is quoted as saying, “It’s low-cost and easy to use, allowing artists to spend more time and money on what matters most… the music.”
Some TAD Features include the use of transparency to add your own logo to your artwork;
exporting at the tailored and requisite resolution for your platform–i.e. 3000 x 3000 px for iTunes and Spotify; templates based on the best album sleeves to assist in quality design;
A library of art elements to allow enormous range of design options; and unlimited exports with no watermark.
This sounds like a great option. If you are interested, you can check it out and download TAD at the app store here.
