Folk albums seem to usually have wide landscapes or a natural looking in the background. Folk is usually seen to be linked with nature so they have a lot of nature in the covers. They can have quite a folky style to them in the fonts but they also have what we see as normal fonts as well. For example the “Green Man” cover has a very Folk like font while the “Folk.” cover has a normal font that you could see anywhere. The colours used for all of them are quite bright giving it a positive view to onlookers. Even the ones that don’t have a photo but just a drawn image look bright even though they don’t have a lot of colours. All of the covers have little writing and but a lot of nature in which will pull in people who like and listen to folk.
Looking at the different posters shows that they all have something in common but try to be different in some way so they can grab the attention of the targeted audience. They also all have something that would interest their audience even if it is a bit different to all the others.
My poster I think personally is quite good because I think the colours go well together and it still has a sense of being natural. It also focuses on the cover star while keeping the text as an important thing as well. I tried to include the rule of thirds and get important info on the top left or/and the place she is looking, as this is where the audience would look first. But if I was able to change something then I would try to make the star look less pixelated. I would also think about how the text would look on top of the background before I chose the background.
