10 tons heavy compilation
10 tons heavy is a dubstep compilation. Dubstep is often designs as pushing heavy, as the music itself is very bass heavy. The name comes from this. The font used is heavy set bold and reflects that feeling. Its also rounded and playful that lends a less intimidating feel to the cover than if it was squared or displayed in a different way. The background image is of heavy moving vehicles against a cloudy sky. The whole image is dark and moody. This dark and moody feel is often what dubstep art aims for. The vehicles are another reference to the "heavy" of the title. The imagery is slightly obscured and gives it a slightly abstract feel.
