Journey is a classic, soft rock band. This redesign gives their album, The Essential, a fresh modern appeal. The most essential thing humans need to live is water; therefore, water is incorporated to represent the focus on what is essential. Original photographs of a full moon were used to create an ambience of mystery, searching, or yearning. The cover of the booklet was designed with a full moon dipping into the water. The glow shines on the water creating a path that gives the viewer the feeling of a journey down a path into the moonlight.
