Going to start covering (or in some cases re-covering) some of the albums in my iTunes library as a form of design exercise. As I’ve mentioned in the past I’m quite partial to a sexy tall and skinny sans serif type. Also, designing for a newsprint music magazine and having spent much time working and studying pre-press I’ve taken a liking to halftone patterns which has led me to experimenting with bitmap images and the nice patterns they make. This cover is just a simple mix of those elements. In future I’ll be aiming to try out some new things I normally wouldn’t do!
If you’ve got a soft spot for classic pop, rock, disco, dance, funk and soul go ahead and check out this awesome set by french dj Breakbot here. And why is ol’ Rocky Balboa on the cover you ask? Well, just have a listen and find out!
