CD Cover Gallery

During our time doing design we have done a lot of CD covers. We always have favorites and we decided to post a little gallery of our favorite designs. Some of these projects just had a funny story, some had a great piece of artwork, and some were just memorable. So here are a few of our favorite album covers we have done. If you hover over a CD cover you can see the story of that CD cover and read about our experience with that project.

This band was a awesome hip-hop crossover band that uses melodic piano, with groove beats and a live DJ over the top scratching to create a super trendy mix of amazing original tunes. This band wanted something hip-hop and street, but very artsy, and we came up with this design. They were super stoked about it.

This project was a really cool one. This band is a super cool Christian rock / electronic act, that does originals. They don't do your normal worship music, they sound surprisingly refreshing and are definitely catchy with their melodies. They wanted something artistic that incorporated the cross, but it needed to have a alternative feel to it as well. When they saw what we came up with they were rally happy with the design.

This band is a electronic hip-hop act. They do a cross of pop and electronic music with hip-hop influences. This band came to us with the concept that they wanted to see. They didn't know how to put together the artwork in a way they liked but we managed to put something really nice together for them. They loved the design so much they ended up having us do their tour posters, shirts, and merch as well.

This band was a super heavy metal band. they didn't really know what they wanted for artwork other than something that felt "heavy". They wanted something kind of grimy and brooding, so we put together a few different designs and they ended up really liking this one.

This Ska Pop rock band was a great project. They are an awesome group of players that really wanted something kind of classy. They all dress up really nice for their concerts so we went with the classy theme and got them dressed to the 9's with this album design.

This alternative band was a indy alt rock act that was formed with a power trio. They had heavy bass riffs and the singer was all about tech. Most of their tunes were about technology in some way or another. They wanted something classic for a indy band but also kind of alternative. So we went with the old stand-by singers face and words. They ended up loving it.

This country western band came to us with a simple concept to have some road to nowhere and the album title. We kicked it up a little with some fancy text work and made this album cover for them. They loved it so much they said they are planning on coming back to us for their next album cover.

This band was a real surprise project to use. They are a super heavy metal Christian band. They sing about revelations and the bible, and it sounds as terrifying as you can imagine screaming with distorted guitars would. They are real Christians and they wanted something dark, but with light breaking through, we put our heads together and came up with this design. They ended up being really happy with the results.

This band was a electronic industrial act. They pay modular synths and have a really cool and out there sound. Definitely not a mainstream sound by any means. They came to us looking for something a bit weird, they wanted something kind of out there and bizarre. We took a few tries at it and finally we ended up coming up with something they absolutely were floored with.

This alternative pop band sings original songs, and have a downbeat melody that is pretty catchy. They came to us with a concept of a kid sitting on a bench and they wanted the title cut on the cover. We ended up going through quite a few variations of layouts, but finally came up with this one that the band was really happy with.

This band was an interesting one. Their sound would best be described as, experimental noise. They did a lot of modular synth, and odd sounds, cinematic cuts and more. They didn't really know what they were looking for as far as a cover, so we ended up going through about 10 different designs. Finally we were a bit stumped ourselves, but we tried one more times and came up with a cover design as bizarre as the band its self. They were definitely happy with this design.

This band had an interesting story. It was started by a local DJ turned musician that bounced through a couple bands, he finally ended up starting a solo project where he made this albums rough cuts, and then brought in a drummer to give it some live beats. He really knew exactly what he was looking for so it was pretty easy to put together. They wanted something with turntables, the logo and the instrumental label for other Dj's to tell it was a mixing cut. They loved the design.

This CD for was a solo artist. This guy played outstanding live improv piano. He was really talented and he apparently made this entire album as a live cut from an actual session he was playing. He knew we wanted something classy with a coffeeshop theme so we came up with this cover and he loved it. He said it was perfect for his venues.
