I am a hip hop artist looking for an album cover.
EDIT : IT CAN BE AS COMPLEX AND 3 AS YOU WANT IT, SEEMS LIKE THE DESIGNS HAVE BEEN TO SIMPLE.
First off, here are the album covers that I like
Now, Note that these are pretty simplistic, 2d album covers that are not too flashy.
Now on to some guidelines.
As the Background Color, I prefer black, white or very very light pink(which looks like a bucket of white paint with a single drop of a pink paint)(Like this http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images…1127_.jpg)
As far as fonts go, I want it to be a little mischievous(but not to a point it's immature) like the first two album covers I included, and not too formal at the same time.
Also, If the back ground is Black, I want the fonts to be white,
and if the background is white or pinkish, I want black fonts(for "full house)
The fonts obviously can be in the center, but I want to leave it up to the designers to use their creativity if they WANT TO, you don't have to feel like you have to place it somewhere other than the center or vice versa.
The name of the Album is "Full House"
I want just patterns or cards ( clubs heart spade and diamonds) to be part of the album cover.
The cards can be either all face up or mix of face up and down.
I want them to be skewed in rotation and patterned something like
Obviously I don't wanna steal his cover art and place them where he placed it. It's up to you guys.
It doesn't have to be at the top right corner or left or middle corner.
But if anything, try to make it be at the top(as if they are falling down)
or all across the background.
Please don't make these "patterns" tiny to a point where u can't see what they are but also not too big enough to steal the focus of the album cover.
Those are the main guidelins but if you guys want to mess around and do something different, feel free to do it. you guys are the expert.
I need the album cover to be 2000 by 2000
