Ummmm.... coming up with a good concept is part of making a good cover. It's not just about the execution.
im a designer...
80% of the time...... the client comes with a concept already. So I just have to follow his concept.. if you do, u get paid..if u dont..u dont get paid...
Why this thread was made is beyond me..the person who made the shawty balboa and the rick ross cover as the thing..and the jay-z joint where hes batman.. is making about 6 out of 10 mixtape covers that you see today.. if the people here doesnt like the cover or the concept, its not going to hurt his pockets cuz the DJs and designers in this area of design think he's whats hot now. The rest of ur opinions dont really matter because most of you either download the sh*t without the cover, or dont have an eye for design in the first place.
wow i can't believe some of the covers that are actually being DEFENDED in here....wtf
its because the thread is full of people who dont know what goes behind designing, against designers who either know or have designed the covers themselves.
