One of the Art Directors I work with decided we needed to keep our creative juice flowing, so she thought that each week, we could challenge each other to a design “contest”. Last week, here were the instructions to creating a “Album Cover”:
1. Go to “wikipedia.” Hit “random”
or click en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random>
The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.
2. Go to “Random quotations” or clickwww.quotationspage.com/random.php3<http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3>
The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.
3. Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days”or clickwww.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days<http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days>Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
I challenge you to this! Send me your examples, I’d love to see what you find. It’s always important to step away from work, and find some inspiration to stay on top of your game. This week, we’re doing a project I’ve always wanted to tackle – stay tuned to read all about it!
