This weekend, I was feeling kind of bored, so I decided to redesign Mike Posner’s upcoming album cover. My friends and I were really disappointed to see his new album cover lose the vector-graphic feeling. Instead, he had a simple photograph of himself sitting on a plane accompanied by some horrendous typography. I took the initiative of redrawing the image in Illustrator and using some more vibrant colors in the type, much like his previous album covers.
EDIT: After hearing the new album, I completely understand why the album cover was so bad. Evidently, there is a direct correlation between aesthetics of the album cover and quality of music. [two thumbs down]
