Here are several cd cover design pieces I designed for Tila. When designing covers, I am not crazy about using original photos and just slapping text on top of it. If I can get away with adding elements of make believe, I will. For the “I Love My DJ” artwork, the top version of her cd cover design was too unreal for Tila though, so she went with the bottom one. Note, the boombox is noticeably absent from the original photo. Using Photoshop, I transformed the speakers into turntables. I also used a sample of her leopard leggings to skin certain elements of the boombox, bringing a sense of continuity from Tila to the boombox.
Check out how my design style for Tila’s music translated to her clothing line.
