This is a cd cover design for an amazingly talented Christian band based out of Chicago, IL. I created this cd cover design after discussing the concept with the art director (band member). He had a very specific idea in his mind and just needed me to bring it to life- fortunately we achieved the perfect design within the first round of design proofs. The client really wanted the city of Chicago represented in the background and so I designed a fitting cityscape with some dramatic clouds and scattering pigeons. The client also supplied me with a photo of neon signage for me to reference when designing his cd cover.
This Christian rap cd cover design was a labor of love, combining two loves of mine, my Christian faith, and hip hop music. A match made in heaven. The cd design for a U.S. based rap group started off as a pencil sketch in my drawing pad, I then began to add other elements such as text, textures, lettering, and a border. Christian rap music I believe is a music market that still has much growth potential- I believe that it will start to boom more and more in the future. The rap group is actually very talented and I encourage you all to go out and purchase this cd if you’re into christian hiphop music or if you just want to have a cd package with a great design also.
