InFuse Records (2004)
Design by: Enoch Attire
With primary colors and simple (yet effective) font choices, this cover is bolder and more engaging than most politicians. At the same time, it communicated that Playdough and Blake Knight are serious about their silliness which is one of several reasons this piece earns our vote.
Illect Recordings (2006)
As hip hop listeners began to get accustomed to the sounds of Sivion, Illect Recordings felt it was a good time to re-introduce audiences to his early years with twin brother WuShu as the Phat Kats.
The designer wisely gave the album cover of previously-released material a vintage feel and the illustration of Dr. Seuss’ signature character (with a hip hop twist) is immediately intriguing.
Clear Sight Music (2012)
Artwork designed by Barton Damer of Already Been Chewed
The photo collage for FLAME‘s most recent release is one with depth that rewards viewers who invest time in examining its multi-layered detail.
It’s flashy, but not gaudy; complex, but not cluttered; and provides a clean and crisp idea of what’s inside. Well done.
