Title: Create Your Own Music Album Cover 

Description: Welcome to the "Create Your Own Album Cover Art Challenge!". Are you a creative soul with a passion for music and design? This challenge is tailor-made for you!

Challenge Objective: Your main goal is to style a vinyl, CD, or cassette cover for your very own fictional musical band's album. Let your imagination run wild as you craft a visually stunning representation of your music. Whether you're a graphic designer, illustrator, or just a music enthusiast, this challenge is your opportunity to showcase your artistic talents.


Rules and Guidelines:

  1. Album Theme: Select a theme for your album. It could be anything from rock and roll to electronic, classical, hip-hop, or even an entirely new genre you've invented.

  2. Create or Customize: You can either create your own physical album cover or use existing boxes and packages as a canvas. This choice is entirely up to you. Styling and coloring plates and CDs are optional and won't be judged, but they are encouraged for added creativity.

  3. Artistic Freedom: There are no limits to your creativity. You can use any artistic medium – digital, traditional, mixed media, or even 3D if you prefer. Be sure to focus on the aesthetics, typography, and overall design of your album cover.

  4. Musical Band Name: Invent a unique name for your fictional band. This will be an essential part of your album's identity.

  5. Album Title: Create a compelling title for your album. The title should resonate with the theme and style you've chosen.

  6. ​​Submission: The deadline for this homework is 10.01.2024. You should bring your work at the Aleksandra Čaka iela 58, Latgales priekšpilsēta, Rīga, LV-1011. For foreign participants – you can bring your work at the convention on the 13th of January.

  2. Relevance to Theme: Does your album cover effectively convey the mood and genre of your fictional band's music?
