I enjoy the aesthetics of album art graphics design . I received an email today from designhitz.com. I was very impressed with their design portfolio. They have a strong chart of accounts that includes, Universal Music, Sun Records and Alligator Records.
Mark Slawinski evidences sharp use of color, offsetting geometrics with compelling images as he portrays various musicians/genres. Browse his art and see if there is an album design there for your next recording.
