Typophile.com > Projects > Type Battles


You will create an album cover for a fictitious band, using a
fictitious album name and an image from Flickr. Follow these
steps below. Design your album and post it to this Battle
thread by Friday, 5pm Pacific.

1. The first article title on the Wikipedia Random Articles page
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random) is the name of
your band.

2. The last four words of the very last quotation on the Random
Quotations page (http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3)
is the title of your album.

3. The third picture in Flickr's Interesting Photos From The Last
7 Days (http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/) will
be your album cover.

Note: We recommend you check whether the creator
of the image has allowed for your use via creative commons

4. Use your graphics application of choice to throw them together,
and post the result.

This thread is proof that good graphic design relies on good photography as much as on matching it with good type.

I really lucked out on this image/text combo. Hope no one minds if I post another. (Original image)

I won't be a post-whore, but I was having so much fun I did a third and fourth, which I liked even better than the first.

It seemed that pop-punk troubador Radley Kaminiski had taken his latest break-up a little harder than the previous dozen.

I am new here. I love this battle. I've posted a couple and want to make more. Sorry I keep coming back to it. Some of these are quite believable. I swear I've seen some in the Dollar Bin!

I love all of the great designs you guys have created with this concept. I have started a new FaceBook group, soon to be it's own website named http://randomcddesignproject.com membership is free and it's going to be the place for the world to see all of these designs from this unique social experiment.
