Graphic Designer CD Cover Game

Wanna play a game? Sure you do. It’s a fun, creative diversion for you. The objective is to create a CD cover using a random band name, a random album name, and a random photo. Here are the rules.

  1. Use this link to generate a random Wikipedia article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random. The name of the article is the band name.

  2. Use this link to pull up a page with random quotes: http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php. The last 4 or 5 words from the last quote on the page is the album name.

  3. Use this link to pull up a page of Creative Commons images from Flickr: https://www.flickriver.com/groups/creative_commons-_free_pictures/pool/random/. The third image is your CD cover image.

  4. Sometimes you get a dynamite combination. Sometimes you don’t. No cherry picking. That’s the rules.

  5. Spend no more than 10 minutes to work up your CD cover.

  6. Save the cover as a 10 in x 10 in JPEG at 72 ppi and post your results here.

  7. Have fun!

Other than the band name, I got pretty lucky with the rest.

The copy makes no sense to me, but at least the image has a nice feel.
