Fake Album Covers – Instructions

fakealbumcover_001

This is a great exercise in creating album covers, and it's also great fun to play around with random combinations. Take a look at the instructions below and give it a shot yourself :) This is a fake cover that I just made using these instructions...

1) Go to Wikipedia and hit “Random“. The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2) Go to Random Quotations. The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

3) Go to Flickr and click on “Explore the last 7 days”. Third picture (no matter what it is) will be your album cover.

4) Use Photoshop or similar to put it all together.

  6. Super fedt koncept! Spændende og interessante resultater der kan komme ud af det. Synes, at øvelsen er frisk og fascinerende med sine regler og faste rammer for valg af teskt og billede. Godt og sjovt koncept, specielt for folk som mig der har svært ved at træffe valg. Her tages valgene via øvelsens regler. Fedt! Vil helt sikkert give mig ikast med denne øvelse en dag.

    Jonas > I love that bird cover man! And great Flickr pool. Gotta subscribe to that.

    Andreas > You know what I have to say about this cover (and so does Mads, hehe).

    Marco > Lige præcis! Det er også det jeg synes er det fede ved denne leg: at man får nogle ingredienser foræret på forhånd, så man kun skal tage stilling til, hvordan de kan komme til at spille sammen. Og det er aldrig til at vide hvor udfordrende kombinationen er, eller om der kan komme noget helt genialt ud af det. Det er i hvert fald en kilde til stor inspiration synes jeg. Mon man ville kunne benytte samme koncept til andre formål? Hmm, dét skal der brainstormes på!

    I know the post is kinda old, but still got one thing to say. ;) I would rather browse the Creative Commons photos instead of whole ‘last 7 days’.
