CD Cover Choices!

We just finished creating CD covers in class!  What would be the name of your band if you were in one?  Would you be a solo performer?  What kind of audience would your CD try to reach?  Students asked themselves this question as they decided what to create.

Students were to have original photos or artwork to use on the cover and then used Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator to add lettering.   We talked about spacing, contrast, filters, readability, spelling along with what covers attract our attention.  Some students even created their own original artwork and scanned it to use on their covers!  Most listened, a few may have gotten lost in the process, but we created the following CD covers this past week and learned a little more about the operations of Photoshop and Illustrator!
