YE RULES

Go to this random Wikipedia link twice.

The first article's title is the band name, the second is the album name.

Design an album around this, you get to pick the genre.

Real Quick Example:

Now get to it.

    Just making sure, but you know you have to actually make a CD cover, right?

    This is a good way not to lose what our results were, though.

    Mine's really stupid, but I guess I'll give it a shot tommorow. Rules don't exclude the use of photos do they?

    Yeah, those were the original rules I learned it by, but I couldn't quite remember them. I'll update the OP.

    NM, returned it to the original, just call this a different, more free take on the original.

    I don't. Those rules really only allow you creative room for font selection and text placement, personally I wouldn't even bother entering were that the case.

    Well I'm definately not, my concept is set in stone and client approved. The guys from Lady of The Rosary are psyched.

    Northern Territory Greens - Rochester Airport

    Sounds like a 60's English band to me. At work now, but I'll get to it tonight.

    Mmm, that's what I told her when she showed me, so she's already made them more visible once. It's better for me, but it is always hard to balance subtle with "some people's monitors can't see this."
