There is already a band logo thread but this is for album cover requests. There have been numerous requests for covers on the logo thread which take up space on it - and it's not there for that, so here's the first version of a album cover thread.

1. People post requests for album covers.
2. Others design and post them up here.

Rules:

1) No spam
2) Nothing Inappropriate/Rude
3) No logo requests - there is a thread for that
4) Post must either have - Request, Album Cover, Praise or Dislike for a Cover or added info.

Info you can add:



How many sides of the album you want doing.
Name of band
Your band Logo (if you don't have one go here.)
Name of album
Preffered Color(s)
Font you want on your cover
Additioal text you want on your cover
Music Genre (eg. Metal, Death Metal, Classic Rock, Inde, Progressive Rock)
A picture of your band that you want on your cover (they always look cool )
Pictures of albums you like and would like your album cover to resemble (not copy just resemble)
Do you want a link where you can find the font used to create the logo (for later use by you) if available
Do you have a specific font you want used? post a link where the font can be downloaded for free of zip the font and attach it as an attachment with your request
Do you want the back of the album (where the track listing is) designing as well



Useful sites:
Fonts: Dafont
Pictures: Google Image Search (you can get example album covers here to)
Uploading an album cover: Image shack

If you request is overlooked:


You can repost it if you delete the post which carried the request the previous time(s)*

If your request is repeatedly overlooked, try the following:

Post an image of something to be Incorporated in the logo
Go to www.dafont.com and pick out fonts you'd like in the logo
Make a rough sketch on MS paint, or draw it and scan it onto the computer

the following was originally written by Slut
*if you dont know how to delete
*learning time*
click / (at the bottom right of your post)
at the top theres a section that say DELETE THIS MESSAGE click the box by "Delete Message" and click the button and BAMMO the post is gone
______________________________________________

People who can design album covers, please join in.

I would just like to point out something. I'm not trying to be a douche or a dick or anything.

That grim reaper that's being used for the album cover is a piece of copywritten art by Cyril Van Der Haegen. He could probably sue for the use of the art especially if its being distributed. Again I'm not trying to be a dick I just A. don't want anyone getting in trouble and B. I know what it feels like to have art stolen and it sucks.

To me the image is skewed left at the top, not dead centre, which is seems like it would look best as. Some some centre tag ought to do it

Hey guys.

I'm releasing my 3rd solo album soon and I was hoping one of u could help me design the cover.

Basically, I want a photo/drawing of a motel at the bottom left corner, with the word 'Vacancy' on top of it in neon, shining colours. As for the motel, and the rest of the cover, either colour it in subdued, dark realistic colours or in a chaotic 'arkham asylum' way.

Also, since there will only be a drawing/photo in the bottom left corner, it would be great if you could fill the rest of the cover with smoke or something that fits the colour scheme. And, if possible, try to blend in the word 'Wayne' into the smoke, so it doesn't really stand out until you sort of look carefully.

If you're not quite sure about any part, ask and i'll explain or try to sketch it out.

Thanks so much in advance. I need it urgently.

Some additional details about me if you need it for whatever reason:

Name- Wayne
Genre- Assorted, mostly odd rock
Influences- Silverchair, Radiohead, Muse, Jamiroquai

Do you have a logo?
Post it here if you do so I can put it on the cover.
If you don't go to the band logo thread (it's a sticky in promoting YOUR band forum)
