CD Covers for Inspiration

After my previous post on Pomplamoose’s Telephone Cover, I decided to put together a few of my favorite CD covers just as a bit of inspiration. There’s a lot with bright colors, others with sketches or illustrations, some ornate and some simpler ones. There’s a little bit of everything here… Which CD covers would you add? Of course there are sooo many great covers out there, but these are the ones that caught my eye today. Feel free to suggest your own favorites!

Pomplamoose’s “Telephone” Cover

Music Monday kids! I know this isn’t exactly design related, but I really love Pomplamoose and their cover of LadyGaga’s Telephone. Just thought I’d throw out some upbeat music to get us through this gray day. Hope you enjoy it!

WWMPD by Colleen Wainwright

Colleen Wainwright, the Communicatrix, has written an excellent article on reframing work as play. I found What Would Mary Poppins Do?, to be particularly helpful in regards to making those boring or repetitive tasks a lot more tolerable and possibly even fun! Colleen says it best, so I won’t bore you with my summary or it. With her permission I have posted her article here, but please consider subscribing to her newsletter for more exciting and informative articles. What would Mary Poppins do?
