Single covers: a daily design challenge

Single covers: a daily design challenge

Daily design challenges are pretty common amongst the design community. They’re a great way to develop new skills, learn new tools and build a portfolio. It was one of the reasons why I decided to do one.

The rules were simple: each day I opened up iTunes, hit shuffle, pressed “next track” 3 times and whatever came up was my topic.

I gave myself 30 minutes of thinking time and an hour of “design time”. Everything had to be done on my iPad Pro. I couldn’t use photographs or design elements unless I’d created them.

Cue a week of creating covers from the random tracks that iTunes served up.
