I have always been really interested in the way that CD covers are designed especially ones that use typography and different patterns to make a creative looking cover. I feel like music artists usually just slap a picture of themselves on the cover and put their name on it. If they want to include a picture of themselves I think it works if they add a creative spin on it like the one that John Mayer did for his CD titled Room For Squares. I love when I can see design on the covers, it just makes it look that much better and it looks like the band cares about their music when they treat their covers like art.

CD Cover Design
I know that with the creation of the ipod and mp3 players CDs are becoming obsolete but they still show the artwork of the CDs on the ipod touches next to the song that is playing. I think that the use of design and music are a cool combination together because it is musical artists and graphic artists coming together to create a product or brand for a CD that will be sold to millions of people. I found this site with the 99 best designed CDs, take a look at the link below, you will probably find some artists on there that you like to listen to on you ipod. CD design has always been an interest of mine and it is something that I think is really neat!
