I decided to look back over recent years for further inspiration. I remember in 2007, I had an iPod Nano, and I used to love seeing the album artwork displayed on the tiny screen. Nowadays, the majority of people have smart phones with built in MP3 players, and the album art work is still accessible but on a larger screen. For me this goes to show the relevance and importance that album cover designs still have. Below is a selection of designs that I find inspiring, taken from a time in my life that I distinctly remember for appreciating and enjoying album art.
