This three-month temp position tests my time management skills and pushes me to learn to work better, faster (harder, stronger). With a target of 45 album covers a day, which averages to about one cover every <10 minutes, my skills in Photoshop and Illustrator are put to the test as I develop new styles of designing and experiment with every new brief.

The 45-cover target is one I haven’t missed since my second day on the job; in fact, I often create a few covers over target, without skipping on quality with each design. The briefs provided are extremely simple: Album Name, Album Artist, some track samples. The below slideshow contains 45 covers – a typical day’s work, and each one created in an average of under 10 minutes.

You can find a playlist of a variety of the covers I’ve created on Spotify here:
