We had a sub for my Computers in the Studio class on Monday who decided to give us a short timed assignment that she said was to “push us in the pool”. We had to design 3 4.5 x 4.5 inch CD covers – see captions for details. I’m quite proud of myself that within the time we had, and although not well-executed, I came up with a typographical concept that could work with all three mini-assignments.
