Custom Artwork: From Elvis In Memphis

Post by Johnny2523 »

Inspired by this Italian release i figured i'd expand it and make it a bit of a more clean design.

Johnny, your custom, as nice as it looks, it looks like a traditional RCA release.

Here is my attempt on the Italian version. I love the white album cover, it's rare in Elvis' discography, so I kept the layout the same, also the blue strip sets off the white very well, but the image made to be mirrored looks a little cheesy.

the purpose of mine was actually to make it a traditional looking RCA release, but by taking those elements of the italian release (The big RCA logo for example, and using the same photo but expanding it leaving out the mirror image and white)

I like your design too, very nice!

Do you have the back side also, Johnny?


When the evening shadows fall
And you're wondering who to call
For a little company
There's always me

I like them both! I think there are only two ways to approach an alternate cover: Keeping up a contemporary design or creating something really new.
