iliya got their new album cover by running a design contest:
Clever Design for a Rap Album Cover, "Teachings of a Student"
Check out iliya's Album Cover contest…
Entertainment & The Arts
I am a rapper and I released my first album in the summer, as well as a recent single. This cover design is for a second album to follow it up. My target audience has a large diversity however tends to be younger listeners.
What's your vision?
An album cover for a rap album to be published on all streaming platforms. I would like the design to include the name of the album, “teachings of a student”, as well as the logo of my name attached below (feel free to change the colour). My last release, "Complex Architecture", had a graphic image of a head which I also attach; I would like this design to be clearly different. I generally do like a graphic design style and I attach some images so you can get a sense for my taste. For example, the reason I like the image of the cat is because there are underlying mathematical references to the Fibonacci Sequence that ties into the album title of "teachings of a student", I definitely don’t want a cat on the album cover however as it is unrelated.
One idea that I had, which I hesitate to mention as I really do not want all the designs to reflect it, is a blue blackboard as the background, showing the rubbed out chalk marks that reference a thinking process in a teaching environment. I would really like the designs to reflect thinking outside the box, and certainly not be narrowly restricted to classrooms for example. I am really looking forward to being surprised by a clever and striking graphic design solution!
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Album Cover starts at $269.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their album cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
iliya collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
