Random Album Game

I played this little game last year sometime, and had some good fun with it. The game cropped up again on Facebook, and I decided to play it again.

This game has a few simple steps to create a totally random album cover for a fictional band, and sometimes the outcome you would think this album and band could exist.


1 - Go to wikipedia and hit random. The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 - Go to quotationspage.com and hit random. The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

3 - Go to Flickr.com and click on “explore the last seven days”. Third picture no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 - Use Photoshop or similar (picnik.com is a free online photo editor) to put it all together.

5 - Enjoy what you have created.

Here is what I created, yep completely random, I can actually imagine this printed out on a Vinyl sleeve. 

This quick and simple game is good fun, perhaps a nice way to touch up on your design skills. 

Have a go yourself :)
