Cover artwork DOs and DON’Ts for your next album or single.

In this episode of the DIY Musician Live, I speak with CD Baby’s Josh Coyle and Crystal Lemons about how to design eye-catching cover artwork, and we take a look at some examples of both good and bad cover design.

Before you hire a designer, manufacture CDs, or pay to distribute your music, find out:

  • What makes a great album cover?
  • What are some common artwork mistakes?
  • What are the guidelines that must be followed if you want your music to be available on platforms like Spotify and Apple Music?
  • And how do you create an effective cover yourself without dropping a bunch of money?
