One advice you often hear is to build your portfolio with work you'd would want to be commissionned for.

That's what I did in this project. I have a passion for music - not only as a listener, but also as a graphic designer who was inspired by record covers since my teenage years. I admire the works of Malcolm Garrett, Peter Saville, Vaughan Oliver, and Reid Miles, among others. I have been fortunate to work on some artwork projects in the music industry (available in my other projects pages), but I wanted to challenge myself by redesigning artwork covers from existing albums that I could take in a different direction. This was not based on my personal taste in music, but rather on an art direction exercise, with a clear brief, as if I was working for an artist.

Here are those reworks, front and back covers.
