Every week we give a new prompt, and participants go wild, using all their creativity, and producing fabulous covers far better than the original ones used by publishers.
Welcome to last week’s Wrap up and to the new challenge for the week.
So, are you ready?
This was last week’s theme:
And here are the gorgeous covers made by the participants. We’ve included the links to their blogs, so that you can visit them to learn how they made their covers. Go and visit!
Jennifer Nichole Wells joined the challenge for the first time. A warm welcome to her. Visit her blog to not only learn how she made this cover but also to see her work and fantastic photos for the One World Photo Challenge.
Julie Powell from Photographer and Graphic Artist worked on a composite of several different shots, then blended them in Photoshop, added some grunge layers, added a ‘fog’ layer and the text. Visit her site to hear the story and learn more about how she does her work.
Joanne from Coffee Fuels My Photography knew exactly which photo to use and what to do for this challenge. Here is the result! Check her blog to know more.
Debbie chose this photo, looking out from inside her glass house on a rainy day. It appealed to her for this challenge, says Debbie from Deb’s World! Head to her blog to learn more about her creative ideas.
Disperser Tracks once again makes a careful selection of photos, looks at the existing covers for the different editions of the book, and starts working on the photos, making several options until he decided for this one.
And now is the time for you to learn about the theme for the Cover Makeover #7!
Surprise, surprise! No book or CD, nor movie this week! It is a chocolate cover!
This is a fair-trade dark chocolate bar, which I buy often.
Marilyn Monroe once said: “Boys think girls are like books, If the cover doesn’t catch their eye they won’t bother to read what’s inside.”
Branding professionals believe the same. But look at this chocolate cover!
It kind of proves that belief that inner beauty is more important than the exterior. At least to me, because I keep buying it. Although the quality of the choco is excellent, the cover makes me burst into laughter.
Whoever designed this has lots of self-confidence and a very peculiar opinion about product’s branding!
Ah, and don’t be angry at me for the unpronounceable Dutch words. In case you want to translate the two sentences in Dutch and French, here it is: Subtle Citrus taste.
Yes, I know, French is soft but Dutch is a difficult language.
Stay tuned for Desley’s version coming soon! This is her turn to create our own version, and I am afraid she will prepare a revenge for me next week.
So, ready to go for the next challenge?
Here is how it works.
- Every Thursday we will give you the name of a book, music or movie, etc. and share with you our take on a new cover.
- You will prepare you own cover by using your archive photos or shooting a new one to go with the theme.
- Prepare your post and publish it. Remember to Ping Back (hyperlink) to this post. You may also copy your link to the comments section of this post.
- Use the tag #PhotoRehabCoverMakeover, so that we can find your post in the WP reader.
- Add your photo to the link provided below. In this way, you expose your photo to the other participants and the audience of the Photo Rehab.
- If you wish, you can add to your post the badge we made for the challenge (below).
- We will make a weekly wrap up of all the ingenious cover makeovers photos!
Every Thursday at 12:15 am CET you will find here the combined post. Immediately after that, every Thursday at 12:30 am CET, you will see the post with our version of the cover, which either Desley or I will create.
Isn’t this a cool challenge?!
Now that you have your theme, what are you waiting for? Let’s dive in.
