Today I have some MixTape covers to showcase for you guys. These MixTape Covers are inspiring, attractive and definitely well designed. I thought of showcasing something different to my readers for the Friday Inspiration Station. Hope you guys and girls enjoy the covers and find them as inspiring as I did.

    I usually don’t like mixtape covers because of their obvious bouts with copyright infringing photos, but..that cassette tape one is so sick and original!

    Eeek – most of these are pretty horrible and as a lover of hip-hop and mixtapes, I see these atrocious designs all of the time. However there are about 4 to 5 that stand out from the cluttered mess of the others including the one mentioned about using the cassette tape.

  9. Extremely inspiring collection. Thanks for the share mate

    All the best, Ted

  12. Nice post but I find mixtape covers to be pathetically redundant and uncreative. The content and elements are always the same, guns, designer labels, wads of cash, chains, cars, excessive wealth, blah, blah blah. The crazy colors, heavy collage compositing and rich grungy contrast don’t compensate for the lack of imagination and cookie cutter plugin usage. I agree with theComplex and Melody that some are very well done like the cassette tape design. But for the most part they are interesting not exceptional. I would like to see one with dance music also.

    Thanks

  13. Very nice collection, colors are so vivid. Great inspiration for future work.

  19. Excellent showcase! The artwork on some of these covers is incredible. I hope a lot of the younger heads are taking note of yet another potential career for hip-hop entrepreneurs–graphic design.

  20. That is an amazing showcase. I just have been looking to this page for about 10 minutes :P

  21. SoulSizzle says:

    Thanks for including my artwork, the Sleeper Cell mixtape (2nd from the top). Glad to be one of the few that doesn’t include money, guns, or cars. Shit is getting mad played out!

  22. S-Preme says:

    ya! that cassette tape cover joint is mine! erika simmons aka iri5 (@iri5 on twitter) made it for me, she does alot of cassette/reel to reel/found object art she’s a beast!

  23. Yo these are some of the hottest covers ive ever seen. Im actually a up and coming artist out of Detroit looking for a professional industry cover like one of these myself. Whover is the mastermind behind these, please hit me up. I am interested in flying you a few photos thru the email and seeing what you all come up with for my concept.
