About This Class

In this class we will create an amazing piece of album artwork. You will combine beautiful imagery with geometric designs and text using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. The main objective of this class is to show you my workflow and how I handle different creative challenges. It is not a step by step class but is intended to inspire you as you travel on your creative journey. 

This information could be used in many different circumstances beyond album covers. I’d love to see what you all come up with so please post your projects below.

Lets get started!

Jeff Russell

Freelance Motion Designer

Hello, I'm Jeff. Motion design has been my bread and butter for over 17 years. I currently freelance from my home office in Norfolk, VA. I have a beautiful wife and two kids. In my free time I like to geek out over board games, hit the gym, and take a dip in the pool. (not necessarily in that order)
