DIY Album and CD Cover
As it is the bridal shower of our friend, Verl Ramos (who, before her current stint in Singapore was a former associate editor of a home and lifestyle magazine. She also has interior design units so she merits the mention =P), we were looking for things to make for her party. We chanced upon this post on Curby.com on creating your own CD cover from paper. This we thought was perfect for a future CD one of us created by following instructions from a Facebook note tag from landscape architect Mary Claire Villanueva in Singapore. 
DOD's future album
Don’t you think this album is perfect for Drunk on Design?
Interested to create your own? Well, to do this:
1 – Go to “wikipedia.” Hit “random”
or click http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 – Go to “Random quotations”
or click http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

3 – Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days”
or click http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 – Use photoshop or a similar editing program to put it all together.

If you are really feeling it, make a playlist of  “what designers should be listening to for inspiration,” burn it on a CD and give to your favorite designer. We would appreciate it if you would send one to us, too.
Cheers!
