Woah…Woah…Okay so heres another mixtape collaboration with DJ SHANX…we did some major engineering…

Here is the initial rough of the cover…I took the basic shapes and contours of the Dallas auditorium and created a vector logo of it and incorporated it into the logo…and next I tried to recreate the NBA logo and incorporate DJ elements (Headphones, Mics, Speakers, Etc.)

I had to do several comps of the NBA type logo…we went from headphones, speakers, microphones. We had some small problems tryin to read the headphones on the first draft…So we did a couple other versions and finagling decided to stick with a mic version of the NBA symbol…

On the Second revision we added some more texture by adding the hardwood floor and more background elements…So here is the final result…

Final Design of the Mixtape
