Hyper Crush CD mock-up

Hyper Crush by James White

Here is a CD cover design I created for the 80s-style electro group Hyper Crush. Given the groups current visual language of extreme colors and retro motifs, I tried to create something that mixed the style of old K-Tel album covers with the over-the-top execution of Judas Priest. Other then the metallic letters, the Priest reference was all but lost once I added all the effects.

I tried to make the design as amped up as I could what with the explosions and lightning, which was lots fun. The design got progressively more hilarious as I added layer upon layer of effects :)


  1. Great cover. When I see it, it makes me feel like going to an arcade and drinking a squishy.

  2. insane! love it, but I would remove the ‘grunge’ boarder you’ve been using lately. It looks good on some other things, but here it just doesn’t fit.
