Journey Re-designed Album Cover by whatorthat Journey Re-designed Album Cover by whatorthat
This is really one of the most beautiful soundtracks I've ever heard. Sometimes serenely ambient, sometimes bouncily frolicking, everything about it just makes me feel so inspired. I envy everyone with a PS3.

I knew I wanted to make an album cover of some sort, so I snooped around the internet, looking for good wallpapers to start from. Eventually I found this [link] which was both large enough (oh, proper resolution! how I love you), and exactly the image I was looking for. I was originally planning on just doing a crop – the game is pretty enough, honestly. Adding any more, I thought, would just make it look worse. Unfortunately though, the text was too large for the image's height to make a proper square. So I built out from the sides. I thought it would be nice to somehow incorporate the designs on the pilgrim's clothes into the outside, so I tried to recreate the first layer using squares.

Hopefully I haven't completely ruined the beauty of the game.

Here's an exemplary piece from the album: [link]

Also, here's Austin Wintory's (the composer's) YouTube Channel: [link]

I don't think you ruined the essence of the game. On the contrary, your work here respects and remembers the visuals of Journey, in my opinion! :) Nice job!

P.s.: I envy who possesses a PS3, too, because of this game!! XD

I think you've done great justice to both the style & beauty of game. The only reason I bought Journey was for the soundtrack. When I first heard about the game I was on the fence about it, then the first trailer came out. Almost instantly I fell in love with the music. I think that your redesign of the album cover is wonderful!

Wow, thank you! Judging by your gallery, it seems like we both live in the Bay Area. It's nice to know that I might find fellow Journey fans in San Francisco. :)

I'd like to think you can find a Journey fan any where, but then again I'm just biased. :D
