G.O.O.D. Music Cruel Summer Album Cover

Date released: September 14, 2012

The G.O.O.D. Music compilation album offered an opportunity for DONDA to focus less on the literal portrayal of a cover and more on creating something of memorable, conceptual beauty. Featuring a topless sculpture of a woman surrounded by a floral motif, the cover is more of a work of art than the majority of album covers out today. A 3D rotating model of this cover was made for promotional purposes featuring dramatic camera angles to show its minute details. Over 400 hours were poured into the creative process of Cruel Summer's cover, but the hours spent helped create an iconic visual.
