Artist: Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez, Selena Gomez, Miguel, etc.

If one man has a vision that embodies the visual focus of major pop stars like J-Lo, Lady Gaga, Paul McCartney, and Katy Perry, that man is Gavin Taylor. His studio is responsible for the covers of some of the biggest-selling albums in recent memory: Carly Rae Jepsen's Kiss, a number of Katy Perry singles (not to mention the cover of her new LP), and a slew of other work. If you're interested in how the design mind of one of the broadest-reaching designers in the business gets it done, Taylor keeps a detailed record of his work and process on his blog.
