The SHAOLIN JAZZ – Album Cover Design Contest Winner: Shamona Stokes

DJ 2-Tone Jones and I would like to congratulate Shamona Stokes – the winner of The SHAOLIN JAZZ – Album Cover Design Contest.  We’d also like to thank all of the many designers for participating whose strong works made this decision a two day deliberation for 2-Tone and myself.  Let me emphasize – selecting ONE winner was crazy tough.

I’m sure some will, after seeing the other entries, question our decision and that’s cool especially after seeing those designers who also submitted a front and back cover.   However, the rules called for album covers and not a front and back – with the album cover front being what we based our judgement on.  Don’t get it twisted though, we really appreciate everyone’s efforts including the designers that went the extra mile and submitted two entries.

That said, and without getting into a list of details, we felt that Shamona’s album cover covered all of our criteria to a “T.”  To see more of Shamona’s work click here and if you’re interested in contacting her directly: shamona.stokes@gmail.com.

Shouts again to the designers who participated, VANS OTW and Staple Design for providing product and promo support, and the fans that have continued to support SHAOLIN JAZZ.  We’ve got some very cool creative extensions coming.
