Seriously... who in the hell is in charge of putting fonts on the covers? These are absolutely disgusting looking...look like something from paint. 

All her single covers font wise have been bad but this is taking it to a whole new level...it's just ugly and cheap looking.

I think it's officially safe to say Avex does not have faith in BoA anymore...she needs to get away from these people asap.

I think the font kind of works for the cover on the top left though it's not proportioned properly. My favourite to least favourite covers are top right, top left, bottom right and bottom left :) Seriously bottom left is practically an Instagram photo :lol:

 

Edit: BoA needs the people behind Rainie Yang's albums to work on her's because they're fantastic :) I'll be over the moon if this photo book is anything close to Rainie's :)

Because I work in graphic design and these are terrible, people are paying close to $30 for 2 songs and a dvd they deserve better designs. No excuses on avex's side anymore...they look shopped by a 12 year old.

As a consumer I have the right to voice my opinion on a product I may buy.

^ They could've done a lot worse imo, and they have (Rock With You, Vivid). Who's Back is still much more worse than this, I cringe every time. Not liking that fur coat over the leather jacket though (as stunning as her hair and side profile is)

True those were pretty cringe worthy when I look back on them now, but with better technology you'd think they'd wanna make better products O.o

I get that. When you work in a particular industry and see others who are considered as professionals in that industry doing a poor job it's understandable that you'd get a little worked up.

Don't care about the font. I only see the gorgeous BoA covers. I hope her Korean album has elegant theme like this.

I think is the same font that they made for " MADE IN TWENTY "  or  " IDENTITY " with other effects, I really like the covers. Specially the cover number three  cause catch all the work of London.

I agree the fonts aren't amazing, but they're not horrible either. I'm just happy the covers are beautiful. BoA looks great and like herself unlike the crazy overphotoshopped pics used for masayume chasing. And London suits her!

I saw these on twitter and thought they were fan edits...

Hire me Avex, I'll design BoA's CD covers for free!

I really love the top two covers! The font's pretty meh but it's not as bad as Who's Back imo.
