5. 1er Acto, Esteman
Photo by Andrés Bermudez, Design by Creadores & co. & Maria Cardona

This album cover stands out in many ways, just like Esteman‘s languid and clean-cut pose, captured by photographer Andrés Bermudez. There isn’t a ton of eclectic imagery that’s straining for the eye, nor are there a goulash of overwhelming colors. Instead, you find four solid shades, straight lines and shapes, and everything else that follows is as crisp as a new dollar bill. But honestly, the Colombian singer’s confident posture and graceful leap as he holds the mic says it all. This is simplicity with retro coolness at its best. -IR
