Jason Puckett’s comment is:

On the Criterion Disc covers, I don't think they do them all themselves? I know Marc English Design(Slackers & My Own Private Idaho) and others have done some.

Armin’s comment is:

Jason, yes, definitely, they do commission other designers and illustrators. What I meant is that they do their own covers separate from the movie studios would do. Whether it's in-house or in collaboration with others.
