This is what I got:
The last photos are of my kitchen floor as we are having a new floor put in. So I was lucky to get the opportunity to take a photo of it! I think it fits really well with the genre of my track and relates nicely to 'The Streets', where I got my insipration from. I decided to use this as the background of my digipack:
I finished the design for the back of the digipack using the blue colours that I thought worked well with feel the track gives. I again used inspiration from 'The Streets' by using a piece of paper and handwriting the track names. I then transfered this onto my adobe digipack design by taking a photo, editing it on Photoshop and placing it onto the adobe file. This is what it looks like:
And this is what it looks like on the digipack:
My idea for the other panels of the digipack include:
- A polaroid image of the character for the front panel with handwritten/computerised text underneath the image so fit the idea of a polaroid image.
- A stretched image that fits both the inside panels. Maybe a photo taken of the character in the pub or walking down the street. I do not want to have different images of the character as that would be too 'pop genre'. I think a photo from the music video would fit well as it sets the scene better and delivers the correct aesthetic.
I have gained inspiration from reasearching real media products (album covers) and above are designs that particularly grabbed my attention. I like how the levels of exposure and constrast have been increased and I aim to achieve something similar in my own design.
Whilst researching, I came across these examples of digipaks and particularly liked how one image was used to cover the inside panels. The first example fits my design best as I am planning on designing a four panel digipak. However, after being attracted to 'THE POLICE' album covers, I also appreciated the increased levels of exposure and contrast in the Rihanna digipak.
