Design Studies // Vinyl Packaging
University of Greenwich // Year 3 April 2012
- The brief given was to design a CD or Vinyl packaging for a specific song or album. I chose the song Drops of Jupiter by the artist Train as the song is often misinterpreted and wanted to portray it with its true integrity. The writer sings about the loss of his mother and how he believes she is looking down on him; however there have been many misinterpretations of the song, many believing it was about a lover or women.
I wanted to convey the aspect of love within my design so I incorporated roses, both symbolic in life and death. I opted for a white vinyl design to enhance purity, heavens and angels, keeping the design clean and concise. The way in which the vinyl folds allows no glue to be used making it economically friendly and easy to open. The folding technique of the design makes it different to other designs; the user has to interact with the design to be able to receive the vinyl allowing them to appreciate the graphics.
