Digipack research

Leave a comment

From doing research on Digpacks I have found that:

Digipacks are a type of CD packaging made out of card stock or other heavy paper/cardboard material. Digipacks can flip open like a book, or it can have three parts, so that one portion of the packaging opens to the right and one to the left, with the CD in the center portion

I have also found that the album artwork is very important to the sales of an album. This is evident by this quote from the website ‘Designbump’

A powerful photograph could be all it takes to increase an albums amount of sales

From doing some more research I have found that albums can be distinguished into five types depending on their art work. The source I found this from is http://www.denisdesigns.com/blog/2010/04/amazing-album-cover-art/

The five types are:

Illustration/Painting

In these album covers there are no photos, they are made with illustrations or paintings.

Minimal

These album covers use photos and illustrations, but what makes them different is the large amount of space and the minimal visual elements. Many of these covers use their logos for the main visual artwork.

Photo

The main visual element for these album covers is a photo, usually either showing the band or having some connection to the title of the album.

Photomanipulation

These album covers use edited and manipulated photos as their artwork.

Found Objects

This group of album covers feature art that looks like found objects with the band name and album name on it.
