Digipak – Previous Students Work

Camera and Photoshop:

In my opinion the use of camera is good, the quality of the images are really clear and the images a nicely placed. I think the use of photoshop and design is extremely creative and powerful in this digi-pack, as the two merged faces are very eye-catching and attractive especially with the manipulated eyes, drawing you in the look more intensely and pay more attention to the digi-pack as a whole.

Mise-en-scene:

The mise-en-scene in this digi-pack is very conventional to the Acid-Jazz genre. The consistency of the colours and patterns makes the overall design appealing, it is simplistic but gives of an intricate and eye-catching vibe. The patterns communicate a dazed and confusing illusion that is set out to entrance its audience as if they were on acid, to make them feel enticed to buy the album and enjoy the music.

The typeface:

This is an easy to read, classic and simple style of font which is conventional to the genre. The simplicity of the font adds to the hypnotic patterns decorating the album. The position of the text is nicely placed. On the front cover the main text is perfectly centered and easy to identify, the back page is well layed out as the text wraps around the image, is clear to see and read but doesn’t take any attention away from the image. The placing of the text on the inner left of the digi-pack adds to the vibe of being in a daze and under an illusion because it is loosely placed and looks like it could be moving around freely.

Overall the use of colour, imagery and typeface all together ties in well with the genre and compliments each other to look presentable and effective in conveying the digi-packs message.
