This is a contact sheet of all the images from our shoot for our Digi-Pack. We created this so that we could easily and clearly see all of the images we took so that is was easier to create a short list.
This is our short listed contact sheet of our favourite images from the shoot
This is the first mock-up of our Digi-Pack using images found on the internet. We have decided to go for Celtic symbols and broken down, dilapidated buildings to create a grungy, and heavy vibe
This is our moodboard that we created. We did this to help us plan what we want to include n our own Digi-Pack, things like colours, patterns and designs. Doing this will make it easier when it comes to digitally creating our Digi-Pack as we will be more prepared and already have some sort of idea as to what we want it to look like. We are going for anarchic and rugged symbols, we also want to include derelict and abandoned hotels and sites to create a tone of abandonment and wreckage.
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.
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.
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.
This is our analysis of a similar artists digi-pack. We have picked out the colours used and why they are conventional, text and font and what is generally conventional and re-occurring in most rock genre album covers.
