Evaluation of shoot or graphic design

Our shoot went fantastically, with so many locations and styles to pick from we were spoilt for choice. We spent the entire hour experimenting and testing out new and interesting ideas and everything was just so so good.

We used lots of various props and costumes to get a range of content for us to choose from when forming our Digi Pack for example we have them shirtless to represent their vulnerability, covered their faces to reflect insecurity and wrapped them together to symbolise their dependence on each other and their music.

Photoshoot / Design Production Meeting and Risk Assessment

This is by far and away the best Production Meeting Agenda as well as the best Risk Assessment I have personally ever worked on. Every ounce of my passion for media and entertainment flowed into the production of these pieces of work. Everything from the craftsmanship to the layout to the typography clearly and beautifully reflects my creative intentions and my goals as a artistically driven student.

Our goal with this shoot is to capture our stars in a humble and venerable state which depicts them as dependent on each other and the world through surreal and artistic imagery. This vulnerability will also make the artists feel less godlike and more human making it easier for the audience and their fans to connect and relate to them making them appreciate them that much more and encouraging support.

Digipak Moodboards

These mood-boards connote the general; unique and relate-able aesthetic we hope to capture for our Digi-pack as well as our band, it uses a mixture of dark and bright colors in tandem with strong surreal images in order to convey  a more deep and artistic style of music and brand.

Words to describe the aesthetic and in turn the star would we; artistic, personal, deep, dark, humble, extraordinary, alternative, grungy, meaningful, powerful and intense. The band and its style should stand out and the audience should still be thinking about it hours after they experience it.

Digipak Conventions Analysis

Like any media didgipak’s are filled with symbolic codes which connote various themes and ideas through the the fonts and images. They also follow their own conventions weather it be artistically such as having a picture or image on the front, or a natural business convention such as the record label or title. This album in particular uses dark and muted colours alongside surreal and unique imagery to perfectly capture the sound and feel of both the band and their music.
