In the lesson, we had to create a collage of different ideas using different media to help us get a sense of direction as to what our digipaks might look like. It also assured our understanding of the themes and styles shown in out genres digipaks.
There are a variation of themes, colours and typefaces in the indie genre which send different messages dependant on the artist.
You can see the different ideas we’ve seen across digipaks and the connotations that theu have. Our band Kensuke’s Castle connotes more of a sci-fi, artificial type vibe. After some discussion, we decided to incorporate the idea of the gradient and used an object (a head) to be in the forefront which created the peculiar look and symbolisn that’s often seen in the indie genre.
