Welcome to my A2 Media Studies Blog. The brief is: to produce a music video, a digipak cover, and magazine advert for the digipak. Throughout the course we will be learning about conventions (general and genre specific) used for each of these products.

CO - Digipak updates.

Below are some designs I've done on PhotoSh00p 4.0 for our digipak, following a few different themes and ideas, mostly nature and space related. I did the drafts on a small scale so the canvas would be easier to work with, so the designs below will not be exactly on the digipak as they are depicted here, apart from the last one.

The finished 1st draft of the cover, with the title of the EP added.

The proposed back of the CD case, when it comes to the final one this draft
won't be changed much at all.

The final design for the front of the digipak, similar to the inital drafts in the previous post.

The lyrics booklet.

The digipak credits. We've had some audience feedback for this and it was generally favourable
apart from the text being somewhat hard to read in places.

Here is a screenshot of how I've been making the designs, by using both Adobe PhotoShop 4.0 and 10.1 to create the canvases, effects and finished editions.

In this part, I am designing and editing vector traces and patterns
for the digipak back, as well as patterns used elsewhere on the designs.

Lastly, this is an example of how the final digipak front came together, by
importing parts from other canvases and editing different bits and pieces
with the tools PhotoShop provides, such as shadow effects and tints.
