    Cd cover for Rieg

    Hello peeps

    Here are the finished cd cover I did for Reig. He's a Norwegian electronic musician. His web site can be found here, and you will find tastes of this album there as well.


    First out is the front and back of the booklet. The main theme here was the Czech Absinth ritual, which is the most famous one were you pour Absinth into the glass through a lump of sugar. Then the sugar is light, and burnt until its caramalized. The elements he wanted on the front was first and formost his and the albums name on the bottle label, then electronics and, of course, the ritual. On the back I put a picture of him playing in his studio.

    Next is the inside of the booklet. The little green thingy is made with Apophysis. I wanted to keep this simple and abstract so it didnt detract the attention from the writings.

    Then we have the actual cd. Here I just used elements from the front (praised be Photoshop with its layers), and another light environment made in Apophysis

    Hey Geir,
    How were these images created? Is mixture of 2D and 3D?

    Awesome work. Slick and vibrant, but still easy to read.
    Very professional looking. How did Rieg like it?

    Wish I could offer more useful post, but really I think it's perfect.

    Ta Liquidpope Apophysis is a 3D fractal renderer. I used that for all the light fx, and sawn them together in photohop. The main motif on the front is 2D hand painted in PS. Photo on the backside of the booklet tweaked in PS.

    Rieg loved it. So did the company who are printing it. They said it was the best they had seen in a long time. Gotta love praise like that

    Dont sweat it mate, just good to get some feedback
