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
Last we have the backside (outside of the tray). Guess wich app is usedWink Here I wanted it simple and good with space for the writings.
Lastly I want to thank the guys in the font size thread I have in here for good advise
