Designing a CD cover isn’t just the pretty bit on the front. It’s the whole package and it’s great to get my “file copy” 😉 when it’s as good as this cool double CD with booklet and free postcards for one of the rockinest bands ever!!
This weeks record cover and packaging has been approved an on it’s way to the pressing plant. Jack Rabbit Slim have been one of the biggest rockabilly bands on the planet for the last 10 or 15 years up until their split fairly recently. This is for a double CD covering the best from their many albums and singles.
Sometime I just kick supplied artwork into shape for the pressing plant, sometimes I work on layout and composition and sometimes, like this time, I get full artwork duties juggling Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe InDesign to produce every aspect of the CD packaging.
Another CD album cover gets the ‘blast off’ button pressed 🙂 This time it’s the legendary “Jack Rabbit Slim”. Two of their early albums on one shiny disk! The mission statement was to combine elements of the two original album covers in one design, so here it is. All the tacks from “From The Waist Down” and “Hairdos & Heartaches”. A whole bucketfull of sleazy rockabilly craziness 🙂
Approval on this great 21 track compilation CD from Western Star, featuring some of the top rockabilly acts from the Western Star label, came in just before I slip of home for an exciting weekend of painting and housework. I’m all rock ‘n’ roll me!
Just sent off the print ready files for the packaging of Jack Rabbit Slim’s forthcoming CD “Rockin’ with … Jack Rabbit Slim Vols. 1 & 2” which combines all the tracks from their 2 vinyl EPS (vol. 2 hasn’t been released as yet). How cool is it to be working with some of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll bands on the planet today!!!!
