Music Packaging

Music Packaging
After designing posters for a few bands, I became involved with music packaging, as well. In fact, I’ve been involved with music packaging since I designed my own mixtape and cd packages, but it has been quite fulfilling to design for full-size gatefold LPs.
However, it is kind of a weird time to be involved with the design of music packaging. Most music is accessed digitally, so in many cases, most… all? cases I’m designing the 300 pixel jpeg that shows up on iTunes or Spotify, etc. But an unintended offshoot of that digital transition is an increase in analog music formats like vinyl records (and now cassette tapes).
