Your album and CD packaging layout by an experienced music industry designer/artworker
Perhaps you, someone in your band, or a talented friend or partner has drawn, painted or photographed something you’d like to use as the cover of your record or CD? Maybe you even also have an idea of how you’d like album and CD layout to look? But perhaps you don’t have InDesign®, Photoshop® or Illustrator®, or maybe you have one/all of them, but don’t yet have the necessary skills or the time and inclination to learn?
I can help you with your album packaging layout, contributing as much or as little as necessary, depending on what you have in mind and the level of your own skills. Whether you only have a photo, painting or drawing for the cover and are looking for someone to take care of the rest of the album design and layout, or have sorted out most of the layout yourself but just need help with typesetting in InDesign® or some other aspect – I can realise your objectives.
Over the course of 15 years or so, I worked on this basis with (extremely prolific!) cult underground figures Current 93 and Nurse With Wound (“Who?” 🤔😀), helping them realise their artistic visions and translating them across their many record and CD packaging layouts. I still occasionally undertake this type of work for others on an ad hoc basis.
Perfect printing results!
And of course, also included are things such as ensuring your album layout files have the correct bleeds/safe zones and that the correct colour modes/gamut and saturation are observed, meaning your files are ready for perfect printing!
If you’ve already finished your album packaging layout yourself, but aren’t confident you’ve set up and prepared everything so it will print reliably, I can also give your packaging layout files the once-over and make any necessary adjustments. This could be a massive help for you if your layout files have already been rejected by the printer/manufacturing broker, due to the sort of technical problems outlined above.
