  1. 1. + Ancillary Text Spine Lauren Mabbett A2 Media
  2. 2. + Digipak Practise Photography The images I took for for practise edits are here and I used these to create a background for my spine.
  3. 3. + The Experiments These are the experimentations that I created with the images seen on the previous slide. I used the programme Photoshop CS6 and worked with the colour look up tool to work with colour. I layered the images on top of one another and used the blending tools overlay and lighten to get these effects before adding the different colour schemes. I feel these are a good connection to my imagine digipak however I feel that they are far too sharp for the genre and the style of music video that I have chosen therefore I will be adjusting these so they are a lot lighter for my final product. After I have produced this I will then work on text and labels.
  4. 4. + Stage 3 I took this picture on the left from Google.com after typing in ‘scribbles’ and applied it to a crop of a compilation I made earlier to produce this final outcome above. I was experimenting with the styles as I have incorporated a drawing technique and style throughout the whole of my ancillary text. I have experimented with these because it is keeping continuity throughout the course of creating my ancillary CD album pack. I wasn’t very keen on this idea therefore decided to use a different style of background for my music album spine and began to experiment with other features and filters in Photoshop. The background above is one that I created in order to have a more softer tone that would match my genre of music as well as the colour scheme I have set with golden tones and darker shades of yellow. Using something more plain I feel is more appropriate for my music album. I have got a pop song that I have changed to an acoustic styles bonus track therefore this would be a preferred representation of my genre instead of something too bold to contrast with the style of song choice.
  5. 5. + The labeling of the spine Once I had created the background for the spine I wanted to make sure I had a professional, conventional label for the text. I used the dafont.com product changes that I had previously used for the rest of my album to produce the title and artist names. I had applied the music label that my artist is signed to within my work and also the reference number of the album. I looked at the same album of Britney Spears that I did for the back cover reference for the style of reference number for my digipak spine. By placing the writing on the background I have created for the album spine it will complete the spine however I feel with the thin black writing it could become buried and burned into the background colours. Therefore I would have to up the exposure and lower the contrast of the back image in Photoshop by going to Image > Adjustments > Brightness/Contrast and also Exposure. As well as this I could invert the labels layer so that the writing is now in white and can be more visible to the audiences eyes.
  6. 6. + Final Spine I decided to keep the inversion of the writing and up the exposure of the background to get my final piece.
