First I had to chose an image I wanted for my digipak. I chose to have this image for my digipak back cover because itwas a shot from my music video and I think that it is quite aniconic scene in my music video but also sums up the meaningof the song giving the audience a brief idea what the songmeaning is going to be about. I also decided that when making my digipak I will be usingPhotoshop which is a program I have used a lot in the past.
Then I found an image ofmy record label that I will be using and I placed iton my digipak. I chose toput it on the bottom right because after looking atother artists CDs on thatrecord label most of their back covers have the Bridge Nine record label logo on the bottom of the cover.
After finding a logo for my record label to put onmy digipak I then found a barcode to put on my digipak to make it look a lot more realistic to real digipak products. I again placed this on the righthand side of my digipak so it would line to with my logo which is on the bottom right of my digipak.
After adding the barcode and logo of my record company I then added some small print on the bottom of my digipak. I chose to do this because after looking at other products I realised that they had this small print or something along the lines of what I have written. I chose to promote my bandsrecord label, website but also the store where you can buy merchandise for my band. I did this because I think it’s a good use of marketing for my bands image.
After adding all the realistic elements to my digipak I then added the songs which would be on the album. As my album is a single I had to make up names for the songs on the album. Usually singles have extended versions, remixs of the single alongwith the single version of the song so I have chosen to keep this when makingmy digipak. To create the writing I useddafont and illustrator because I was able to editing the size of my writing without pixilating the font but also the writing was unique to dafont and there wasn’t any writing which had the bold edgy font which is iconic to the record company Bridge Nine use with their other bands.
