Digipack Analysis

  1. 1. Digipack research<br />Jill Allden<br />
  2. 2. Cipes and the People “Conscious Revolution”<br />The image in the middle is a composite of pictures of fingers, a tiger and a tropical forest. There are also images of people and various things that reference society, such as a cartoon man pumping gas.<br />The photographs are arranged in the form of a flower in the centre.<br />All of these things accurately present the music – which is a sort of reggae/pop mix.<br />The two colours are bright and vibrant and work well against each other. The monochrome areas help the composition from being too cluttered.<br />
  3. 3. The Dark Knight Soundtrack<br />The overall tone of the image is very dark, with hardly any white areas. It is monochromed into blue tones, apart from the fire which is in a bat shape – referring to the main character of the series.<br />Batman himself is stood in the foreground and the shot is taken at a low angle, giving him power.<br />The only impression this image gives is of destruction and darkness, which is an adequate representation of the film itself.<br />His eyes are blacked out by shadow giving the impression of darkness and mystery.<br />
  4. 4. Kimya Dawson “Alphabutt”<br />This CD cover is in the style of a child’s drawing, done in colouring pencil and coloured unevenly.<br />“Alphabutt” is an amusing song for children to help them learn the alphabet.<br />Children’s things are often presented with personified animal figures. The only text is the title, the artist and the alphabet.<br />I like the cartoon style of the animals and the scenery.<br />I like how the entire cover is done in a childlike way – “Kimya Dawson and Friends” sounds like a children's’ TV show.<br />
  5. 5. Belle & Sebastian “Dear Catastrophe Waitress”<br />As you can see, there are two versions of this cover; the yellow and black one on the left and the blue, black and white one on the right.<br />In my opinion, the blue one is better because of the full range of contrast values as this allows you to see more of the image.<br />
  6. 6. Franz Ferdinand “Tonight”<br />The cover of Franz Ferdinand’s “Tonight” album is black and white photographic with the only colour being the band name. The back cover of the insert is a negative version of the hand on the front cover.<br />The album is quite different from their past ones, which were usually quite colourful and stylised imagery.<br />
