Digging through some old files I found this little number - A Helloween CD jacket I designed during my school days. I love Halloween AND the band Helloween so this seems fitting for this month's post. Designing this CD cover was a fun and challenging project predominately with the photography, which was done by myself. I remember scavenging the dollar store in search of dusty, dirty old mirrors that, not only would suit it's dark theme, but also that I could smash and not feel guilty over. After destroying many mirrors and luckily not cutting myself, I transitioned through the design stage with ease. Being able to do your own photography has to be a designer's fantasy. When it comes to image use its not often we get just what we want or hoped from a client or can have such freedom of expression. This makes me want to work on my photography skills. Perhaps in a future post I'll showcase some more of my photography within my designs. In the meantime... Long live heavy metal!
