Project Description

Lift Every Voice is Texas State University President Denise M. Trauth’s holiday gift to a special audience. The goal of the project is to instill Bobcat pride and expand the university’€™s a cappella group’s audience. The CD packaging juxtaposes sophisticated typography with high-impact photography of the most beautiful campus in Texas. The layering of the song lyrics on semi-translucent pages adds a subtle effect to the photography revealed below and complements the message of discovery and change in the album’s music. The overall impression is more reminiscent of a specialty book than a simple CD package.

Production Lesson(s)

It was a challenge to get the foil-stamped line work on the cover as fine as we wanted. We leveraged our printers’€™ knowledge throughout the planning process to adjust and achieve the final design. Communication is key when working with our printers, and our great relationship with them gave us a stunning product.”
