At first glance this CD package looks, construction-wise, like any other. You expect more of the same as you open the nicely illustrated package, which striking in a single ink, surprises you with a double flip when you open it. Voila!

Project Description

This case was to celebrate Big Scary Monsters 100th release, run by Kevin Douch BSM Records is a one man operation releasing some of the best independent music in the UK. Kev also helped me start ACDSleeve, so it seemed fair for his 100th release to have the most eye catching design I had come up with. The design originally started out from folding a napkin whilst waiting for the bill at a family meal and a fair amount of development and prototypes later came up with a final design to have a die made.

Production Lesson(s)

It took a long while to figure out how to get the CDs to stay within the case when the case was shut--an assembly process I handled myself. Also with little to no experience in print it was a steep learning curve to get the project underway.”
