I got my copy of the final, full color process printed album last night. It turned out better than I could’ve expected. Discmakers.com did a brilliant job on the printing. The cover is printed on a high-gloss, UV-coated stock that’s slick as all hell. There’s nothing like the satisfaction of getting something back from the printers. The music is awesome and it the whole thing goes well together as a cohesive package. The guys in the band have been awesome and fun to work with, allowing me all the creative freedom I could ask for. I’m proud to support their music with my design and illustration and look forward to future projects together. Now let me nerd out on the details:
I didn’t plan it, but the fills for the “Lakeview EP” lettering were left empty, so the mirrored surface of the disc shines through. You could say it’s a happy design accident that made the final product even better.
