fallen angel cd art by sedateinfect fallen angel cd art by sedateinfect
this project started by me staring at the bands actual artwork for their cd. the images are nice but the layout & typography are awful. it's really a shame, but that's what happens when people who aren't real designers do work for you, cause they don't even know the specifications and rules you should follow when laying something out.

basically their art was done by someone who has photoshop and calls themself a designer.

anyway i wanted to use the feather package from resurgere badly. the pictures are just amazing and need little to no manipulation or editing to make an incredible image. so i opened them up and started work on this piece.

i changed the name of the cd as well as few other little things no one will really notice unless they are in the band or did the original artwork.

let me know what ya think abou this bitch. ohh and this is definitely going in my portfolio.

the image is huge too sorry.

fallen angel cd art by ~sedateinfect is a wonderful design package. Amazing work, a cd packaging design never looked so good. ( Featured by voodoo-prophet )

Absolutely gorgeous work. The hues, tones and colors make this piece standout from most other cd designs. The composition, font choice and photography is also quite elegantly comprised. Great work and deserving of Daily Dev.

If you would not mind would you tell us what the font name is or if you created that title font? In any case, wonderful work. Hope to see more.

thank you very much, not just you but everyone who has commented and +fav this piece.

to answer your question, the font is AF Retrospecta it's a commercial font, i can't think of what foundry it is though sorry. i'm too much of a type whore to remember where i got most of them, and when i mean whore i mean, 50,000 fonts on my computer, suitcase doesn't like me too much.

again thanks to everyone. you all fucking rule.

Yep, this is indeed a great cd-cover... This would definitely pull my attraction from a pile of cd's ... I guess I would even buy it without knowing what kind of music it will contain...
Photography is also stunning!

I know who I should go to when I get another request for making cd artwork...

Greetz,
Jeronimo

thank you very much i really appreciate it.

exactly what you said is exactly what i try to do when compiling something like this, because i do that. when i see something that looks awesome, no matter really what it is, if i have money or whatever i pick it up. art is really the only reason i'll buy a cd instead of downloading it.

Wow, this is some of the best design work I have seen in a very long time. You should definitely be proud to put this one in your portfolio. I love the color theme here, and the feather and font layout is absolutely brilliant. Gorgeous work on this suite. :+fav:

It's really good work but I don't care for the CD face itself. That sticks out like a sore thumb. You might try moving the image so it just shows the edge of the feather like on the Tray Card Outside (more black less orange), and make the band's name larger/bolder. It needs to be seen boldly when it's not in the jewel case (a lot of people toss those or separate and put just the CD in a portable CD storage binder or such).

I have to agree with you that much of the typography is weak -- it just doesn't have a lot of impact.
The photography and general composition however are extremely impressive. I really love the colours and the differences between each of the print materials. They all different yet feel connected, the branding definitely is consistent :)

Classy work on the whole.

A real CD based on my Feather pack was made last month by a french band, AfterTaste, after they got my permission. Guess it lends itself to music well enough... I'm assuming you did this project for fun, and not actually for a real cd design; because it states pretty clearly that commercial use of this stock is not allowed without permission... And you'd have to be pretty stupid to bring this design to my attention and risk getting sued if you did this design for real... Your not stupid are you?
