“We decided to have a sleeve close to the DVD format. After some tests, we agreed on 3 layers of cardboard with a big hole to see the CD, an opening on right side where you drag the CD and a small hole on the back side (this hole matches perfect with center of the CD, but is just for aesthetics). We added some felt where you put the CD which comes in red or grey.

For the graphics, the musicians wanted something without 90º angles and we (at the label) wanted something with a lot of detail, a reminder of their music. A friend – Camille, makes etchings and was working on feathers… We decided to work with her. It was going to be a bit too though to make 500 + promos copies only by etching, so we decided to screen print her work instead. We used white and red or grey for the front (it depend of the felt) and black + silver for the back.”
