AER20-200

Designed by Antti Kangas | Country: Finland

“Record cover for the debut 12″ vinyl EP of my personal electronic music project, AER20-200. The aim was to create an interesting, unique and catchy package, which would also be in line with the style of the music.

In this design, the cover consists of an outer sleeve made of white cardboard and an inner sleeve made of red paper. On the outer sleeve, all of the text, such as the names of the artist and the tracks is written by cutting out letter with a laser allowing the red inner sleeve to show through. There’s nothing printed on the outer cover itself – it’s pure white. As is the actual record. Only small engravings near the blank white center label tell which side of the record is which. The music itself is electronic and falls between styles such as glitch, idm, noise and techno. The machine made nature of the album is represented in the simplistic and almost mathematically precise form of the cover.”

“The brief: To create an identity for a line of vitamins sold in upmarket health food stores and organic markets. Design a logo and packaging.

The solution:The wordmark’s hand-cut feel, paired with modern typography communicates quality. Deckle-edged labels with die cuts reveal the contents of the bottles. The warm brown of the bottles adds a nostalgic touch while protecting the contents from the sunlight.”

Jazz: The Smithsonian Anthology

Designed by Visual Dialogue | Country: United States

“Problem: How do you put the history of jazz in a box? Not an easy task, but one Smithsonian Folkways Recordings was eager to take on. Using the historic compilation The Smithsonian Collection of Classic Jazz as the starting point, a team of over 50 experts set about selecting 111 tracks tracing 100 years of jazz. In addition to the music, the set need to include liner notes by 30 leading writers and a treasury or rarely-seen jazz photographs.

Solution: Visual Dialogue referenced the graphics and color palette of original Folkways JAZZ LP covers in creating an entirely new design for Jazz: The Smithsonian Anthology. The package combines a 200-page book and 6 CDs inside a translucent slipcase, befitting what Time magazine reviewed as “the single best introduction to America’s great musical form.”

“Although CD and DVD formats will certainly be replaced in the near future, I worked on a classification system which reduces the handling of plastic cases and complex envelopes, gathering all of the discs into a standard sized DVD box. The material used is made of simple recycled kraft chipboard, uses no glue and is printed in one color. The design allows generous space for the identification and description of content.”

The chests anonymous facade masks its immediate identification.”

Designed by Andrew Capener | Country: United States

“The A-1 Scrabble designer edition. The purpose of this project was to revive an old, but loved game: Scrabble. The idea was to excite people about typography by giving them the ability to choose what font their scrabble set would come in. The set would come in the font of your choice or with an assorted font pack. The scrabble board and interior box are made out of solid walnut, and the exterior box is made from birch. Each of the 6 board pieces is magnetized to fit together perfectly and each piece slides nicely into its respective slot in the box and is secured by interior magnets as well. The interior of the exterior box as well as the bottoms of the 6 board pieces are lined with cork, to protect them while in use.”

SET

Designed by Allen Choi | Country: United States

“SET is an award-winning, visual perception card game that is played around the world. For a design exercise, I wanted to explore a contemporary direction for its identity and package. The beauty of this game is in the cards, which feature iconic shapes and colors that, in a way, become a powerful identity in itself. For the logo, I was able to arrange these shapes into the word “SET” while keeping to the game’s definition of a set. For the packaging, I was inspired by the game’s origin: it was created by a population geneticist as a tool to understand different gene combinations. The design’s sterile and clean aesthetic is similar to the look of packages you may find in a laboratory.”
