“Special edition DVD set, inspired by the movie Cinema Paradiso—a nostalgic film that evokes a feeling of love and passion through the bonds which the characters share, and the simple lifestyles of rural Sicilians. The music is a masterpeice in its own right, and so this package takes parts of the movie as key points to garner a sense of warm antiquity, that is exotic yet so familiar and human.”

“I made this album cover for my band packed into an A3 poster. After I folded it I realized that the paper has so much friction that it holds the CD without any glue or plastic.”

Designed by Ghostly International | Country: United States
“For Ghostly International’s hundredth release, we wanted to commemorate the occasion with something more than music, something bigger, more permanent—a humble monument to our first decade’s work and a gift to our loyal fans. The Ghostly Bento was inspired by Japan and its tradition of quality, service, and design—values that Ghostly has always cherished. “Manzoku” is a Japanese word that roughly translates to “satisfaction.” Thus, the Bento is an intimate celebration of satisfaction in multiple forms—tactile, visual, aural—packaged in a handcrafted wooden box, stained and etched with a stunning image by LA artist Dosa Kim.
The Ghostly Bento is extremely limited in quantity (only 50 boxes were made) and handmade by a team of artists, designers, and craftspeople working closely with Ghostly International.”

“After a split-7″ release on Siluh, the debut album “Planet, Planet” (Klimbim Records/Cargo) put the spotlight firmly on the Berliner lads from Elyjah. For us it was clear: this CD is fantastic. Both playful and atmospheric, it leaves a lasting impression. To ensure that that message was conveyed to the customer, we fired pellets at all two thousand covers. They circle like planets around a fixed point. Returning to a time in which men had morals in their hearts and cloth handkerchiefs in their trouser pockets, we put the band in Herr von Eden suits and then printed the large-format photos shot by Norman Konrad by hand.
Typographically, we continued this theme with two typefaces from that time period: Memphis, from Emil Rudolph Weiß (1929) and the wonderful Wieynck Gotisch from Heinrich Wieynck (1926) were put into use on an old Heidelberg printing machine.”

“We were asked to design this limited box set edition for mexican rock band ZOÉ. The hand-drawn artwork was inspired by The Beatles’ Revolver and was based on an actual photo shoot of the band. The set contains the band’s 3 previous album releases on 12″ vinyl plus a revisited album of their latest studio recording Reptilectric, with remixes by artists such as Mad Professor, Schneider TM, Colder and Sebastien Tellier, also illustrated by hand.”
