We here at Unified are obsessed with beautiful CD packaging. We’ve been making creative releases since 2008 and lovely packaging has become an obsession of ours. We even have a Pinterest page dedicated to all things media packaging. If you want to make a really badass album with cool CD packaging, get a quote or shoot us an email.
Artist: Gabby Young and Other Animal
Album: The Band Called Out For More
Designer: Andy Hau
“Using the kaleidoscope to represent Gabby Young’s unusual, dynamic and colourful persona that explodes through her music, we developed an octagonal packaging that opens and releases the CD in a revolving, spiral fashion.
Due to the success of the standard edition CD packaging design, I was further commissioned to develop a special boxset which takes the idea of an ever-changing kaleidoscope further. Based on 3 different “modes” (Butterflies, Album Name, Photos), the kaleidoscope front cover revolves around to reveal 14 different variations, allowing the front cover to match whatever mood the user takes.
The design was featured in several national newspapers and won the accolade of being named “this year’s most beautifully designed CD packaging” by the Financial Times.”
