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.
Album: Tyneham House
Label: Second Language and Clay Pipe Music
Art Director/ Designer: Frances Castle
This is a melancholic tribute for the tiny Dorset village of Tyneham, which was requisitioned by the British government during World War II and was never returned to the inhabitants. Land access around Tyneham was opened up in the 1970s, but admission to the house remains strictly forbidden.
Illustrations are made by Frances Castle.
The disquieting music of Tyneham House is made by artists who have previously graced Second Language releases, but who wish to remain anonymous.
What I love about this CD packaging is the combination of the cardboard and the quirky, colorful items inside– the tape, the CD, the pretty booklet.
