Record sleeve design for ‘Inner Dynamics’ by Theodore. Edition limited to 100 copies.
‘Inner Dynamics’ is a conceptual music album exploring the two sides of one’s personality, the conscious and subconscious one, with strong references to the artist’s personal experiences and thoughts.
When we think of conscious, we tend to imagine something well organised, constructed and easily conceivable. On the other hand, subconscious brings to mind blurry, disoriented and confusing images. Some processes of understanding these two brain functions require from one to gain better knowledge of primary schemes and meanings.
Starting with these general points, I thought of creating a blueprint of the human brain, with two views of it designed, the top and the side one. The top view is fully symmetrical with sharp edges and clear linear paths. The side view, though, is more relaxed and movement goes on all directions, following circular paths.
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.
