cd design

Booklet, Trayback, CD Face, Inserts, Posters, Digipak, Text, Tee Shirts --
whatever you need!

Below is a sampling of some of the CDs I've designed:

Mary E. Holland, a San Francisco singer, had a friend design her first CD. She brought it to me because she felt it needed a more stylish presentation. I colorized the photo from the old cover and placed it in a more dynamic setting.

photo correction


This band uses two sets of lead singers. They didn't want to take a separate publicity photo, so they sent me the BEFORE pic, along with head shots of the two alternative members. I did some gentle skin-grafting and came up with an AFTER picture they could use in their promo.



The same band recently had an excellent photo taken; unfortunately it was shot in the recording studio, so the gray background was not professional or exciting enough to be used as a promo shot. I added a colorful cityscape that ties in with the name of the band (CITY LIGHTS), and the band now features the "enhanced" photo in their promo package.






promotional posters & flyers

The full-size art is printed on glossy photo paper for display, and a smaller version can be made into postcards or sent in emails to publicize the events.


Here is a sampling of websites I designed and maintain, updating whenever needed:
