For the artwork, the clients provided images from old magazines that had been run through a color photocopier. I scanned some of the images and together we chose one for the cover and interior panels behind the text.
One of my current projects is a CD design for “Xerox The Clouds,” a compelling collaboration of spoken word and improvised cello from poet Susan Hoover and cellist Sera Smolen. The tracks were recorded by legendary producer Julie Last.
The clients have chosen a standard, clear jewel case with a full-color tray card and a 4-panel insert. I recommended mixonic.com for the short run manufacturing. Mixonic is an affordable CD manufacturer with an easy-to-use web interface. Their templates are .psd files. Artwork files must formatted as psd files at 300ppi, so the final layout must be done in Photoshop. But first I bring the template into InDesign and layout the text over it. Then I export the .idd to a pdf file, which I place as a layer in Photoshop, where I can also manipulate the images.
It’s a pleasure to work with such talented clients!
