"With A Voice of Singing"
CD & Package
The Federated Church of Hyannis, located on Cape Cod, has a fine Senior Choir that wished to publish a CD of their singing as a memorial to a beloved choir member, Charles Van Buskirk. They contacted our production partners to record a clean master from their digital recordings. Our partners asked JS Design to design the CD and package artwork.
The Federated Church is a long established mainline Protestant congregation, so JS Design felt it appropriate to use a conservative, respectful approach to the project and to create a look consistent with other church publications.
The typeface chosen for headlines was 'Nuptual Script', commonly used on wedding invitations. We modified the face to give it a richer look in three layers --white, a gold edge and a drop shadow. A clean, modern san serif typeface, Arial, was chosen for the body copy. This face is legible even at four points, a factor critcal with CD packaging.
The Choir had a limited budget, so JS Design worked with existing artwork from their Church Directory and pictures taken by church members. The front cover uses an image of the church, a portion of which was used in the Directory. The church building was cropped and a new section, basically the right half of the image, was added by cloning. The entire image was pixelized and brightened. The gold edge used in the typeface was taken from the church artwork. Drop shadows were used to create a dimensional effect.
Artwork on the back cover was developed from a member's photograph of a statue contained in a niche in the church. The angel image was digitally removed from the niche, filtered and a drop shadow applied, giving the appearance that she floats above the page.
The professionals at JS Design will work with your band, group or organization to develop CD artwork that will meet your needs. The finished product will develop and enhance the image you seek to project with your project.
