When creating our digipak their were certain codes and conventions we needed to follow for the dance genre. For example, dance music digipaks include bold colours, the artists record label, a barcode, a font which is bold and eye catching etc… (check out blog post on codes and conventions for more information.). One theme we have decided to follow was the exploding paint effect. We decided to do this because our digipak and poster would be easily identifiable and it is bold and eye catching to an audience. One thing we felt was important to us was that we also used our own images within the digipaks. For this reason, we decided to layer our own photos within the text on the Digipaks. For example, on the back of the digipak i have used my own photo that i took at a festival of the sunset layered within the tracks on the CD. Other dance artists have used this effect such as Wilkinson on their Digipaks such as AFTERGLOW as their is an image layered within the text. We have decided to make this an ongoing theme within the digipak as its featured in the front, the back and the lettering on the CD.

the inside cover is made of over 80 photos. I used an app called pro mosaic where it layers lots of your photos over an original photo. The original photo is taken from boardmasters of fans raising their hands in the air.

This is the CD which shows the Artists name (MNEK). It also features photos layered within the text. This has 4 different photos layered within it. (paint fight, the crowd at a festival, a ferris wheel, hands in the air.)
