CD packaging design for Old! (Fourteen Old Songs by Randy Ludacer)
©2013 Randy Ludacer
I’d been wanting for a while to design a CD package with something contained in that narrow compartment that jewel cases have. But what tangible object(s) would most suitably sum up that “old” gestalt?
Two 1/4 inch ball bearings. Obviously. Sourcing was tricky. I wanted them to be rusty, so they had to be carbon steel, rather than chrome-plated. Being rusty, the ball bearings over time will draw a skid mark line as they roll back and forth over their fluorescent orange track.
