Goudy CD Package by Ashwings Goudy CD Package by Ashwings
Full view reccomended!

Holy WOW I have been posting a LOT of stuff today! Okay okay, thats it, no more from me :XD:

I decided, for once, I will post what I actually DO in typography class.

This is for an non-profit CD packaging assignment that we had like...a week to do.

Our goal was to make a font designer look like a 'rockstar' or in my case 'thrash/death metal' star using type and images, we also had to design an entire packaging method on how to hold the CD and then actually create it. (I was too lazy to make the pattern here, so I'm just displaying the images).

So wee! All the images, the gun, the headphones, and the crazy band aid things are all taken and manipulated by me =D that was fun to do.
I mostly used my brushes, but to make life more interesting I used some custom brushes from:

^smashmethod
=Scully7491
~KeReN-R

And most of the fonts I had for a while now, but most came from abstractfonts.com, give em a look, that site is really cool.

I think thats it, I could be wrong, I used alot of brushes and fonts o__o;

Prolly put this into the scraps later, but I thought some of ya would like to see :)

I wonder how many of the people who posted comments actually know who Goudy is. I like that you included "sheep stealer". However, why didnt you use the Goudy typeface for this? It would have been perfect considering you elected to use a serif face anyway. Goudy's serifs are similar to devil horns (look at lower case 'g') which fits into the concept of this.

i can't believe you made Goudy into a thrash metal star! thats sacrelidge! he would have been far more decadent and middle of the road.. like micheal bolton or phil collins! lol

i am quite surprised that you didnt include one or more of his typefaces to represent him typographically, that would have seemed intuitive to me.

nice looking work though, i guess you are more of a thrash metal than goudy fan!

I really messed around with the highlights and shadows and stuff and used the dodge and burn tools. I put it on a seperate layer and messed around with all the setting and things, made it redder in some and darker in others and the like *nods*

o________o you get to make cool stuff like this for classes? aaawwww you guys get to do the fun crap, even if it is a lot of work. i go to school with a bunch of dumbasses who have actually said things like "wait hong knong's in china?" and "does the moon revolve around the earth?".
but anyways this looks absolutely amazing, like grunge-grime-badass-ness. you make the graphic design field look really good from where i'm standing. another A+++++ for you!
