Music Packaging


I’ve worked on 70+ CD, vinyl and DVD packages over the years, the majority of those in the past 10 years. Clients include Six Shooter Records, the Orange Lounge Recording Company, Royal Wood, and many independent artists. Here is the art from some of my favourites.

David Baxter, “Patina” : For the cover of this album, I designed and hand carved the type out of a piece of cedar. It was “aged” by Brian Gravestock, and photographed by Jen Squires, who did all the photography.

Luke Doucet, “Broken (and other rogue states)” : Design, layout and photo manipulation by CP. Photos by Anne Gillespie; illustration by Martin Tielli.

Broken CD art

Melissa McClelland, “Thumbelina's One Night Stand” : Design, layout and capital letter illustrations by CP; cover illustration and paintings by Martin Tielli.

Thumbelina CD art

Martin Tielli, “The Ghost of Danny Gross Part II” : Design, layout and typography by CP and Martin Tielli; paintings and illustration by Martin Tielli.

Danny Gross Part II CD art

Justin Hines, “Chasing Silver” : Design and layout by CP; original painting and drawings by Susan Weinreich; photography by Savanna Hines. The swirling colour pieces throughout the package were taken from Susan’s painting.
