Creative CD packaging

Below are some examples of unusual CD packaging. I scanned them from a cool book a while ago, but I've rediscovered them just now. Tiny details including designers/record labels are in left bottom corners. Excuse the pagination...

Fabric promotional Posters

Quite old but still cool. Really interesting promotional posters for London nightclub Fabric by Village Green who also do the graphics for Fabric's sister club Matter.

22/22 -promotional items for the event by SOLV

A series of screen-printed posters. Around 50 hand-made posters were printed in 3 different versions. Many of the posters were instantly stolen minutes after they had been posted around the college. We take it as a compliment...

300 flyers were also printed digitally and distributed also outside the college including local coffee shops, students' halls etc. More exciting photos to be published very soon!

SOLV present 22/22

The Wee Red is being taken over by ECA design collective SOLV who will be hosting this one-off night.

22/22 will be an audio/visual experience so not only have we got a line-up of Djs sure to get everyone moving but SOLV will also be designing visuals specially for the night. These will be projected as an abstract/ambient feature and create something a little bit special. Expect the unexpected

All proceeds will be split between a project promoting work at the Art College and the Graphics Degree Show.

We are currently very busy shooting and editing the visuals and working on some limited edition screen printed posters. We'll keep people posted on our progress with this...

Solv were almost done for arson as they nearly set the print workshop on fire. After creating our logo using hundreds of matchsticks, PVA and a board of MDF we wanted to see if the matches could have a 'domino' effect where each one lit the next until the whole logo was up in flames. This was achieved and we ended up with bigger flames than expected. That's what comes of playing with fire.
