And here is our FINAL Digipak! 🙂 we took everyone’s suggestive, critical and positive feedback to heart and came out with this in the end.
We hope it’s up to a decent standard.
And here is our final Digipak advert! Looking pretty awesome 🙂 props to Billy for getting this one done pretty quickly too!
Point #6 asks us to post up our audience feedback, so here it is!
I personally thought it was much better than what we’d expected but hey! It can get even better!
Here is our Digipak advert mockup! 😀
The first point asks us to look into conventions of an album advert. Billy and myself decided to look at a Swanky Tunes advert from Q magazine.
This is a list of what we found that grasped our attention.
– As per usual, the band logo is in big bold letters and is the easiest thing to see, very attention grabbing.
– There’s a picture of the album art in the foreground with their podcast advert opposite it.
– In terms of how it relates to the genre there is a whole band picture of the members drinking and playing poker in a club, considering the fact that Swanky Tunes are an EDM/House group this is rather fitting.
– Spotted: Website address under the album artwork – a bold message.
– Additionally, below the web address Facebook, Twitter and Soundcloud information – “Follow Us!”
– Usually this is where the band’s advert ends and the record companies’ section begins. This will often contain the producer logo, contact info and the producer’s website.
This is the feedback we got for our Digipak, seems like people enjoyed it, with a good handful of constructive criticism.
Here’s our Digipak mock-up, almost done now, just gotta make the logo look a bit less like One Direction.
Point #7 of the DAncillary (get it? Digpak+Ancillary) tasks asks us to create a flat-plan mockup of our Digipak so here it is, have fun looking at a very well sketched photo of the band 🙂
Hey everyone, point #6 asks us to investigate how the sales of CDs have changed in the last five years BUT due to there being no information on the sales of CDs between 2010 and 2013 we’ve been unable to get really reliable numbers for this.
However! There is an obvious trend between 2008 and 2013.
362.6 MILLION units CD
1.07 BILLION MP3
373.9 MILLION UNITS CD
1.16 BILLION MP3
326.2 MILLION UNITS CD
1.17 BILLION MP3
23.3 MILLION Units CD (Q1)
