CD Design

You’ve put a lot of time and money into writing, arranging, recording and producing your music.  This next step is just as important.  It’s the first thing your fans see before listening and buying your new release.  Let me design your packaging with as much hard work and effort as you did while recording your music.

As you can see from my portfolio, each design is unique and compliments each musician. I take the time to really listen to your music and research the design trends of your genre. My designs are created ready to go to your printer of choice. I have a few excellent sources I can recommend. I can also design your posters, postcards and press materials to keep consistency with your new release. I put in extra effort to make your experience the best so that you can focus on what you do best; making music.
