The design for this digipak CD Album evolved from the concept created for the single Manage. On the single cover, we designed an abstracted mesh of the artist blending into the original photo – a visual representation of a “man-machine”.
For the album Demokracy, we explored “robotising” the head completely whilst leaving the torso as a photo. After several design concepts, the artist suggested the idea of exploding the fragmented head, which we all agreed was the concept to develop. The exploded angular fragments then became a theme for the packaging flowing through to the back cover of the digipak.
The diagonal red panel communicates the socio-political nature of the album and also connects with the title Demokracy.
