Project Challenge: To design an 8-page CD booklet the Puerto Rican band Calle 13
Deliverables: 4.75”x 4.75” printed 8-page CD booklet.
About the Process: Calle 13 is a hip-hop Puerto Rican Latin band with strong political messages. I aimed for a dynamic, non-traditional design and used a “newspaper” theme to represent the idea of “getting a message across” and to make reference to the band's political content.
To illustrate the cover, I manually painted newspapers in order to achieve a richer texture, as opposed to the quality obtained when the color is added digitally.
