This Special Edition DVD Case is for the 1997 animated movie, Anastasia by Twentieth Century Fox Films. The assignment was to create a special edition DVD case of our favorite movie. I have always loved Anastasia, and even though it was going to be a challenge to find some depth to channel into my design, it was my favorite. I decided to create three tiered acrylic case that would resemble a museum jewelry case that would house the Russian Crown Jewels for Anastasia's necklace.
This project was to create an invitation to a special even, that had at least 4 folds and an intricate and interesting die cut. I was inspired by the colors and fun atmostphere of the Indian Holi Festival.
This promotional book was done in Graphic Design Entrepreneurship, Fall 2014. This was a great way to learn about making long documents and also how to one day create a promotional book for myself and my own brand. I chose Landor because of their iconic images, and history of branding companies like Fedex, Melbourne, BP and more. I elected to die-cut their L on the front cover to show through to the bright Landor-Yellow end pages of my book. The book comes in an embossed case covered in book fabric.
One of my favorite series, the Ender's Game covers begged to be redesigned. A stereotypical "sci-fi" cover adorns each book in the series, and the books are often an introduction for many kids into the genre, so I wanted to make sure the series stood apart from the other look-alikes on book shelves.
I approached the redesign by applying a simple space background with a geometric representation of a heads-up display you might see in a video game. I chose a font that was a clean, modern relative to the stereotypical "video game font".
