DVD Covers

Print Design

These DVD covers and disc labels were created for the  docu-drama series Final 24, distributed by MVD Visual. Final 24 films are psychological detective stories attempting to uncover the mystery of why the celebrity died using interviews with loved ones and confidantes combined with high-end dramatic re-enactments and archival material illuminate these compelling life (and death) stories. I designed approximately 15 DVD covers and disc labels. One of the challenges for this project was to design a front cover that prominently featured a face, which helps increase sales. However, all the images available featured actors portraying famous people. The solution I came up with involved using images of the actors with their face slightly obscured or turned. This met the business requirement of using a face to generate consumer interest but de-emphasized the fact that these were actors recreating a famous person’s last moments.
