Forgotten Sketches Alan Kushan
CD cover

I designed the whole package, and created all images except the photo portraits, and a floral motif from an old Persian Painting. This was heaviliy illustrated.

The priorities: Create a warm mystical keepsake to showcase the poetry and stories that compliment the music.

Note: Rich muted colors were used to soften and gently organize the content, and echo the disparate themes and images. Dramatic and tragic themes are made palettable with visual metaphors and sensitive placement. Blowing leaves and subdued colors of nature weave throughout the packaging, as well as ancient floral patterns and textiles.
