Back in the summer of 2000, we designed cover graphics and a CD sleeve for the album “The College Hill Compilation” by our good friend Vee Yuttanant Boonyongmareerat. Longer than his last name was his credit in the album; he composed, produced, arranged, and performed nearly all of the songs in the album!
For the front cover, we took photos of the College Hill (Brown University) and turned them into a monochromic dreamscape in which the details of the surroundings were blurry, yet the memories of people were forever clear.
On the back cover, credits and song details were thrown together in a way that was intentionally disorderly. The compilation album, with songs written in different decades and performed by people in different corners of the world, was put together that way, too.
Perhaps the coolest part of this work was how the whole CD sleeve can be made out of just one piece of paper with the graphics printed on one side. We designed the master layout such that it can be printed out, cut, folded, glued, and — VOILÀ! — turned into a protective sleeve for the CD. Cool, right? Why, thank you!
