CD and DVD cover packaging in the music and movie industries illustrates a more artistic approach to selling products. This approach which targets the die hard fans can often result in some of the wackier forms of cd or dvd cover packaging.
Only certain types of fan will go out and buy the special more expensive collector’s edition of a DVD box set. For this type of fan, the usual special features just aren’t quite enough and they expect their Special Edition DVD cover to be more than just a fancy box, something totally unexpected, possibly even a head full of DVDs.
Unusual DVD Cover Packaging
This gruesome package holds the 6 DVD’s of the Jackass Collector’s set made for Portugal.
Below we have the cover packaging for the Alien Quadrilogy Deluxe Limited Edition. Imagine waking up in the middle of the night with that sitting next to your DVD player.
The use of meat for CD and DVD cover packaging is not as unique as it once was. Several movies have used the meat concept in their packaging. It is almost conventional and usually predictable when used for horror or gore films like Texas Chainsaw Massacreor Saw.
Almost the same shape but not a head, the dvd cover for the The Big Lebowski 10th Anniversary Edition is shaped like a bowling ball. It splits apart to reveal the film and extras on two discs. An unusual but not very economical packaging solution in terms of space.
Food in Cover Packaging
This is the packaging design of Lithuanian musician Shidlas album named “Saliami Postmodern”. The CD is vacuumed like real salami and the sticker with the list of ingredients is similar to those of a real butcher shop. Although it is a creative idea, I still find it slightly tacky.
Food items, as we have seen above with the meat, have also been used with varying degrees of success. This Limited Edition of The Simpson’s as illustrated by this gooey pink donut is not one of the better ones.
