Although the connection between the title of this album and the music on it is not easily recognized, “The Shape of Sounds” provided a great opportunity to get creative with grids, layouts, and color.
Using 14 different colors (one color for each song) and many shapes, an inviting and playful package was created. A color/shape-coded key let’s the listener engage with the sleeve in a way that doesn’t normally happen, but was also a solution to crediting 18 instruments played by 10 different people.
The package is a 6-panel digipack with a 3-color silkscreened disc face knocked out to allow the silver disc surface to come through. A complimentary PDF file with the lyrics was also created and can be downloaded from Claire’s website.
