100 CD Packaging Album Art Concepts

CDs have been around for over thirty years. Just like any printed medium in an evolving, digitalized world, people discuss CDs becoming obsolete just like the vinyl records of the seventies. Even if CD packages did become paperless, the need for bold, creative, and eye-catching design would never diminish.

Graphic Design Students at FIDM / Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising are required to take the class “Brand-X” where students investigate the visual and physical personality of a current brand and develop an effective visual identity for it, utilizing all applicable marketing materials. For this project, students chose a band or artist and then redesigned one of their albums.

We have gathered 100 CD packaging redesign concepts from recent FIDM Graphic Design graduates for your inspiration.
