The front 2 pages of this digi-pack for the rock band AC/DC contains a group photo of the band members on the front. This photo has got a dark shadow around the edge to maintain the dark meaning of the band. The poses of the band members are quite serious but at the same time quite jokey which allows the audience to be told that they are a fun band. The name of the band is at the top of the page and in the centre, the colour is red with a yellow outline. This makes it stand out, and matches the connotations of the lightning bolt which is put in between the Ac and the DC. The font is very pointy and is made 3D by using reflection effects on each letter. At the bottom of the front cover is the name of the album which is put into the same font but a yellow colour which still matches the colour scheme of the cd cover. On the spine of the digi-pack it says the bands name in white on a black background and the name of the album in yellow again. The white on black font makes the name of the band stand out again and the yellow of the album name creates cohesion throughout the album front cover.
The back of the album cover has got a long shot of the band in a desolate area with smoke behind them. The main guitarist is pulling a screaming/laughing face which is making him stand out, he is the well known member of the band for their audience. The clothing of the band is representing the rock genre but there is also the school boy outfit which is his signature outfit. The singer of the band is dressed in flares and a blazer, this is unusual to the typical representation of rock music bands, but they were around in the 70’s/80’s where this fashion was popular. The photo is in black and white which gives the picture an enigma as to where they might be and also gives a dark meaning. The members of the band are all giving direct address to the camera which is attracting their audience. They have a track list at the top of the back page of the digi-pack. The track list is written in the same font as the album name on the front cover, this gives the album cover cohesion. The track list is black on white background which also makes it stand out and easy to read for the audience. The back of the cd cover also has the record label written above the barcode, this is reinforcing the bands label.
This is the inside of the cd album. As you can see on the left hand side is an image of the band together and the main guitarist is throwing paint out of a paint bucket. This is reinforcing that the band know how to have fun but is also emphasising the immaturity of Angus Young (the guitarist) which is known by the fans of the band. In this image the band are not dressed particularly rock like but with AC/DC they were always wearing jeans rather than the stereotypical leather jacket etc. This is due to the time they were around before rock was a big thing. There is a split in this section where inside is a small booklet of the bands lyrics to their songs. This booklet has the same front cover as this cd cover which allows for continuity of colour schemes.
The right hand side of this image is where the CD goes. Underneath this section is an image of Angus Young again playing the guitar with sweaty hair. This is emphasising his effort and devotion to playing well for his fans. Angus Young is the main focus of this band as he is a well known member of the band. Unlike most bands where the singer is the favourited and most recognised, with AC/DC it is the main guitarist which is why they have chosen to have him feature in every image on the Digi-pack.
Looking into this Digi-Pack instead of on the internet helped me see what I need to do for my own digi-pack for my band. This is a good Digi-pack as it emphasises the band as a whole and also reinforces the main member of the band as they are most recognised and so will help to sell the albums. It is emphasising the rock genre as the band are pulling faces and acting immaturely which is similar to most rock bands.
