CD Packaging: Album Art with Cigarettes


Smoking is a controversial thing for some, a normal thing for others. Some smoke to push their creative button, some smoke to relieve stress and frustration, some smoke to look cool, some smoke just because they have nothing to do with their hands, and of course…there are those who smoke because they cannot not smoke. Although everybody says smoking is bad and that it’s a thing of the past, it’s still here and it’s still a big part of society.

So for this week’s CD Packaging concepts, I’ve compiled (make a wild guess, folks! yup you got it)…album art with cigarettes and smoking people in it.

When I was in college, we tried to stay away from including cigarettes and smoking in our designs and projects because one professor said it’s too cliche and pretentious. Well, I do not think it’s like that when the concept is good and it is done properly. Check out these CD art and decide which ones are too cliche, pretentious, and which ones look just right.
