CD Packaging: Effortless Face Portraits


Most of us wrack our brains out just to come up with a catchy design for our CD packaging but I do not think these guys are like most of us. Check out these effortless CD covers that really kick  ass.

Vampire Weekend- Contra

Look at that. It’s just like an old polaroid photo from your mom’s treasure box. This is actually a picture of 80-90s image model Ann Kirsten Kennis and ,apparently, the band used it without permission. Kennis was flattered at first but then she realized how improper it is for the band to use her picture.

“Who do these people think they are that they can just take my picture from god only knows where and plaster it everywhere?”

A $2 million misappropriation-of-image lawsuit in Los Angeles against Vampire Weekend, Tod Brody, and the band’s London-based label, XL Recordings.

St. Vincent- Actor

Annie Clark, the musician otherwise known as St. Vincent, projects an aura of eerie perfection–her wide eyes and porcelain features give her the appearance of a cartoon princess come to life.

Weezer- Hurley


This guy is not a member of the band.  He’s not their manager either. He is Jorge Garcia, who plays Hurley from Lost (the TV series).

“We just wanted to use that picture of Jorge Garcia’s face on the cover. It’s such an amazing album cover, and we didn’t want to have any other words on it, so we just figured everyone was going to call it Hurley, so that’s what we call it.”A for effort! I sure hope Weezer had a good talk with Garcia before they plastered his face on their CD.

Bob Hund- Let the Stone Age Begins

One of my favorite effortless CD covers. Reminds me of my days in high school.

Weezer- Blue Album

Not a face portrait but has the same kind of effortless touch to it. Weezer’s debut album released in 1994. 2 Points for Weezer!
