CD Packaging: Forrest Day


Artist: Forrest Day
Album: Forrest Day
Label: Ninth Street Opus Records
Concept:  Forrest Day
Model: Lisa Gemmiti
Year: 2011

The Bay-area bandleader who released his self-titled full-length debut came up with the design and enlisted world-renown model builder Lisa Gemmiti to help execute the album art.

The cover of the digipak features a jumper on the ledge of a building while reams of onlookers gawk.

“I was trying to capture the notion that America has a very voyeuristic attitude about tragedy. The figure on the building isn’t actually a jumper, he’s just trying to stay above the fray and set himself apart. It’s darkly humorous and represents the tragicomic vibe of my album,” explains Day.”
