CD Packaging of the Week: Celer, Opitope (Spekk)


Artist 1-4: Opitope; 5-10: Celer
Title 1-4: “Physis”; 5-10: Zigzag
Label Spekk
Year: 2014
Design 1-4: paintings by Shinji Miyazawa; all: design by Mondii
Music Electronic, ambient, ethereal, reflectiveThe CDs carefully wrapped in Japanese newspaper. The design of these two new releases feature a slightly changed format that is more square and solid. It’s a little larger than a standard CD jewel case and although significantly smaller, it feels more like a gatefold 7″ single sleeve. As a result it has a real sense of presence.

Spekk’s founder Nao Sugimoto said:

I wanted to change the packaging as the old one didn’t feel fresh anymore, and plus the former packaging was just too expensive. I thought about using regular digipaks because that way, I can release more without thinking of the budget, but that didn’t feel right either as the point of this label is to run by pure passion.
