//12IN ALBUM VINYL COVER + INSERT
//7IN SINGLE VINYL COVER
A conceptual redesign of Christina Perri's Album: Head or Heart, and its accompanying single: Human.
HEAD OR HEART
As the title of the album and the single suggest, there is a play between human and machine. Both cover designs were inspired by this concept. In the design of the 12in. cover, the humanistic element is Christina's portrait, composed of mechanical EKG heart-beat patterns. Here, the human and machine collide, in a literal representation of "head" and "heart."
The design of the 7in. single meant to use some cohesive elements (EKG signals and the cursive lettering) from the album, with a unique approach to representing the human side. This was done through the use of the lines of a fingerprint, and the feel of a personal journal.
The lines of the thumbprint wrap around the outer layer of the packaging so that it is almost unrecognizable as a thumbprint until the packaging is fully opened, giving an element of discovery and surprise to the user’s experience.
