A mulltimedia collaboration between PCA&D faculty and student for CD package design
March 3, 2014
The new album Thy Will by hardcore, punk group I Am Heresy, was released earlier this week. The creation of the album design is an example of true collaboration among professionals. PCA&D graphic design faculty member Tom Bejgrowicz managed the art direction, photography and design layout of the LP and CD packaging. The symbolic sculpture featured on the front and back covers was fabricated by Jeremy Waak, chair of the PCA&D foundation department, and PCA&D senior, photography major Kate Frese assisted on set during the cover shoot. It's quite common in the industry for the combined skills of multiple artists to come together and create a finished product. Throughout each major's curriculum, PCA&D students are exposed to similar opportunities of collaboration giving them real world experience. To see the full layout of the album and behind the scenes snapshots visit Man Alive Creative.
