It must be the season for interesting, off-the-beaten-path Jewelboxing projects, as it seems like we’ve been receiving word of a lot of unique cases lately. So it is with Dean Cooper, a designer from the UK, about packaging a film he made about he and his friend’s trip to Cuba several years back. While we haven’t seen the film, based on Dean’s work with the case, we’re guessing that it’s more than equal in its skill and attention to detail (as an aside: Dean, can you make a poster out of the cover and tray art, so we can buy it and hang it on our wall?) Here’s a little about his process in putting the project together:
“I bought my Jewelboxing cases over a year ago but have only just got round to using them on a personal project that I’ve only just completed. A film of a trip to Cuba that me and a friend had in 2001 a lot of work went into editing the DVD and the Jewelboxing cases finish the project off beautifully. I found scans of a child’s sticker book produced just after the revolution on Flickr and used these 1960’s graphics as the basis for my design. I found the templates easy to use and the paper good quality.”
Here’s to hoping the revolution is beginning to take root in Des Plains, La Grange, Honolulu, Seattle, Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Fayetteville, Naples, Burlington, White Plains, Denver, Fairfield, San Jose, Fort Worth, San Francisco, Oak Park, Cambridge, Irvine, North Vancouver, Redmond, Clio and Middletown.
