CD design ideas

Well it's getting pretty close to the funding date, and thanks to you guys we've now officially tripled the original goal! Amazing.

As we get closer to manufacturing the Shine CD I wanted to post some artwork ideas, and later perhaps some proofs. One idea I have is creating packaging in the style of early Penguin book covers, like the ones below. I like the immediacy of using only two or three colors and a rudimentary figure.

Perhaps the image on the cover could be a boy in a sailboat (like in the video), in blue, black and white, for example. Right now blue feels like the right color for Shine. If you want to see some more Penguin book examples, someone has collected a whole bunch of them here.
