Throwback Thursday: The Britt Lloyd Band / Unlabeled

Thursday, October 10th, 2013

It’s so much fun pulling these old packaging designs out of the archives to shine a little light on them. This classic Backstage Design Studio gem was for The Britt Lloyd Band‘s 2006 debut record, “Unlabeled”. (co-produced by our good friend Adam Odor)

Stop by Lone Star Music to order a copy, today! Or, if you must download, it’s also available on iTunes.

Throwback Thursday: Cody Gill Band / Boxcars

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013

Cody Gill Band’s debut record, Boxcars, was one of our first packaging designs, and remains one of our favorites. The ornamental design on the front cover was pulled from a vintage book cover, with the addition on two strategically placed dice showing double sixes, or “Boxcars”. Also, each of the background textures were derived from vintage books in the Dodds vintage book collection.  Every scratch, fold, scuff, dirt or other gritty gem is authentic and from an old book sittin’ on the shelf at home.

You can download Boxcars on iTunes or pick up a hardcopy over at Lone Star Music!
