Black Star 

Deliverable: Package, Sleeve, Vinyl
Type: Experimental Design

Black Star is a song from Radiohead’s second album, The Bends. In this project, the song is released individually on a small vinyl and is stored in a sleeve. The sleeve is stored inside a large packaging consisting of interactivity that metaphorically conveys the song. 

The package also comes with a lyric artbook, which shows the lyrics in dynamic art. Inside the packaging, thorns covered almost every side of the box, symbolizing the spouse feeling trapped. The sleeve is covered with glass cracks over the characters to represent a breaking relationship. On the vinyl are blackthorns sprouting in the shape of a black star. The art book contains typographic art visualizing the lyrics.
