10"/CD Record Packaging
A grindcore band from Los Angeles, CA, Graf Orlock has been known to push the limits of record packaging. We came up with the idea of a transformable record cover that you could fold to create a 1990's era boombox.The challenge was to create a cover that could be easily shipped and sold in record stores. After many mock-ups and die line changes, it finally worked. I am very happy with how it came out and the response to the project has been amazing.
Here's what some other folks had to say about it...
"Maybe the most elaborate packaging we've seen. Graf Orlock's six-song grindcore EP comes on both 10" vinyl record and compact disc, both of which rest within a fold-out cardboard "boom box""
From Revolver Magazine
"...a 10-inch vinyl/double-CD packaging that unfolds into a full-size cardstock boombox. Call it what you want; we're calling it the first contender for Packaging of the Century."
From Terrorizer Magazine
"Speaking of overboard, Graf Orlock have always been recognized for their elaborate packaging endeavors, but Doombox pushes the goalposts back even further."
"...nothing the band has done in the past has ever compared to the astonishing new Doombox EP, which sees a ten-inch record housed in an elaborate sleeve that folds into a massive, 1:1 scale, 30” x 10” x 10” model of a circa-1990 boombox, complete with a CD tray on top that contains a disc of the EP as well as the entire Destination Time trilogy. To see it pictured online, your eyes pop, but once it’s assembled in front of you, you may find yourself picking your jaw up off the floor."
