DVD Cover Look-Alikes

Unified Manufacturing_similar DVD cover10

ShareSure there are tons of DVD cover artwork that look alike but the ones below deserve to win the “Similarity is Uncanny!” awards in DVD packaging. The similarities of the DVD artworks are so obvious that we can’t help but wonder whether the designer of the less popular films intended it to confuse the consumers, […]

DVD Packaging: Dexter Evidence Bag

Unified manufacturing_dexter_packaging10

ShareThis DVD packaging of Dexter is another proof that their promotion guys are really working hard to create a brand for this hit TV series.  Do you still remember the fresh “human arm”  they placed in a grocery store in Spain? Or the bloody fountain in LA? Undoubtedly, these guys are experts in branding. This […]

Share This is the very popular cover of Herp Alpert’s album, Whipped Cream and Other Delights.  I find the cover quite tacky and awkward but I dunno… it may be one of the sexiest album covers in the sixties. Whether people find it tacky,funny, sexy, or sweet, there’s no doubt that it gathered a lot […]

DVD Packaging and Customer Purchase Decisions

img00146-20091124-1053

Share Maybe because of financial or time constraints, we do not give much attention to how we package our DVD. We just choose a decent photo for the artwork, a plain-looking case, and a good set of trays. After all, what matters most is what’s inside, right? What matters most is the content-the film! Yes, […]

DVD Packaging: Band of Brothers Military Kit

12

ShareThis Band of Brothers Military Kit is by far the most elaborate (but still sophisticated) Limited Edition DVD packaging I’ve seen. It is a replica of a Military Kit that contains a big digipack, numerous replica maps/leaflets, dogtags and a numbered card. What I love about it is that the whole packaging doesn’t look like […]
