Haezer

Haezer is known for his solid bass sound, epic breaks with well polished effects. Its the sort of sound that comes off as just straight forward dance music, but on closer inspection or listening you’ll start to discover multiple layers of frequencies within the finished product. For the creative concept and execution the challenge was to simulate the audio experience known as Haezer. The artwork style is not at all the typical dance music style, thus making Haezer a genre of his own.

Paths of Light

The best way to hold the short animation Paths of Light by Zina Caramelo was to ensure that the DVD had a beautiful case to match. The packaging actually looks like it was plucked from the woods and moulded to form a CD. On the outside, various lines are visible, almost appearing as small trees growing up the side of the case. The wooden exterior also helps to give it an extremely naturalistic look. Paths of Light is an extreme update from the cases many saw for CDs in the 1990s, which usually consisted of basic plastic with a paper package to explain the contents inside.(text by J. D. Munro)
