Lil Wayne “I Am Not A Human Being 2″ Album Packaging Concept
Alright guys…so above is the updated version of my previously posted IANAHB2 cover. Made a few things pop out a bit more, added a few small details. I think it looks better now. But this post isn’t about the cover…it’s about what’s below this paragraph. I completed my entire concept for PACKAGING for Wayne’s upcoming album! This is one of the best things I’ve ever done. Keep reading below and check it all out!!!
NOTE: THIS PACKAGING IS BASED OF THE WAY 2CHAINZ “BASED ON A TRU STORY” DELUXE EDITION WAS PACKAGED.
So this was my idea for the back cover. Obviously we don’t have the track list, so I just put XXXXXXX for each song as well as the lead single “My Homies Still”. But that’s besides the point. Notice the alien Wayne on mars in the background. And I tried to match the cover as far as colors, lighting, etc. go. Packaging really all needs to have unity.
This is just the first thing you see when you flip open the cover. Simple, but goes with the rest of the concept and plan. Not much to this.
So above(Click to view full quality) is the inside of the tri-fold packaging. I feel this tied together the whole project. This is the first time you see Wayne’s actual face and it’s as ‘alien’ as can be. Again it goes with the rest of the packaging. UNITY. Like the 2Chainz packaging; the CD would be in a pocket to the right of the separation line on the right of the above image, and the booklet would be on the left.
Alright and lastly is my favorite part. I really would love to see this implemented. It’s glow in the dark ink filling in the LIL WAYNE and I AM NOT A HUMAN BEING 2 text on the front cover. Like Wayne’s black light tattoos as seen in the ‘I Am Not A Human Being’ video you couldn’t see this effect in stores…but rather at night when the real martians come out to play. It’s just a fun gimmick that’s not been done before but goes along with the theme.
Leave a comment and let me know what you think! 2nd IANAHB2 single later today…and DEDICATION 4!!!
