Textual Analysis: Digipak

Textual Analysis: DigipakMorgan Redman






Colour SchemeBlue, black, white, sepia, red.Blue to connote sorrow and sadness, themes of songs in the compilation such as Heaven Knows Im Miserable Now.Black and white to imply the darker themes of society and belief systems. Sepia to convey the nostalgia of youth.Red and pink colourisation to imply danger, romanticism and being free.

Colour Scheme

Sepia colourisation to evoke nostalgia, blue connotationsRed, pink warm colourisation links to the romantic style of the music

LayoutNon-standard capitalisation, rule of thirds composition, large format images, diptych CD case inside, plastic inside casing, repeated cover image on booklet. The band name is placed in a significant position over the album title due to font size and the capitalisation of THE SMITHS. Large images take precedence in the booklet as there are too many song lyrics for a small leaflet with 45 songs.Dual CD is good for this number of songs but for a single only one would be needed and thus the layout is less significant.Repeated use of cover image on leaflet for impact.


Diptych disc layout with continuous background to link the layout together seamlessly

Rule of ThirdsBand name and compilation title in the centre third of the rule of thirds compositional grid. Band name in top central third due to the layout of the photograph as the cover image but also as the centre is the main focus of the eye of the receiver.
