MIKI MATSUBARA CD BOXSET
80S JAPANESE CITY POP
People may know her by the popular song, Mayonaka No Door / Stay With Me. After listening to this song on loop for almost 50 times, I decided that she deserved to be a part of one of my projects that college semester.
MIKI MATSUBARA, SHE'S A CLASSIC!
EXPANDING MY MUSIC HORIZONS
I decided to create a series of albums, her top three, after listening to more of her songs. These would showcase a design resembling her time period; the 80s.
Listening to music and designing, or creating in general, really influences the final product! The font of these albums are definitely getting in the funk.
GET IN THE FUNK!
AN UNFORGETABLE IDOL
Miki's performances were always so lively, which helped me liven up my designs for these CD covers!
To give a hint of Japanese culture, I decided to create an origami-like structure to hold and display the CDs.
A TRIBUTE TO A CITY POP QUEEN
Unfortunately, Miki passed away in 2004, but her songs continue to live on today. Take a listen to her songs! A queen like her deserves more recognition.
