I had a great time going through archival photos and creating vintage elements for the 28-page booklet/package + vinyl release of Beautiful.  My favorite details are probably the “Top Ten list” track list, the orchestra page, and the “mini-45″ disc face.  With these cast recording projects, I’m given the show’s key art (essentially what’s on the marquee at the theater), a huge folder of production photos, and a Word document w/ all of the text.  Then I’m free to run wild (thanks to the folks at Ghostlight!).  Based on the style of the key art, set design, and color scheme, I create a gazillion little details that help the booklet to be just as special a souvenir as the recording itself.  COVER ART: Serino/Coyne
