Oh hai. I'd like to tell you all a life story, if you are not in the tl;dr mood.

Month 4, still in my designer's block, and hopefully relieved from it. For some deranged reason, a year after getting the Game Boy player for my Gamecube, I've decided that my startup disc needs a new home in a DVD case, possibly after I sorted my games on a shelf now instead of in a drawer.

Why did I make this decision a year later? Well, shut up. :p

The design is based off of the design of the PAL version of the cover, except modified to match the design aesthetics of the first party merchandise used in the packaging design last generation. There is no body text in the back since I felt it did not need it, but trying to not copy too much off of the PAL version, I instead applied the designs of a photo reel and the Gamecube acting out as a projector of some sort to show off the GameBoy player's obvious mode of operation.

The design is available as a printable as well. Comments and criticism are welcome. View full. kthnxbai. :3

I like this. I disliked that the startup disk has a tiny, translucent case.

It's weird to do something like this, though I guess no more weird than my Gamstop insert.

I like it, and I'd have much rather seen something like this packaged with the product than the nothing they gave us.

I really don't like this, sorry... The front is great, but the back seems really disorganised, and the colours clash a bit too much... The screenshots seem to just randomly be thrown in also.

#3, The screenshots are very reminiscent of ads and packaging done in the mid-90's.
