For this design, I really wanted to focus on a film noir design while using Rockstar's colors. It seemed appropriate since that was part of the game's inspiration. For the front, it based off an image from the game of Cole standing outside the Central Police Station with his shadow stretch ing outside of the image. I created a slight twist to the image by making it look more film noir, but making the person now an unknown figure with his shadow creating a crime scene.
For the back of the box, I wanted to also show the liveness of LA back in the 1940s through the performance of a singer on stage with a band in the background. And the way I setup up the type to the left can be read two ways; as one entire paragraph or as "a dark and violent crime thriller where everyone has something to hide."
Constructive criticism please.
