This was the second CD design I worked on for musician Steve Case. This job required a simple single fold cardboard sleeve. The front and back cover were made to look like a leather bound book while the inside spread looked like the inside of the book cover. The inner-left panel contained a printed message from Steve Case while the inner-right panel allowed him to write a personal message (plus signature) for anybody who purchased a CD from one of his live performances.
I often use AppSumo to get great deals on graphic and development software. Now you can get $10 (after your first purchase) when you sign up at AppSumo too. Full disclosure, I also get $10.
