This really looks great for a circular design man! smile.gif Having said that, you should plan the hole in the middle, the face looks great like this, but not sure if it will be visible on the CD itself.

you could also make a secondary face beneath the cd with some paper. i
ve seen them more like that

edit : not some paper but I mean ofcourse a double sided backpaper of the cd.

Good point! I'd have to print all the way to center hole which might end up being a problem. I might end up using it for cover art (icon/jacket/file) and do something else on the physical cd face.

Thats the idea smile.gif Sort of combining the Mayan calender with a clock to show time ticking away smile.gif Yeah, I do graphics motion graphics work and visual fx as a freelancer. It's fun stuff!

Here is my FX/Graphics Demo Reel. I hope to do more of this type of work this year.

Thanks smile.gif I worked at a placed called "Turner Broadcasting" here for a while and we did lots of stuff for a cable channel called "Cartoon Network". It was fun work. Felt more like play smile.gif Many of the clips are from my time there. The team was very good and we even won an Emmy Award (big time trophy here in the states for TV work)
