Originally, our distributor sent us their ideas for DVD covers (bottom smaller images.) We didn’t love them. I had a series of posters envisioned that rhymingly juxtaposed Nature & Development. (Construction Crane vs Butterfly emerging from Cocoon [SHOWN], Spider Web vs Aerial of Subdivision Roads, etc.)
I sent the proposed concept (Big image) for the cover. But distributor firmly wanted a House on the cover. I understood the reasoning, the Subprime Crisis had just started. But I never really loved the Cancer Map vs the Swimming Kid image that became the official cover.
