Spinal Tap’s ‘Back from the Dead’ Grammy-Nominated for Best Packaging

Designer Brian Porizek has been nominated for the Best Packaging for his stand up work for Spinal Tap‘s ‘Back from the Dead,’ which features fold-out cardboard figurines of the legendary sort-of-fictional metal band.

“There’s so many talented artists out there creating album art,” Porizek told Noisecreep. “I’ve seen some amazing packages over the years. I am very honored to be recognized by the Recording Academy for this, and especially to be along side the other nominees who all have done such great work.”

With digital music penetrating the market more and more, bands, labels and especially designers are stepping up their game to get their product noticed. “I feel the need to offer music fans added value, something more than just the standard CD jewel case configuration,” Porizek said of his design for ‘Back from the Dead’. “It has to be something that you want to keep or keep as a collector’s item. With dwindling sales, it’s just an added bonus that I can add as a designer.

The Grammys will be held on Jan. 31 in Los Angeles.
