John Etnier, Studio Dual's owner, has a second, important skill, honed by over twenty years experience in graphic design. He has designed newspapers, advertising, posters and other materials, and has created CD, LP and cassette packaging and posters for countless recording artists. He's also designed the websites for Studio Dual and several other clients.

At Studio Dual we are fully conversant with desktop publishing technology, and maintain a powerful Power Macintosh G4 system with all the major software, quality scanners and thousands of fonts.

In the section below you'll see the inside story on several of our CD design projects. Clicking on the thumbnails will deliver lots of information on that cover's creation. Clicking leads you to .pdf* files (from 96K to 576K in size), or in some cases to special web pages.

*.pdf's use the widely-distributed Acrobat Reader plug-in. Click here for more information about .pdf's.
