The business partner, liasons between vendor (in this case, Prime Student) and brand (Spotify), provided these product assets and photograph. The photograph was intended as an example, to appeal for a similar 'look and feel'. Products were provided to create top-down layout. Typography and color were restricted to the Prime Student styleguide–internal to Amazon only– consists in part of Proxima Nova typography and Prime blue as a primarily color, expressed in these designs.
For the innitial draft, lifestyle photography mimicking the example given was requested to be utilized. I sourced photography that matched both the look and feel of Prime Student, as well as the aspirational example provided. Upon presentation of this first draft, the business partner decided trying to fit both lifestyle imagery and product photography was not a good direction, as to keep everything to scale, the products were forced to become too small. Therefor, we moved on to a 'product only' collage style.
