The main visual reference for the packaging of “Haunted” by May Roosevelt has been the black-figure pottery of ancient Greece, following the musical context of the album where the artist transforms eight Greek traditional dances, embedding anew Greek musical idioms within contemporary music. The design creates a sense of darkness and mystery.
On the cover the portrait of the artist is placed in the center of the meander labyrinth, both conveyed with copper foil embossing and relief printing. The same meander motif is repeated in the back side of the CD, this time with glossy varnish, illuminating the black color of the surface.
