* A trend in DVD and Blu-ray cover art as of TheNewTens seems to be reissuing animated films (and some live-action ones as well) with the cover art consisting only of the film's title and a close-up of the main character's head over a solid color background. Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox started this trend with its reissues of some acquired Creator/DreamWorksAnimation titles and Creator/BlueSkyStudios films, among others, with Creator/{{Disney}} getting the hint to re-release some of its [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon animated films]] and Creator/{{Pixar}} titles in this way, and Creator/{{Universal}} following suit with the Creator/{{Laika}} films, the Creator/DonBluth [[WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail films that]] [[WesternAnimation/TheLandBeforeTime they produced]], and, interestingly, some live-action comedies ''[[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids not]]'' [[Film/HappyGilmore aimed]] [[Film/LiarLiar towards]] [[Film/BillyMadison children]]. Creator/{{Sony}} and Creator/WarnerBros also got the hint to do so with their catalogs, though in the latter's case, it only applies to digital releases.

* Music/{{Obituary}}'s self-titled 2017 album features the band's logo, in gold with a bit of touch-up, against an entirely black background. Particularly notable in a genre (DeathMetal) that normally goes for hyper-elaborate, frequently {{Gorn}}-laden album art, something Obituary themselves have done before.[[note]]their previous album, ''Inked In Blood'', featured the band logo carved into the chest of a dismembered, decapitated corpse, rendered in loving detail by the artist, with the album name in blood on the table the corpse is on; previous covers are similarly elaborate, if sometimes less gory[[/note]]
