Entertainment & The Arts
7 song CD containing 2 Latin dance tunes and 5 alt country and rock tunes.
What's your vision?
I want a 4 panel CD cover design for my CD "Just Like This". (See Template 139 attached for details of the layout). Keywords: Modern, Beautiful, Artistic, Surprising, Creative, Feeling of depth and space, Some colors (reds or oranges likely and greens blues) Overall design: I want the cover to inspire listening. The music if pretty upbeat overall. There are two Latin style dance tunes (a salsa and a bachata tune) and 5 tunes that are fairly alt country and one jazz tune. I recommend listening to the songs to get a sense of the music. Here is a link. https://soundcloud.com/eric-bray-4/sets/carry-on Photos of me should NOT be the main focus. The beautiful design and artwork should be the focus. The photo of me on the front cover can be somewhat transparent and more in the background. The overall design should spread across the 4 panels: 1) front panel, 2) inside left panel 3) inside right panel, 4) back panel. 5) physical CD - There is also need for a design on the physical CD itself. To get some ideas for CD I have created some Pinterest Boards you can check out: Photos of me to use - https://www.pinterest.jp/ericbray23/photos-of-me-for-cd-design/ CDs Covers I like - https://www.pinterest.jp/ericbray23/cd-covers-i-iike/ Designs I like - https://www.pinterest.jp/ericbray23/art-design-i-like-for-my-cd-just-like-this/ Here are some ideas about what might be on each of the 4 panels and the CD. 1) Front cover panel: My name, album title and a photo of me (probably headshot or upper body standing with hands out) but with the artistry of the cover the focus. The title "Just Like This" can be expressed by my photo holding my hands out..the idea being - This is what you get. Simplicity yet modern. Text: Eric Bray Just Like This 2) Left inside panel: Art design continues from front panel. Maybe another photo or not…perhaps a photo of me singing (see Pinterest photos at top). No text 3) Right inside panel: Art design continues. No photo Text: All songs written by Eric Bray Production and music: Leonardo Garcia (Tracks 1, 3) Eric Butterfield (Tracks 4, 5, 6, 7) Billy Ziogas (Track 2) Special thanks to: Akira Kondo: Bass (Track 5) Gary Tegler: Saxophone (Track 7) Dale Ward: Photos and Guitar (Track 7) CD design: © 2021 Eric Bray. All rights reserved. 4) Back cover panel – song titles and times and photo of me standing with guitar (see Pinterest photos a the top of the page with me on roof holding the guitar. I suppose background needs to be cut out. hair trimmed a bit as it was a windy day) Text: (Track names and times should be different fonts) 1 Carry On 4:31 2 The Ballad of Jimmy and Judy 3:39 3 Love You Enough (Bachata) 4:22 4 Just Like This 3:59 5 Dance the Night Away 4:24 6 Why Why Baby, Goodbye? 3:59 7 Love You Enough (Jazz) 4:48 5) CD – No photo just a related art design.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their album cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
ericbray23 collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Beautiful design and Gabriela is very easy to work with. There were a lot of adjustments and changes to get the design finished and Gabriela was patient and receptive to feedback.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
