Evolving Sound is a newly formed specialist trailer-music label, which delivers high-end music for film trailers and other dramatic media.
What's your vision?
This is the first of three album covers we need designing. These three albums make up our launch catalogue of premium orchestral, electronic and hybrid trailer music. The album in question is called 'Spiked'. It features a selection of electronic tracks from great trailer-music composers, ranging from dark, moody sound design, to abrasive, ear-splitting percussion, to moody, scandic-style evolving pieces. All are designed specifically for use on trailers, TV, film and games.
We have very high production standards in our music, and would like the artwork on our albums to reflect this. The industry generally uses digital and usually 3D art for it's covers, and we would propose to do the same. However, it's really important that the quality of any 3D design is really polished. We have a slightly futuristic, slightly sci-fi concept in mind, which evokes a dark, moody atmosphere via a strongly presented central subject, perhaps set against a semi-abstract or dystopian or apocalyptic backdrop. The 'Spiked' title should not be interpreted visually too literally, but there might be the suggestion of jagged edges or the hint of some spiked forms somewhere in the imagery. We also would like the Evolving Sound logo to appear 'within' the design, rather than being pasted onto the surface of the cover. For example, it could be etched into a rock in the background, or might appear as a tattoo or branded mark on a subject. The logo doesn't need to be eye-catching, just present somewhere in the image. Imagery should be dark, futuristic and moody, but not shocking or 'horror' related. We will probably also want to include a short sub-title below the title (e.g Evocative Electronic Trailers - or similar) and possibly the Evolving Sound name for brand continuity. If we can establish a relationship with an artist who delivers a great piece of work for this concept, and demonstrates fantastic 3D abilities, we would be inclined to then also use them for the other 2 albums straight away. Our general mood board is here: https://uk.pinterest.com/bromley0710/album-covers-1/ (this is very general, a little too 'horror' in some cases, but the better quality images here are the kind of quality we are looking for, and the tone and feel of much of this imagery is also what we're after). We also have a couple of examples of slightly more relevant images here: https://uk.pinterest.com/bromley0710/spiked/ (a couple of these are not great quality, but give a very vague impression of some concepts which are very roughly appropriate. That said these should not be followed too closely - none of these images are quite right, merely evocative of something that could work). Our logo is attached.

Rafido is a true artist. I had some examples to start with, and he ran with it and created something I could not even imagine. Communication was outstanding as well.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
