How Lindsey Ray started their other graphic design journey
My name is Lindsey Ray and I'm an independent singer/songwriter living in Los Angeles, getting ready to release a 6 song EP to sell online and at my live shows. I play the piano and my music is fun quirky singer/songwriter pop. The songs on the EP are are all very lighthearted and optimistic, think Feist meets Sara Bareilles. You can visit my myspace music page to hear for yourself: http://www.myspace.com/lindseyraymusic

The front cover of the EP needs to have my name "Lindsey Ray" on it. I'm going to be naming the EP after one of my songs titled "Picture Perfect" so I'd also like to have "Picture Perfect" somewhere on the cover in smaller lettering than my name. The back cover would need to have the track listing which is as follows:
1.) Picture Perfect
3.) Strange World
4.) You Make Me Happy
5.) The Monkey and the Tree
6.) Goodbye From California
I don't want to give too many specific requirements because as an artist I know it can be better to not have too many restrictions. I encourage anyone interested in this opportunity to listen to the music on my Myspace page to get inspired and come up with something that matches the feel of my music. I can tell you that I consider myself a very sunny colorful gal and I'd love for the art to be colorful and fun as well without looking childish. I like an organic feel with nature references ( grass, leaves, sun, etc) I also prefer something that looks handmade, drawn, etc as opposed to a print or stock image.
Although I do have pictures of myself on my myspace I am not looking for a cover with my picture on it so don't bother yourself with that. I've given links to examples of album covers I like on the main page so check those out. Thanks and good luck!
