UPDATE 9/24: We're pleased with the submissions to date, but would be particularly interested in seeing submissions which are a little more on the abstract side, instead of the standard stock photo of a violin. We've got enough "concrete" designs -- now we'd like to see some more abstract ones.
The title of the product is "Masters Series String Ensembles" and the subtitle is "large ensembles and chamber strings"
The artwork should include imagery of string instrument(s) (such as violin, viola, cello, or double bass). It should look expensive, classy, and simple.
It is very important to make the title prominent and clear. Attention should be given to a nice rendering of the title.
Here are a few designs of current products we really like:
You can also see a few of our many past 99designs contests to get an idea of things we like:
The design can be created using any graphics program(s) you like, but we would like final delivery in PSD or PNG format, layered, at 300dpi. It will be used as the front cover of the DVD case. Dimensions are 5.1" x 7.2" with 0.125" (1/8") bleed. The use of stock photography is acceptable within a reasonable price range. If you choose stock photography, feel free to use the preview (watermarked) image in your mockup, and we will overlook it during the contest's duration, then will purchase it if you are the winner of the contest.
