Catchy cover design is needed for a music library of downtempo house music. The music has a very current sound with a loungin' house type feel. Some of it even has echoes of R&B and pop. It's what would happen if Timbaland and a top house producer got together to make an album.
The project is called "Mirrorball: Silky House Music"
Big Fish Group makes sample libraries for musicians, producers, composers and the like. Our products are sold to a niche market in the music industry. We are looking for a product cover that will be eye catching and clean that will immediately portray the vibe of the music content being sold to our customers.
Here is a link to our a product from our company that will give a little bit better of an Idea of what we want: Example Product
The cover of "Mirrorball: Silky House Music" should have a very eye-catching setting for that title first and foremost. In addition a mirror ball should be incorporated into the artwork. We'd like the mirror ball use to be very abstract however. You shouldn't look at it and know right away that it is in fact a dance floor mirror ball. Besides that, we are just looking for creativity and a cover that gives off the right feel for this library. It's not in-your-face annoying pounding house music. It's a little slower a little sexier and therefore shouldn't have an in-your-face disco ball
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. 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. We aren't looking to break the budget on a piece of stock photography but if it works with the overall design we are looking for and the price is right then we are OK with it. 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 so that the cover can be rendered properly.
- Creative artwork conveying downtempo house music, and probably including some kind of abstract shot of a mirror glitter ball.
