We're looking for a catchy cover for a music library of world/ethnic percussion loops. The loops are Eastern sounding, Arabic, Middle Eastern, and North African. All drums, no melodic instruments. We're thinking about earthtone colors with a percussion-centric focus with a classic, professional, and artistic look. Nothing too flashy or cheesy.
Big Fish Group makes sample libraries for musicians, producers, composers and the like. 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's an example of something in this genre: Example Product
The cover of "Earth Tone: World Percussion" should have a very eye-catching setting for that title first and foremost. We want this design to communicate World/Ethnic percussion to our customers in a creative and artistic way. It's very earthy, organic, raw, and live-sounding. You may want to use some kind of ethnic drum artwork in there.
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.
