How vir2instruments started their print or packaging design journey
Big Fish Audio is releasing it's latest product, Chill 2, a downtempo, jazzy, electronica, techy type music library and we need a cover to complete the look. Think "cool, laid back, chilled" for your designs.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
The cover should reflect the style of music represented in the library, which is cool, contemporary, laid-back, chill-out, lounging kind of music. Blues and cool tones may be a plus in this contest.
This particular library is part of the Chill Series, you can get an idea of what the first volume looked like here: Chill: Downtempo Loops and Beats
The design can be created using any graphics program(s) youlike, 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. Dimensionsare 5.1" x 7.2" with 0.125" (1/8") bleed.The use of stock photography is acceptable within a reasonable pricerange. We aren't looking to break the budget on a piece of stockphotography but if it works with the overall design we are looking forand the price is right then we are OK with it. If you choose stockphotography, feel free to use the preview (watermarked) image in yourmockup, and we will overlook it during the contest's duration, thenwill purchase it if you are the winner of the contest so that the covercan be rendered properly. Please make sure that if you are picked the winner that you include the fonts used in your design with the design file.
