We want the front cover of our new album to be designed.
There are four main elements: Photo (supplied), band name (Altered
Five Blues Band) album title (Cryin' Mercy), and logo of the record
The cover trim size is standard but I will attached the exact specs
from the CD manufacturing company.
The band name ALTERED FIVE BLUES BAND can be treated in caps or
upper/lower case. The 'Blues Band' part can have less emphasis or be
smaller in size than 'Altered Five' but we're also open to all four
words being the same size. You can design it with a simple font or
with more flair. We don't have any particular band logo.
The album title CRYIN' MERCY is pretty straightforward.
I will upload an AI file (and PDF) of the OMNIVIBE RECORDS logo. The
color of it can change to match the colors of the photo/overall
design. We envision the record label logo being placed somewhere along
the bottom and not very large of course.
The cover photo is a close up shot of the band's singer. I will upload
two versions of the main photo image; one that is cropped
approximately how we envision it on the cover and another that gives
the full image in case you need it. We envision the photo being the
full cover, and not inset or with a border. Color-wise, it can stay
exactly the same and just lay the type on the white background.
This is a blues album but we are modern blues and do not specifically
want a retro feel to the type.
For reference, here's a link to the band's website:
http://www.alteredfive.com. Don't base the cover design on our
website, though, because we don't particularly like the type treatment
on our website because it's a few years old. The band includes five
male musicians and the music is sort of an edgy blues and soul.
