DIGITAL SINGLE COVER DESIGN
• create cover for an Indie Pop-Rock single.
• I'm looking for your take on the title "I Yield."
• The song is a moody, driving "arena rock" anthem about someone getting ready to lower his defenses, risk getting hurt, and allow himself to love honestly & fully for the first time. He's almost ready to "yield" to love but not quite there. Although he's giving up his past ways, he is not defeated. There is a spirit of triumph to giving himself over to what comes next.
• Here's a more positive definition of what it means to "yield":
comply with, agree to, consent to, go along with
grant, permit, allow, accede
• Here's a more negative definition of what it means to "yield":
give way to arguments, demands, or pressure
surrender, capitulate, submit, relent, admit defeat
back down, climb down, give in give up the struggle
lay down one's arms, raise/show the white flag, throw in the towel
cave in, give way to, submit to, bow down to
• If it would help you to hear the song, please check it out at http://www.kevinbeadles.com/music/iyield.mp3
• NO HEARTS, NO SKULLS or anything gruesome. Such images were used on my last 2 singles. I'd like something different this time.
• NO GUITARS
• NOTHING CUTESY. Illustrated is good but avoid cartoonish
I think I'm looking for something:
• More representational (see examples of images I'll upload to the Design Brief in a few minutes)
• Hopeful or almost triumphant representation of yielding. There's victory in giving up on false pride or fear.
• Include the Artist Name, KEVIN BEADLES, large
enough to be easily read on a small phone screen
(please see http://www.kevinbeadles.com/music for examples of appropriate font size on recent singles).
• Include the Song Title, I YIELD (same guideline as above for
appropriate font size).
• Upper & lower case letters can be used as you choose for the Artist Name and Song Title
• TECHNICAL SPECS (please PAY ATTENTION TO THESE)
