I am creating a 5 week course called "Mixing With 5 Plug-ins" and I need a poster/promo image for it.
The beta sales page can be found here: http://www.audio-issues.com/mw5p/ which has my initial graphic/poster that I threw together quickly. I also attached it, and you can see how in the top left I have EQ plug-ins or processors, top right I have compression, bottom left delay etc...
I used a lot of different plug-ins from my audio software to create the image but I'm thinking a simple representation of the plug-ins/processors would be less cluttered and easier to design the name around.
The 5 plug-ins/processors that I need represented in this poster are:
1. EQ - Equalization. Audio equalizers and the sort.
2. Compression. Audio compressors, not to be confused with ANY type of other compressors. I realize this is a very "niche" subject matter and might require some research but I'll try to guide you as much as I can throughout the contest.
3. Reverb - This is what you hear added to records when it sounds like it was recorded in a big or small room. It is what is added to sounds to make them bigger(or smaller depending on how you use it).
4. Delay - This is similar but a little different. It adds delay to signals, which gives them an echo of sorts.
5. Saturation - This is tape saturation, tape machines, old school analog style overdrive or soft clipping style saturation.
Other keywords to use for inspiration: music mixing, audio production, music production, sound engineering, audio engineering.
I want it to be a typical vertical rectangle poster that has all of these plug-ins or processors represented in the picture with the title "Mixing With 5 Plug-ins" very prominently displayed.
Also, it needs to have my logo, Audio Issues (I've uploaded a few examples you can use), and my name Björgvin Benediktsson.
Also, I would like the design of the poster to have the name displayed so that if I needed to crop out the title and use it for other purposes it would make sense to do so. So in the final deliverable I found prefer that it would be extractable from the Photoshop file, or I could modify it after the fact for branding purposes.
I'm looking forward to some creative designs but please browse the website, http://www.audio-issues.com, and check out the other product images I have on http://www.eqstrategies.net and http://www.audio-issues.com/strategies for some inspiration. I like a good balance between grungy and cleanliness, if that makes sense?
I will require the PSD file after the contest is over, with editable layers that can be modified if need be (say I would need to brighten it up or change the 5 to 6 any time for instance if possible).
