Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We are a newcomer Rock Band from Germany. We are currently producing our first album, which shall be named "FAST LANE". Our music has different influences like Hard Rock, Rock´n`Roll, Classic Rock, Alternative Rock, Punk and Funk. The guitar heavy sound is typical for us. If you look closer on our band name you can find certain character traits like young, wild, free, careless, revolting and so on. We have put a lot of effort in our music and now we are looking for an eyecatcher as our album cover.
I would say our music is timeless like Led Zeppelin or AC/DC, but most "fans" are younger (16-30).
We like to rock hard and have fun with our music.
Nevertheless we are always looking for the perfect fit.
Our songs do have different topics. Serious topics like the safety on earth and "advices for a better life", but our main topics are love, freedom, youth and having fun.
To get a short idea, how our music sounds: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJwnKOMj9io
Have fun while listening to it!
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
RED LIGHT DISTRICT debut album FAST LANE.
Our first thoughts were: Road, Overtaking, Fast, Asphalt, Tire marks. Keep it simple.
We are looking for an eyecatcher. In first place we don´t want to give you our imaginations, because we want to have different ideas. We are open for every kind of cover. It should be rather simple than "crazy and wild" (but if you have a nice idea, we are open for that as well). We would like to have a cover which will be printed on the CD as well and it could be also printed on a t-shirt. Colors shouldn´t be extraordinary (like pink or any other color which isn´t a "hard rock color").
Please have a look on our current lettering and logo. If you like you can use them as well. If this doesn´t fit your imaginations, please use something else.
Fonts, pictures or anything else which are licensed and would cause additional payment for us shouldn´t be used. If it should be necessary for you please give us the information. And i am not sure if necessary, but please do not use Plantone colors.
We would like to have a similar design on the backside of the album with the track titles on it. The inside will be done from ourselves (pictures and songtexts). If it´s possible choose a harmonic font which fits the desgin or our lettering/logo.
P.S.: Please let me know if there is something confusing or if you want to know more.
We are looking forward to working with you soon! :)
