Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Vir2 has consistently produced the highest quality instrument libraries available. Over the years, our sounds have been featured in hundreds of charting songs and top film and television soundtracks. We are the largest distributor of sample libraries in the world, and we create the most up-to-date loop and virtual instruments libraries using our extensive recording facilities and team of producers. As when you hire a musician or engineer in the studio, experience is vital.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We are releasing a product called "Vintage Vibe". This product contains various playable instruments with a focus on sounds and instruments from the 60's and 70's. The product contains various vintage guitars, drum sets, basses, keyboards ect...
The product should have a bit of a "dusty" feel to it. Think old guitar amplifiers, old rhodes keyboards. It's kind of a collection of how you would expect bands like the beatles would sound from the mid 60's.
We want to stay away from the psychedelic side of music from the late 60's and 70's and definitely don't want any disco themes.
This cover would most likely be best by keeping people out of the cover. A focus on a single instrument or group of instruments would be best with a finely crafted font for the title. The title should be large and prominent and expertly incorporated into the design.
Check the attached files for an image of another cover we think has a similar feel we liked.
The design can be created using any graphics program(s) you like, 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 case. Dimensions are 5.1" x 7.2" with 0.125" (1/8") bleed. The use of stock photography is acceptable within a reasonable price range. If you choose stock photography, feel free to use the preview (watermarked) image in your mockup, and we will overlook it during the contest's duration, then will purchase it if you are the winner of the contest.
Please leave out any flying musical notes, tacky clip art, or other "cheesy" design elements. We are only going to consider a design with a high level of technical execution and a pro look.
