Debut album - Complete artwork concept including 6 panel digipak CD packaging and online sales.
The overall feel of the project should be high quality.
We're after something beautiful, deep and powerful that's evocative of our pop, rock, jazz, fusion & spiritual sound. A refined original abstract image, photograph of anything well presented that shows the warmth of the music and if possible the idea of "echoes" or the concept of Sapphire (which is the translation of Sappir). So Sapphire & Echoes or reflections are a good point of reference but the sky's the limit. Please do not be too literal.
The photos need to be in the background or on inner panels and the energy and abstraction needs to be on the foreground of the concept while the photos are there to enhance the overall feel if they are used at all on the front panel.
Nothing too corporate please, your submission needs to capture our dynamic, powerful energy in a colourful abstract manner.
No lewdness. No cartoon. No Star of David's - we feel it's a bit cheesy. There's no need for a person to see the artwork and know it's "Jewish" music in particular. However, if you can subtly and artistically allude to that in your work that's also good. Whatever you feel would be high art, tasteful, and possibly incorporating concepts of either sapphire, echoes, Jewish music in any way will be gratefully received.
We want this to be clean, uncluttered and simple.
Text must be clear, refined and easy to read.
Must translate well to online sales format.
NOTE: *** We are looking for the CD work to include provided text and place holder text for text not yet finalised. The winner will need to complete this work subsequently, as they will need to provide a final version depending on additional text requirements, print templates, etc., that work is included in this contest.****
The song names are to be shown in Hebrew and English transliteration - i.e. 2 entries.
e.g.: Kol Haolam Kulo / כל העולם כולו. Be careful not to invert the Hebrew text backwards as it often does while copying on a word processor.
There are two lead musicians, and so if you wish to use the musicians photographs on the front - they must both be included.
See attached JPEG files of imagery from the Studio. Feel free to manipulate imagery as you wish. For the front cover you can use any abstract art, picture or image without our faces, or one of our pictures but not clear images of the artists faces, obscure the faces or use one without faces in.
The CD packaging is 6 panel digi-pak see file attached
