What's your vision?
We're looking to have front cover artwork designed to be used for 3000x3000px digital artwork as well as in a resolution that can print at 12"x12" 300dpi for potential vinyl. We'd also like to have any illustrations or visual assets contained in the art as separate layers in transparent background png's. Having the .ai or art file also a plus. Bonus points for assets in the art that we can use later for additional use.
We have a reoccurring logo/visual theme for most East Forest album artwork that includes a nautilus design. The East Forest nautilus/logo is a little unique in that a it has two "ridges" that protrude on the upper right - see the example image "nautilus-logo basic design". You can riff off of that shape and it can be incorporated in any way. We included other artwork, both from East Forest releases (but do not use assets previously used in East Forest art in this design) as well as inspirational art. We like artwork that is organic, modern, and illustrative can be nice, also graphical, flowing, hazy, soft, dreamlike, and original. We want an analog and organic versus digital. Best if the artwork conveys a liminal emotional feeling: in-between feelings, not totally masculine or feminine, not just mournful but not overtly positive. This is for an album called "Headwaters" that is spacious, ethereal, modern, emotive, minimal, and beautiful. You can hear a sample of the music here: https://soundcloud.com/eastforest/headwaters-sample/s-c8d1qJQJydX Tip - do NOT have images of a piano or piano keys, and if you use a photo of EF, try using it similar to the example below so it's not just a straight photo album art cover. We want something more artistic and interpretive. We also don’t necessarily need/want any text in the design. Headwaters are the start of a river or water way - not literally a head and water in it. And probably best not to represent it literally anyway.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Album Cover starts at $199.
Full copyright with production-ready files for digital and/or print.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their album cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
krishnM collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected 3 winners!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
