HBI got their new illustration or graphics by running a design contest:
Create Beautiful & Powerful HD Images for a Spiritual Website
Check out HBI's Illustration or graphics contest…
We offer books, physical & digital audio and video courses, specialized training programs for techniques and practices that emphasize profound personal experience and spiritual development. People who find us are looking to achieve greater states of consciousness, deeper levels of meditation, have experiences with paranormal phenomenons, enhance their psychic abilities, improve their healing abilities and, ultimately, to discover the universe and connect with the Force and live their purpose. Eric Pepin, the author of the book, and founder of Higher Balance Institute, is not your "typical" spiritual teacher, he is a rebel and a trail-blazer. The way he delivers his lessons and spiritual teachings is very multi-faceted and he has a way of simplifying the most outstanding and complex subjects so they are easier to understand and digest. He wants everyone to be able to discover the hidden keys within themselves and unlock the secrets of the Universe, to open their eyes, minds and hearts to the extraordinary mysteries that have eluded them for so long. "Reality is an illusion", "we are living in a Matrix" - the old and the new - our organization combines ancient spiritual wisdom with modern concepts and advanced technologies, in a totally different approach to enlightenment. We draw from this ancient, universal wisdom and merge it with science, physics, and intellect to forge a new school of thinking.
What's your vision?
We need several - approximately 25+ images designed for our new website. Many of these images involve editing that would infuse images for the overlay/double exposure style. We have done this for another website of ours and are very happy with the results. The backgrounds are mostly very vivid, HD landscapes and settings and we'd like to have images of Eric superimposed into these landscape images so it looks like he is actually standing there, or meditating in there. The edits need to be done very meticulously and carefully, with the utmost attention to detail. We do not want to see slack jobs, we want you to take your time and do it right. Here is a list of images we would like to see combined and made into something very unique: 1. Black & white monk face.. (monkshot5, monkshot12 and IMG_0373) We need you to replicate the original (IMG_0373) so it looks almost exactly identical. There are 2 examples of Eric's face that are very close but need a little extra editing. We do not own the rights to the original image, but we are truly inspired by it and would like to make a version of our own with the face of the founder. You'll have to make the background black/dark but make it so his beard doesn't fully blend into the background. (note: there isn't actually that greenish tint in the original, that's just how the photo of the photo turned out) 2. Sunset with hands.. shutterstock_292882877 + any of the hands pictures. 3. Night sky with Eric meditating.. shutterstock_59672656 &/or shutterstock_290762177 + whichever meditation image fits best with the photo. Eric will be superimposed in the bottom of the picture, like he is sitting on the rocks meditating. It should look like he is actually in the photo - we don't want it to look fake. 4. Eric sitting on the rocks meditating by the water.. shutterstock_97325795 & shutterstock_167761004 with any of the meditation pictures.. again, it must look REAL, not like he was just stamped in but meticulously edited to make it look like he is actually in the photo. 6. DJ with tshirt logo on the back... shutterstock_268477412 + tshirt logo - will upload soon. 7. White cells w/ HBI logo in the nucleus.. shutterstock_237972814 + logo. Put the logo only in the blueish cells and leave the red ones as is. 8. Samuari with abstract background.. shutterstock_237693316 + any abstract background that gives it a surreal look - blended well. 9. Pillars with Eric meditating and the sun hitting him.. shutterstock_218873569 + the best picture of him meditating that fits in this image. Again, this must be well edited so you can see the sunlight hitting him as if he were actually in this ancient temple. 10. Wall graffiti with HBI logo tattooed on chest.. shutterstock_198667415 + logo. You may want to try removing the men from the image and filling in that part of the image if possible. then add the logo onto the graffiti art in the middle of his chest - the logo needs to also look like graffiti - like it was painted on the wall and the paint is starting to flake off. 11. Surreal ice field with EJP standing in the middle.. shutterstock_168054455 + Eric standing. 12. Mountains with hands coming in from the sides - shutterstock_107079881 + out stretched hands 13. Eric meditating on the moon .. shutterstock_160890839 + image of Eric meditating. 14. Dark dojo with Eric meditating.. shutterstock_112624280 + Eric meditating. Must be carefully done with the exact shading and color tones as if he was actually sitting in this dim room with the cool lighting. 15. Sign post - hand of hands.. shutterstock_102329071 + with any of hands7, hands8, hands9, hands10, hands11 - coming in the side of the image superimposed, almost mirroring the sign. 16. Devastating mountains with Eric's face..shutterstock_67717414 + EJP or EJP14 or EJP13. Have his face subtly superimposed over the mountain image for a dramatic effect. 17. Eric's face double exposed only on the tree trunks and nothing in the spaces.. shutterstock_60822307 + a close up image of Eric's face, maybe even one of the monk face images 18. Ice & sun with Eric standing in white leather jacket.. shutterstock_111060626 + EJP32 19-25. Be creative & make something that we haven't thought of yet. Using the pictures we've provided, you are welcome to make a combination of any of the images you think would look stunning together based on what we have requested above.
We don't want to look like all the "run of the mill" spiritual schools and websites out there. We want to be more bold, more modern and surreal. You can view our other recent contests for inspiration: www.higherbalanceinstitute.com (Design Images for a Surreal Website) and Prescient Visions (Create a Surreal Book cover) The pictures need to look REAL and believable. Please don't cut corners, do a half assed job or just stamp one picture into another. We want someone who will pay extremely close attention to all of the little details and take their time to make sure it looks absolutely perfect.
