Entertainment & The Arts
Retro Youth is a solo music project I started 4 years ago. I released my first EP “Out of Touch” in 2015 and I’m now working on my first LP which is a concept album that revolves around the jungle. The music has a psychedelic quality to it and combines Indie Rock with R&B while still retaining a dance feel throughout the album. A lot of the inspiration for the project and song lyrics stem from jungle adventure novels such as: Heart of Darkness, The Mosquito Coast, The Lost City of Z, The Jungle Book, King Solomon’s Mines, Where The Wild Things Are, and She. It also pulls from movies like: Apocalypse Now, Platoon, Sorcerer, The Emerald Forest, and Pan's Labyrinth.
What's your vision?
I need Artwork for a 2 sided Electronic Press Kit. On the first page I’d like the Band Name “Retro Youth” in the center and the artwork you come up with behind/around it. On the second page, where I’ll overlay text for my Bio, Music Links, and Contact Info etc. myself using Photoshop, you can either submit the same artwork without “Retro Youth” on it, a continuation of the artwork on the first page, or a different piece of artwork altogether. The dimensions for both sides of the artwork should be 17”W X 11”H. With the music, I’ve tried to create a sonic landscape that’s mysterious, psychedelic, and dark while still retaining a youthful innocence/fairytale-esque quality. I’d like the artwork to represent that as well. I’m looking for something with more of an illustrated feel to it instead of using photographs. However, feel free to do whatever you like! I'm looking for something original and stylish. Eventually I’ll be looking for someone to do the album artwork for the LP so this is somewhat of a trial period to see if I can find an artist to do that as well. Just to clarify, one side should be 17”W X 11”H and the other side should also be 17”W X 11”H.
I've attached some images of artwork/designs I found on google that caught my eye just to give you a taste of some styles I like. Your design can be whatever you want though. Thanks!

And then… they selected a winner!
This very capable designer helped me take my book design (which Asael himself completed in a contest) and created a book cover which has passed KDP's guidelines.
The lower price of this project is justified by the fact that Asael went the extra mile during the design contest and essentially created a book cover then. This project served to finalize some details.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
