How vir2instruments started their print or packaging design journey
We need a cover for a new music library product. The product is called "Buzz Cutz: Guitar-Infused Beatz n' Breakz" The cover should be eye catching and the title should be prominent and well thought out within the overall design concept.

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We want the cover to portray "Funky" while not being the stereotypical over the top afros and roller skates. We'd also like some element of a "Rock" edge. It's Guitar driven, which plays a prominent roll in the library. We want to stay away from "Cheesy" and stick with something creative and looks new and edgy.
Here is a link to a product that will give you an idea of what our covers look like. Don't necessarily think that this cover needs to be similar to this but this should give you a good idea of what we have done in the past. Link to other Big Fish Audio product
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. 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. We aren't looking to break the budget on a piece of stock photography but if it works with the overall design we are looking for and the price is right then we are OK with it. 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 so that the cover can be rendered properly.
- Funky feel with an edge- Use of guitar would be ideal- Feel free to think outside the box; be creative
- Afros and rollerskates- "Buzz Cutz" does not refer to the haircut- Clip art
