How jnabs started their print or packaging design journey

Company name

Venture Capital Underground

Overview

This is a Welcome DVD & Workbook for the VENTURE CAPITAL UNDERGROUND, a group for entrepreneurs who need to raise business capital.

I just need one concept/design/layout to be applied to the DVD disc, DVD case, and a workbook cover.

I am very passionate about the importance of entrepreneurship to our economy and our world. I want to get this DVD out there as much as possible so that it can enable the funding and launching and growth of all the business ventures that are ignored by Wall Street and venture capital firms.

I have several businesses and web sites:
http://www.nabers.com
http://www.jeffnabers.com
http://www.fivestepstofreedombook.com

The name of the product may slightly change, but the meaning behind it is all the same:

Venture Capital Underground
Underground Venture Capital
Funding Underground
Underground Funding

Please MAKE SURE you read the comments on the entries page; I've already added a lot of specific guidance information there, and I'll be providing lots of instant feedback for all entries :-D

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

This DVD is for entrepreneurs who want to raise money to launch or expand their business.

I want it to look really sharp and solid and attention-grabbing without looking cheesy or corny.

There are over 18 million solo entrepreneurs in the U.S. alone. Many of which have more than one business. Many of which have tried raising capital but failed. Bank loans are drying up and venture capitalists are very picky and often take advantage of the entrepreneurs they choose to actually fund.

This DVD is an unconventional system for raising capital and quick!

Requirements

I'll need the design files in PSD format at 300 DPI ready to print onto DVD disk, case cover, and a workbook cover. They can all be the same design though.

I'm aware that there are a ton of super talented designers on this site and I can't wait to see all the fantastic designs you guys and girls come up with!

*** A note about entrepreneurship ***
You yourself are an entrepreneur and I hope you can appreciate the importance of our type of enterprising individual. We make the world go round, we are the backbone of the economy. I challenge you to round up an extra amount of passion as you work on this project so that we can help other entrepreneurs launch and grow their businesses too :-D

**** IMPORTANT - FURTHER GUIDANCE ***
I'm going to be very active in responding to comments and questions and giving feedback for all submissions. So please check all my comments on the contest page. I've already put one big long comment with lots of ideas, so go there and check it out now.

Some ideas for imagery:

We want this to convey that the VENTURE CAPITAL UNDERGROUND is a membership organization that is elite, secretive, underground. I am somewhat conjuring images up of a guy in hood where you can't see his face and him delivering to the viewer (or leading the viewer to) a source of light. Maybe like a chest full of gold or golden light or maybe some other source of light representing wealth or wealth creation.

So when I think of this imagery I think of kind of like secret societies, like freemasons. With their rituals, secrecy, imagery, sword and shield type imagery, etc.

see:

and

http://images.google.com/images?sta…=freemason

I don't want to make it exactly like freemasonry symbolism, but it might be good to capture some of that elite, secret, elegant, geometric type stuff. Just an idea, not strict guidance.

So maybe be thinking a bit of the imagery of THE DA VINCI CODE and INDIANA JONES and NATIONAL TREASURE and that type of stuff.
