Acoustic Guitar Forum, the world's largest acoustic guitar community is looking for a print design for our next CD! Your cover design will be seen daily by over 7000 acoustic guitar enthusiasts, and your artwork will be a part of musical history.
We are looking for a cover design with a modern acoustic guitar theme, which will carry across the entire product including the actual music CD. The CD liner is 4 panels, and aside from the cover, most of this will be filled with text. The tray card is two-panels (front/back), with a clear CD tray so that artwork is visible below the CD. The back of the tray card will be covered with text and a barcode. Therefore, the primary design points (your canvas) are the cover, the inside tray card, and the actual CD. The other panels need to have more subtle artwork to allow the overlay of text to be clear.
We need a total of 6 panels of color artwork and a CD design. Print-ready templates will be attached. The cover panel and the CD artwork need to include the title 'Acoustic Guitar Forum 2'.
Design: I'm attracted to modern designs that incorporate retro elements, like James Blunt's 'Back to Bedlam' CD - their heavy use of retro-patterns as a background and line-art for some foreground accents. A modern take on a classic American western motif might look good also. Design elements might include acoustic guitars but it's not absolutely necessary. These CD's are about the music. Let's see your ideas!
Award will also include several copies of the finished CD - your masterpiece! You will also receive credit for the artwork in the liner notes of the CD. We are offering two awards - one set of artwork will be used for Acoustic Guitar Forum Volume 2 and one for Volume 3 (scheduled for early next year).
