Entertainment & The Arts
I am a Montreal, Canada based instrumental ambient artist and I make music under the name Monochrome Seasons. My music draws influences from ambient/acoustic/movie music and old progressive rock. The music is written mainly for ethereal electric guitar, piano, cello and acoustic guitar. Most of the songs are slow, intimate, ethereal and contemplative.
What's your vision?
I am releasing a full-length album called ‘’Scordatura’’ that will be packaged into a four panel board jacket to accommodate the insertion of one disc. I am seeking designs for the following: ---> Front album cover, front/inside (credit listing), back/inside, back cover w/ one spine, and the physical CD. I will be using the front cover for digital sales as well. ---> A banner for my digital distribution site. 975 pixels wide, 40-180 pixels tall, .jpg, .gif or .png (2mb max). The banner should be in the same style/colors than my album cover and should have my artist name (Monochrome Seasons) written big at the center, and 4 smallers words (Home, Merch, Facebook, Youtube) under. I have attached my current banner as an example. I want almost the same thing, but replacing the word ‘’Twitter’’ by ‘’Merch’’ instead and it needs to fit the same theme as my album. I don’t have a definite idea for the artwork. I have included cover arts that I really like, just so you can have an idea of the style I like. It has to be in some way contemplative, delicate and peaceful. I tend not to like album covers that have too many elements in them. I want something simple and uncluttered. Not too many colors and not too many forms. Something stylized and mature. No flashy colors. You can get inspired by some of the song titles if you want! Here are some examples of songs that are going to be on the album taken from my Youtube channel, so you can get inspired by the music to create your artwork: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ijsnMARnEx0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ijsnMARnEx0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cz3OUGu9N1E What should be on the artwork ? The front should have my artist name: ‘’Monochrome Seasons’’ and the album name ‘’Scordatura’’. The front/inside should have the credit listing. The back/inside should have a design similar to the front cover (but not exactly the same). And the back should have the track listing with a similar background. As long as all the sides have a sense of unity, I’m ok with it. ___________________________________________________ Here is the text you need to add: [Credit listing: front/inside] ENGLISH: Thanks to all the amazing artists I had the pleasure to collaborate with.

It would be a HUGE plus if you could take the main design and provide it in the right format to print on T-shirts. If you are able to do this, again, it would be a HUGE plus! Thanks so much !
