What's your vision?
I am creating a 5 week course called "Mixing With 5 Plug-ins" and I need a poster/promo image for it. The beta sales page can be found here: http://www.audio-issues.com/mw5p/ which has my initial graphic/poster that I threw together quickly. I also attached it, and you can see how in the top left I have EQ plug-ins or processors, top right I have compression, bottom left delay etc... I used a lot of different plug-ins from my audio software to create the image but I'm thinking a simple representation of the plug-ins/processors would be less cluttered and easier to design the name around. The 5 plug-ins/processors that I need represented in this poster are: 1. EQ - Equalization. Audio equalizers and the sort. 2. Compression. Audio compressors, not to be confused with ANY type of other compressors. I realize this is a very "niche" subject matter and might require some research but I'll try to guide you as much as I can throughout the contest. 3. Reverb - This is what you hear added to records when it sounds like it was recorded in a big or small room. It is what is added to sounds to make them bigger(or smaller depending on how you use it). 4. Delay - This is similar but a little different. It adds delay to signals, which gives them an echo of sorts. 5. Saturation - This is tape saturation, tape machines, old school analog style overdrive or soft clipping style saturation. Other keywords to use for inspiration: music mixing, audio production, music production, sound engineering, audio engineering. I want it to be a typical vertical rectangle poster that has all of these plug-ins or processors represented in the picture with the title "Mixing With 5 Plug-ins" very prominently displayed. Also, it needs to have my logo, Audio Issues (I've uploaded a few examples you can use), and my name Björgvin Benediktsson. Also, I would like the design of the poster to have the name displayed so that if I needed to crop out the title and use it for other purposes it would make sense to do so. So in the final deliverable I found prefer that it would be extractable from the Photoshop file, or I could modify it after the fact for branding purposes. I'm looking forward to some creative designs but please browse the website, www.audio-issues.com, and check out the other product images I have on www.eqstrategies.net and www.audio-issues.com/strategies for some inspiration. I like a good balance between grungy and cleanliness, if that makes sense? I will require the PSD file after the contest is over, with editable layers that can be modified if need be (say I would need to brighten it up or change the 5 to 6 any time for instance if possible).
I'm looking forward to seeing some creative work here. Feel free to have fun with the design but please keep it within the required parameters above. I've attached a zip file of multiple screenshots of various plug-ins. Use these as guidelines but please make sure all images you are using are royalty free.
