Monochrome Seasons is the solo project of multi-instrumentalist Antoine Michaud from Montreal, Canada. My music can be describe as atmospheric/ambient music.
What's your vision?
I want to get the design for my new full lenght-album ''Sanctuary'' to be released in august. I need the following covered: 4 panel Digipak: [see template attached] ---> 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. NEW BRIEF: I finally found the word I was looking for to describe what I want for the cover: vintage. Look at the first picture I uploaded as an example. It has like a vintage filter over it, and the scenery makes you feel the melancholy a lot. Of course, I don't want a pale copy of that album, but it really gives you the feel I am looking for. You can exploit any idea you have of a Sanctuary and add a vintage/melancholic vibe to it. I have one idea in my head: I picture an old house or church or garden that was abandoned in nature and plants start to grow on it. This would have the double meaning I want, in the sense that it looks like a place where you can feel like home, but at the same time there is an element of sadness because it was abandoned. If you could do something like this, but with the vintage feel of the Riverside album (first image attached), that would be very close to my vision. There could be a character from afar or not in the scenery. This is just an idea, if you have a better one, I always like to be surprised! You can get examples of some of the songs to get the vibe: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=spsKeVv0rXI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EY4kJCSpS5I https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uMshES75Hgg ______________________________________ Here's the text to add: [Message to my fans: front/inside] Sanctuary is place where you can feel safe. I made this album, embracing my ambient guitar roots like never before, in hopes that it will be a place where you can come back to and be comforted, reaching deep into your soul. There is beauty everywhere, even in nostalgia and sadness. Let the atmospheric waves calm your mind and heal your spirit. I want to thank all my supporters and my viewers on Youtube. I couldn’t have made this album without you. Thank you for following me on this incredible journey. Monochrome Seasons is the music of: Antoine Michaud – Guitars and piano.

You can look at those attached pictures to get inspired and see the kind of depth, nature inspired scenery, and mysterious vibe I am looking for. You also get the template for the digipak. I will also be looking to work with the winner on creating a simple Bandcamp banner on the same theme as the album for extra money based on his/her hourly rates. Thanks!

Earphunk has a great eye for design and was very responsive to changes in getting the best design possible for my film poster. I needed someone who could take my initial concept and expand on it with his own creativity to complete a great design.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
