What's your vision?
We want to have a great CD cover designed for our first album. This CD cover will be in the DIGIPAK format. See attached files for details/measurments. Think a cool, elegant design with an dark, extreme and occult vibe to it. Visually the design should be in powerful RED AND BLACK!!! See band photos for the idea. Think BLOOD RED and RAVEN BLACK. Possibly some WHITE too if necessary.... Some designers have tried GOLD color logo also. That was impressive! You also have a rough draft of the first page of the design. Obviously, this is just a rough draft. You must make it WAY cooler... And darker red also. Our big logo should go on the CD disk itself - in RED and BLACK. (Possibly some WHITE too if necessary.... Some designers have tried GOLD also - with great success). The details from the print shop are in german, but hopefully you can get the numbers you need. Bandphoto should go on the back of the CD cover we think (it can be cropped so that the band members are more close together - if necessary). "The skeletons" design can be used as background (if necessary). This photo is OPTIONAL to use! Cornelis Galle "Lucifer" is the artwork for the front. Should be cropped to use the head and hands of Satan as in the draft. Include the label logo attached - "Metal Blast Records" on the back... but make it small. Album information should be included in a cool font. Information in both word and pdf attached. Again, in RED text on BLACK background. We hope you can make a bad ass cover based on these instructions. Please try to impress us - you can do it! And please: we ask you to be a bit flexible with us. Yes, we understand this is a contest that goes on for a few days, but if you can give us some leeway that would be superb. Because the final design must be approved also by the German label and German printing company. We only deal with them digitally. We are a Norwegian band and are based in Norway - and communication can be a challenge sometimes. Thank you for your understanding!
Please ask questions if anything is unclear. Remember also: we ask you to be a bit flexible with us. Yes, we understand this is a contest that goes on for a few days, but if you can give us some leeway that would be superb. Because the final design must be approved by the German label and German printing company. We only deal with them digitally/online. We are a Norwegian band and are based in Norway - and communication can be a challenge sometimes. Thank you for your understanding! REMEMBER 2: We are asking you to complete the WHOLE cd design. Not just the front cover (although we agree the front is super important). Please show us your idea for the whole package.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their poster.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
kristian_kjelsberg collaborated with designers to refine their ideas

And then… they selected a winner!
Extremely happy to work with Ace! What a superb designer and truly professional artist! A great joy. We gave him a reasonably good idea, and he turned it into something great. Very happy - just top notch! Look forward to working with him and 99designs again.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
