Thanks for checking out my design needs. I am a singer/songwriter and I need a beautiful cover/back panel for my new 5 song EP, called So This is Love. These songs are a little different from the ones on my website. They are still quirky and sweet, but a few of them are a bit melencholy and talk about the hard parts of love. So I want this artwork to still be whimsical and quirky, but use more muted colors that reflect a rang of feelings, not just happy ones. I write music for tv/film so these are the type of songs that you might hear in Greys anatomy or in a tv commercial. If you know Ingrid Michaelsons music, these new songs will sound a bit like hers. If you know the store Anthropologie that helps because I really like their visual design and clothing-they have so much texture and whimsy and still appear so sexy.
The target is the same group that would watch Greys anatomy. Young people in their 20s-40s. People who enjoy indie music that has heart and ukulele and lyrics that you can relate to and want to curl up with like an old friend. This new CD will have a range of emotions, reflective, sad, longing and happy. Exploring the various feelings associated with being in love.
The title of the CD is So this is Love. Since these songs explore the various feelings associated with being in love-the joy, the fear, the longing, etc.
Here are some things to keep in mind:
You may want to use illustrated stars twinkling in a twilight colored sky.
You may want to think of it like you're designing a valentines card-vintage, charming, muted colors. I'd love there to also be some girl in there that looks like she's me from the back maybe she;s holding the L on the word love for shes placing a heart to be used instead of the O in the word Love. perhaps an illustration of me handing a heart to a boy.
Think about which one speaks most to you.The words So This is Love should be written on the cover. My name Cathy Heller should also appear on the front. The back cover should explore the same theme that you've chosen for the front cover. You may use two people on a carousel. See what speaks to you. Once I choose the design I will give you the song titles which also need to appear on the back.
I'm attaching a few photos of me, just for feel, not for you to use. Just to give you an idea of the sentiment and also something to go off of i Thanks again for doing my design. All the best,
