How vir2instruments started their print or packaging design journey
We need a design for the cover of a new music library called "CRANK'D: Urban Rock". The cover should include this title as a main focus as well as a design that coveys the intensity and "in your face" nature of this product.

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
CRANK'D: Urban Rock is the title of this design. The title should be a focus of the overall design. The content of this music library is industrial rock with elements of hip hop thrown in. It's big and in your face and the cover should covey that. The music may be compared to Limp Bizkit, korn, or even Run DMC or Beastie Boys for a more old school reference. Again the cover should have an intensity that help portray this very urban rock hybrid music.
Here is a link to another Big Fish product we put out. Don't necessarily think that this cover needs to be similar to this but this should give you a good idea of what we have done in the past. Example Product Link
The design can be created using any graphics program(s) you like, but we would like final delivery in PSD or PNG format, layered, at 300dpi. It will be used as the front cover of the DVD. Dimensions are 5.1" x 7.2" with 0.125" (1/8") bleed. The use of stock photography is acceptable within a reasonable price range. We aren't looking to break the budget on a piece of stock photography but if it works with the overall design we are looking for and the price is right then we are OK with it. If you choose stock photography, feel free to use the preview (watermarked) image in your mockup, and we will overlook it during the contest's duration, then will purchase it if you are the winner of the contest so that the cover can be rendered properly.
- Nice title with good type setting- a cover design that helps convey the musics rock urban intensity
