Vabriel was very creative when it came to interpreting our brief for a band t-shirt in an artistic way - creating a dark, lino cut style design that really appealed to our more metal-leaning fan. Quick to respond to questions and incorporate feedback, we would happily recommend Vabriel to others!
- Crooked Fiddle Band
- pro colors
The design was definitely a new take on what I had originally wanted, but the detail was very eye catching and I thoroughly loved the detail put together. The designer was very respectful and listened to my choices of how I wanted it to be. I would definitely work with him again!
Consummate professional. Patient and helpful. Works well with the descriptions provided, and still manages to give me something more. Manages to capture the emotional core of the projects and make people gasp.
Extremely talented and responsive - highly recommended :)

We make old school death metal.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
Only artists interested in 'darker' design need read further.
We're a South African death metal band that focus on the old school death metal sound. We're launching our first 8 track album in March of 2012 and need a cover design that will show we're serious, here to stay and it should be comparable in quality and style to the designs attached (of classic death metal albums).
The idea would be to incorporate the attached logo (I can provide higher quality images too). Some kind of beast or character rising out of a 'blood pit' would be a start, any ideas for notable concept cover art would be fine as well.
I can make the lyrics for the songs available on request or higher quality logo scans.
Looking forward to working with artists willing to bring the right feel to a cover.
Demographics for our target audience:
Ages 18-25, both male and female
Location: European audience (although something uniquely African would be cool as an element of the cover)
Education: anything from high school level to PhD level (metalheads in Europe are commonly students busy with degrees or Masters programs)
Interests: progressive music, heavy music, alternative overtones
Lifestyle: alternative lifestyles (not GOTH or PUNK)
