How MusicTechGirl started their other graphic design journey
In the Rain - Barrington Lawrence & Shefali
I'm Shefali - a singer, producer and label owner of Empire Street Records. We are in the midst of web development and gearing up for our initial launch including 3 releases. Each release will be distributed worldwide through all major online retailers, and we will be doing a limited run of vinyl.
The label is based out of New York City and Hong Kong, and specializes in electronic and alternative dance music (predominantly house).
Empire Street Records is eager to launch, and is looking for designs that reflect professionalism, modernism and edginess.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Empire Street Records is targeting the dance music audience. This is a world wide audience (mainly centered in Europe) with a wide range of ages 18-35. While it is male dominated, EDM (electronic dance music) targets men and women.
These are fun-loving people who like rhythm, electronics, and heavy bass lines/synthesizers. They frequently attend clubs and sexy lounge events which are supported by luxury brands and lifestyle brands.
Music is the focus, but the target audience appreciates striking and artistic album covers.
-cd cover size (4.742 inches X 4.742 inches)
-cover should include title "In the Rain"
-cover should include artist names "Barrington Lawrence & Shefali"
-optional for cover to include Empire Street Records logo (from both logos provided) only if it fits color scheme etc.
-deliverable should include a jpg, and psd file
Track title is called "In the Rain," and is a sexy progressive house track. It's all about playing and dancing in the rain; the way the rain feels on a person's skin; and being close to someone in the rain. We're looking for an album cover that depicts these feelings. The music depicts the feeling of raindrops.
-also attached is a photo of the singer, however there is no requirement to use the photo.
-Empire Street Records may need to convert RGB to CYMK for print use
