Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Big Fish Audio clients range from high end film composers to contemporary Urban music producers. This particular project is geared toward the producer of hip hop (specifically the "dirty south" sound of hip hop) who needs the perfect sounds to create authentic Dirty South hip hop tracks.
The title of this project is "Dirty South Bangaz". The cover concept should have a that title included on it. The title should be well thought out within the overall design. Also consider the type setting and layout of the title. The imagery should include hip hop themes but don't overuse images of a street in a ghetto or tagging or anything too overtly sexual.
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.
