We are looking for design for our upcoming album. The title of the album is "Purpose". Above all, we want it to be a creative representation that ties into the theme of finding your purpose and seeking something greater than yourself. We also want the overall feel of the artwork to be different from the first album, as the music is also a lot different. Though we have a concept, it is not set in stone, but rather a vision that we had of what the final design would be. Sometimes others may hear the song and interpret things in a totally different way! So we're definitely open to wherever your mind goes when you think of ideas that would work.
As a concept for this, we wanted the front of the album to have an oversized moon or night scene. Preferably with a path that is leading thru woods, field, country or somewhere and headed up either a hill, stairs or something, toward the brightness of the moon. We originally wanted to photograph the girl from our music video (see link below) walking this path and turning back toward the camera, but logistics of this proved difficult for a night scene. We can probably do a photo shoot of her if you want to incorporate something specific into the design, but currently we do not have these. PLEASE let us know so we can set it up quickly!
Must haves: Night scene, path, moon
Definite no's: No railroad tracks or brick walls (inside band joke)
This is where your creativity comes in to play!
The back of the album we wanted to be the opposite of night.
Must haves: Brightness of day, girl coming back out of the bright light/sun.
The inside panels can be anything you feel that represents the band stylistically and with the theme of "Purpose". Band member pics, logos, etc. Do your magic!
The CD itself can tie in with the exterior design or be completely different. We typically go by the name "Matter of Fact" for all publications but we are sometimes referred to as "MOF" for some other merchandise and among band followers.
We also want to mention we are not particular about whether there are any band photos/pics incorporated in this. They can either be there or not, doesn't matter as much as the design.
