I am releasing a new Christmas album and I need a CD cover (front and back) designed. Size is usually 5.5" x 5.5" (allowing some room for bleed). I need both the front and back designed (this will be a CD sleeve - template layout can be found here: https://www.oasiscd.com/graphics/te…allets.asp - it's the single printed sleeve).
We also need a cover for the CD which compliments the cover. It could be the same image as the cover just resized to fit the template which is here: On-Disc Imprint https://www.oasiscd.com/graphics/te…sp?cat=tem
I'm looking for something really creative here. Not really stock images of holiday themed photography. Think less standard images and more creative art. Something that intrigues someone to give this album a closer look and something that goes along with the mood of the album. I am looking for something non-traditional, so think outside the box. I do want it to reflect what the holidays are - a time for family, memories, traditions, celebrations. The list of songs is in the section below to give you a feel for the music.
I am really looking for something that represents the classic and traditional ideas of the Christmas Season but that is presented in a hip and cutting-edge design. I hope this helps you find your creative best. I'm a music artist so I am looking for something that is artistic and makes my CD cover stand out from the crowd.
I'd like to stay away from anything that looks like a greeting card or book cover.
The album title is "Magical Memories" and the front should also include the words "A John Tracy Christmas." I also want the John Tracy to stand out larger than the words "A" and "Christmas" so my name doesn't get lost.
For the back of the cover, I'll need to be able to add the song list, bar code and other text myself, so the back should be a simpler design that allows text to stand out. For example, it could be a paper scroll (to look like Santa's list) that I can add the song list, etc to. However, it should flow easily with the idea from the front image.
