Hello creative geniuses!
Hi there, I'm Tiana - a new singer, songwriter and visionary about to release my first cd. The music is done, the website is being created as we speak, media attention is buzzing, I'm working on band choreography and a music video.....now all I need is an amazing cd cover and 8-page booklet that grabs the attention of people all over the world to stop and find out who is this girl and what is she about.
My music crosses a few genres including Pop, R&B, Rock, Jazz and Contemporary-like grooves. Please go to my producer's website to hear the music...www.rickymozartproductions.com. Songs by TIANA will be on the discography page. Because my personality is so diverse, my first album is exploring many styles so my branding and image needs to not pigeon hole me into any particular category.
I want the sex appeal of major pop stars, yet the down to earth feel and depth of artist's like Jewel or Sarah Mclachlan, with the edge and sense of darkness like Evanesence.
I am an old soul and on a mission to make a difference in society using music and a popstar status as the vehicle for doing so. The more influence I have because of my notoriety, the bigger difference I can make.
I want to appeal somewhat to the younger generation (I'm 26 btw), yet my lyrics and music will probably appeal to the middle age crowd. More than appealing to a certain age group, I want to appeal to people who appreciate depth and substance over shallow, ego-based mentalities, (think Brittney Spears). The MTV pop music scene is lacking for a younger artist who has an important message but carries it inside of catchy pop music.
My name: TIANA
Album Name: Absolute Exposure
I need you to stay along the same design lines/feel of the website home page.(see attachment) Everything created visually needs to be focused on the "Absolute Exposure" of TIANA.
I need an 12-page booklet (4/1) with color on the front and back page and black & white/grey on the inside page + a (4/1) Tray Card.
This project should be relatively easy because it's relying on the pictures mostly and doesn't need much other graphics. The most important thing is designing a logo of my name to go over the cover picture that I can use on my business card and flyers in promoting the shows for this album.
Please check out the logo for another artist who's feel and look I like at http://www.zavaro.com. I came up with a few ideas for my name/logo on the attached document. I'm not attached to using the same fonts, but something similar would be great.
For the font on the inner panels, surprise me. Keep the color of graphics for the front and back panel complimentary to the picture for each.
Keep everything simple and classy, non cluttery. I've attached the pictures and word doc that'll tell you where to put everything. I will be needing alot more design projects coming up for myself and other artists. Can't wait to see what you come up with!
