We need a front cover design for an upcoming product called "Q" (as in film cue). We'd like something strongly iconic. The winning design will probably feature a big Q that's central to the design, perhaps rendered in some way (with textures/backgrounds) that suggest film reels or cameras or other things that suggest the film, TV, and game industry. Modern and cutting-edge is what we're going for.
Feel free to look around vir2.com to get an idea of our general graphic style, and see our other products. We don't have any specific color scheme in mind, so feel free to think creatively.
Feel free to use stock photography. We will overlook watermarks for now, and pay for the images if your design is selected as the winner. Please do not use copyrighted images we wouldn't be able to purchase (e.g. logos, screenshots, or images from real movies).
We are offering $350 for this design. This is understood to include the design itself plus reasonable minor modifications which we may ask for after the conclusion of the contest. The $350 does not include stock photography, which we will purchase separately from your $350 fee.
We would like final delivery in PSD/PNG format, layered, 300dpi. Dimensions: 7 in wide x 11.5 in tall. (Mockups and interim versions, especially using lower-res stock photography previews, can be smaller and at screen resolution, but keep the same proportion.)
