Here's something exciting to work on that isn't going to come across your desk everyday. You are designing for a band that is on the verge of reaching their dream. The band has several meetings and showcases in LA and NYC with major industry labels, managers, and agents over the next few weeks. For years they have been building a grass roots following and creating a buzz and recently their hard work has opened a lot of doors.
We, their managers (along with the band), will be presenting their music, videos, and vision to several executives starting in about 8 days. We will have about 30 minutes do do all of the above and we need a band brochure booklet that solidifies their image while we are in the meetings and that leaves an unforgettable impression once we have left
You are FREE to be as creative as you would like as long as the design doesn't distract from the intention of the brochure.
- Next Big Thing
The photos that we took for this design were modeled after the movie "Reservoir Dogs". If you know the movie, you don't expect the stars to be Bank robbers when you first see them. As the plot unfolds you quickly understand that you should never judge a book by it's cover. We purposely chose wardrobe and poses that intrigue anyone looking at them: What do these guys sound like?, What genre are they?, etc. We want the design elements and concept to contrast the photos. The photos are color, but dark with a lot of black and white. We ant the designer to incorporate a lot of grey and red since those are the band's colors (black, red, and grey on white).
Many times when designers see this they want to "go urban". Please avoid this. This band is going to be positioned more in a rock vein visually so keep that in mind. Glitter, Sparkle, and Bling designers need not apply.
The Format will be a 8.5 X 11 Brochure Booklet:

***5 of the pages that will be included in our brochure will have identical design elements with different photo and text content. We won't need all of the identical pages to be created to give feedback or select the winner.
Here are a couple of videos to inspire your creativity. We believe that hearing the music and seeing their videos will give you a much better sense of the direction that you need to go in.
