Project description

We are a hard rock band from Norway called Kalfar (check us out at Kalfar.com)  about to release our second album called "Going to Hell"  and we need an album cover. It should be in colour, but we will consider black and white versions. It needs the dimensions 1600 * 1600 pixels or  bigger, perfect square and in best RGB color mode.

We have two basic ideas for an album cover. 
You can choose one of the ideas, or you can somehow combine them, or try something unexpected. Attached are some picture you can use as inspiration.

Obviously we need the band name "Kalfar" and the album title "Going to Hell" to be in the cover art. How it is written/fonts/style is up to you and how you do the art.

Idea A:
Earth falling into burning galaxy/hell/black hole.

Idea B:
Alien spaceship maybe marked Kalfar on their way to earth.

We need the end product in a common format as we dont have any design software.

We are likely to give back ideas and suggestions however, we are not designers so these may or may not work. For us it's nice to try different ideas :). We also don't fully like the 0-100 thing so unless we say otherwise we will be considering all designs and try to give feedback to help support each designer getting something done we like and will consider

Thanks for all the work and effort in advance,

  • Hi all,

    Thanks for the many, many entries.

    There's so many good and different ones that we're struggling to do much other than discuss backwards and forwards as a band. This is some difficult decision making for us due to the high number of good quality entries. We appreciate all the hard work and can't thank you all enough!!

    Many thanks,
  • Need anything please reply. #61
  • Hi there, I thought I would have one more try before the contest ends. I drew Satan's skull, I thought it might make a nice tattoo! I have put it on a fiery orange background that will hopefully attract attention. Have a great evening. Lizzy : ) #60

    We have lots of great looking planets and spaceships now - amazing. And they all look cool! Feel free to surprise with something completely different from this point on. You never know - it could blow us away :)

  • Hi all.

    Hated doing it but after discussions with the band members and our inner circle I have eliminated some entries. All the art was good but it's probably better to know now if we're not considering it.

    Please do submit any other ideas you might have and good luck with all your future art!

    Many thanks,
