Project description

We had our website and logo designed and are pleased with that. With the website design however came a design for a 'backdrop'. A backdrop is a large banner (in this case 2x4 meter is about 3.28 feet) that hangs behind the band when they perform. Ofcourse this advertises the bands name, url and logo but should also set an atmosphere. At this URL you can see an example of a backdrop from a different band. Its our singer with the backdrop of a Iron Maiden tribute band behind him: The backdrop that we got had our logo (wich is fine the way it is) but also had a picture of a very nice lady. This lady is clearly designed and drawn by a woman as she is very clean, does not show any cleavage does not wear netstockings and misses the point of ACDC rock&roll by not at least having horns or a pointed tail. What we ask from you is to replace the design we got (and wich you can download) with something as cool and detailed as the Ironic Maiden backdrop shown in the example above. This does not necessarily have to be a sexy lady, but may be the devil or Angus Young bursting through the backdrop in a hail of fire, the scene from a AC/DC song, a tribute to the late Bon Scott or anything else that you can come up with and that makes clear that we're dealing with the coolest AC/DC tribute band known to men. The original design wich contains the logo can be downloaded from: The file is rather big (180MB) and I'm not able to open it on my computer so I hope inside is what was shown to us in thumbnail size.

  • Hi, thanks yes the images are high res. & big enough Bernadette
  • Hi CH, Do you have a vector logo other than the one in the psd? Regards John
  • Great, thats what I meant! I hope those images are high res enough to be printed this big...? Would love to see more entries in this direction!
  • The backdrop should be 2 meters high and 4 meters wide. We dont want to keep the lady but want something acdc related
  • The backdrop should be 2 meters high and 4 wide. The artwork is really generic, we dont want to keepthe lady but something acdc related
  • well I am working on a design and have a place holer for the logo. The contest runs for a while so try and get the logo or let me know of a site that you can pull it from in the US and I will keep polishing the design until you can upload it! or if the designer can tell you what kind of program to use to open it. I hate downloading things because I have way too much work to have a virus and the computer be in the shop for 2 weeks getting debugged! I also think it will help emensely to get more designers to work on the design!
  • Dear CH, Could you tell us designers what shape backdrop you need (like mine and ArchanaVr or like ones you eliminated is ok to) Also what would you like to see in it? I only made a girl "demon" by adding horns, tail, burning eyes, but i would love to know how you think winning entry it should look what elements have. Thank you
  • Unfortunatly I can't get it open myself. I got the file from a designer. I'll ask if they can just send the logo, but I'm afraid it'll take a few days...
  • Is there any way you can upload just your logo and maybe just a few images that you might want. That file is huge and I am having a hard time getting it open. I think you will get a lot more designers into it if you can do that. Thanks I <3 AC/DC
  • We dont want a new logo.
  • Wrong dimensions
  • Wrong dimensions
  • @mseelye1, the aspects seems wrong, dimensions should be 2x4 meter. Also, you can't use these fotos since the resolution is too low. On a cloth this big you'll only see isolated pixels. Apart from all that, this is not what i'm looking for.
  • #3, again I used some of the band images from your site.
  • For #2, I used some of the images from your website.
  • @Activelearning, Thank you for your entry. I think we would get in problem with women rights organisations if would fly this at our concerts :) A bit more humor is needed in this case. I do like the large Angus on the background. Something simpler with less distortion, our original logo as it is on top, with only the large Angus would be a improvement.
  • Great :)
  • Nevermind the points I'm giving. The whole band together will select a winner, not just me. Also other things come into play that will affect our choice. For instance a backdrop with a logo high in the design thats not too big might be more practical because our drummer is sitting in front of it if we play at a small venue. I'm very glad with the designs we got so far, maybe we'll even get more in the last few hours.
  • Great!
  • Great!
