Project description

Sound Roots School of Music is a fun, forward-thinking and a little bit edgy music school in Portland, OR. We have been open for about 3 years and are in need of a fresh new 11x17 poster for marketing purposes. Colors should be bright and bold. There should be reference to music in the imagery but without being hokey or cliche. We will leave the design ideas up to you but the following info should be included somewhere on the poster:
NAME OF SCHOOL
ADDRESS
PHONE
WEBSITE
"Winter Holidays ROCK" "3-5 day band camp for the rock star in YOU" (this font should remain changeable for future events)
Our company logo (attached)

Also, please add "Sound Roots presents" above the "Winter holidays rock..." part. Ultimately I would like to use this poster design for different events-- changing out the info for the camp for other events so the design focus should be on the edgy modern music school and not on the rock camp specifically.

The poster should be delivered in layered format so that we can charge the text as needed for future use.

  • Dear Ch Is it compulsory to use Photoshop layered file or we can use something else like Illustrator
  • Omdesigns...yes a PhotoShop layered file would be perfect. Thanks.
  • Dear Ch, Can we do this in a Photoshop format? All layered including texts are editable?
  • Thanks for the feedback.. will come up with another design in the coming days. Cheers!
  • Sorry but honestly, this still looks really generic. We are looking for something with a lot more originality- something that will really stand out from many other posters on a bulletin board or telephone pole. We still really like the color you chose. We encourage you to try again.
  • Dear CH This is my improve version.. on the left side is what the background looks like..I included it in presentation so that you will know what it looks like and since the presentation dimension is small its not that visible. cheers

  • see notes for feedback
  • Please add color to your designs. We are looking for something bright and bold.
  • Thanks for the entry. I would really like to see brighter, bolder and really eye catching. Please see our revised brief about what we are looking for. We hope you will try again!
  • #1 I like the color of this background and the font used for the holidays rock but I would like to see more energy and style. The background is pretty plain and a bit too simple. Think about adding some abstract music notes, or even sound waves or just some cool patterns. Also, please add "Sound Roots presents" above the "Winter holidays rock..." part. Ultimately I would like to use this for different events changing out the info for the camp for other events so the design focus should be on the edgy modern music school and not on the rock camp specifically.
  • I like the background with our watermarke very much. I dont love the font and I would like to see our logo on the bottom stand out more. good first try!
  • eliminating as a duplicate
  • I think 10 and 9 ar the same, correct? I like the edgy style of this one but its a little too dark. We like bright colors!
  • I like this-- mostly I like the image of the guy floating. I also like the "mixed media" vibe. I feel it needs to be a little harder and not quite so "floating away" happy
  • About #15 and #14 Dear Sir/ Madam, Thanks for your feedback. Submitted modified version and also have a new design. Thanks and Regards,
  • I like the insruments silhouette and the placement of them. The general feel is too wintery. It is.likely we would keep this design for summer camp posters as well so it should be more neutral.
  • Very cool...love the colors.and excellent text placement. This may ne a bit too rock n roll on general though considering we may use the background for another event in the future. Can you keep it edgy while being more vague about the style of music?
  • I really like the colors you used here and even though I wouldn't have thought I would like it, the background is really.cool and the font works well. I do feel like there is a lot of empty.space in the top left. Maybe larger notes or a player silhouette? I am open to other ideas as well.
  • Dexmind, a layered psd file is best. Thanks!
