Album Artwork Needed

Hi,

I have always dabbled in graphic design, video/audio production, etc. but unfortunately never took as much time to learn photoshop as much as I wish I would have as I delve more into the video production field more so.

Well, a long time friend who I always helped in my home studio for years always made good music that was appreciated locally and actually introduced him to well known people in the hip hop industry once I moved to a city where it was very prevalent and things were looking really good for him once I connected him with a Big Daddy Kane’s management and official DJ and actually was in the process of getting a legit shot. But long story short, legal trouble that was actually ridiculous caught up with him (nothing violent or anything - just drug related from things years ago that caught up with him) and now it seems after our whole year of hard work on a mixtape and full original album by a highly respected producer - it seems the circumstances halted it momentarily.

Basically what I’m asking here is if there’s someone that could create a simple and clean mixtape cover for a project we’ve decided to release with all of the awesome music we’ve made this past year and a half instead of never releasing. I would definitely design one myself but currently I’m in the process of building a new PC for video production and have nothing to design on at the moment.

I have his official logo and HQ photos to use - I’m pretty much just asking for a clean artwork so I can make cds to give out to make sure his work wasn’t a waste and because it’s in such high demand in this part of my state.

I’ll try to send as much money as possible but I just spent all of my money on new equipment.

Below I posted the logo and artwork for an unreleased mixtape I created. I can send HQ vectors of his logo and provide examples of what I’d like the artwork to look like.

You have no clue how much this would mean to me, the artist, and the many that were anticipating it. If anyone thinks they would be up to helping out please let me know - <<removed>>. Thank you!

This forum is mainly frequented by professionals who do this work for a living. Please either add a budget or wait for people to quote for the work, because as a forum we do not recommend anyone does work for 'I'll try to send as much money as possible' type prices.

Also, from a personal perspective, just because you've spent all your money on new equipment doesn't mean the price should be lower than we would normally charge, we've also had to, or even have to (stupid subscriptions...), pay for all our software/hardware too.

Precisely, I'm not asking you to send me your album because I like your music and I'll pay whatever I can.

Post or a budget or this thread will be locked.

Sorry guys, this thread came out horribly written lol. I was boarding a flight and was trying to type quickly. I understand how I made myself sound after reviewing.

What I was trying to say is I’m low on money and as much as the project means to me I probably won’t be able to spend as much as I would like - not trying to get a free project.

I’d like to only spend $40-50 on this project unless I see someone on here with a style that would truly compliment the look I’m going for.

Could anyone willing in that price range possibly post a link of their portfolio?

Sorry for the noobishness

Just to put this into context for you, unless you go from someone from India or the likes where they can live on that much for a year or maybe a student wanting to bolster their portfolio that sort of money would get you on average 1-2 hours of work from a professional designer (ie not someone who 'has a copy of photoshop'). What would be done in those 1-2 hours would likely end up being 'discussion time' (ie getting what you want down) and putting some text over an image.

In all honesty you'll likely need to up your funds for this.

Hey Outeroptics,

I totally understand you have a limited budget but as has been said, that may be a little too limited to attract a pro Designer to do it.

As suggested, you could seek someone like a student or someone starting out?
There may be someone who's into the music scene that would like to work designing in that area and it could be good for their folio and experience but I'd be careful how you word it as "good for your folio, possibility of future paid work" and all that can be offensive to a lot of people.

You may need to up your budget a little just to be fair but you could post it on a Uni/College notice board or something?

Have you considered a skill trade or trading something that you have or do that wouldn't cost you but someone else could need and maybe not afford?

I've done lots of these and I've found them to work pretty well for both parties.

You already have a logo and some great imagery.

I especially like that one that looks like he's making some Christmas cards or tree decorations in his bedroom.
He looks like a nice chap and everyone loves something that's hand made especially at Christmas.
It's the thought that counts.

Maybe you could trade some of them? ;)

I am currently a senior in high school close to graduation. I’d be willing to do it for you if you still require artwork
