We are a 3-piece band of childhood friends who are going to release our debut EP on November 25, 2010. I want to get this twitter background up on that day as well.
Our target audience is anyone interested in music with a positive message... most likely people in the 16-35 age group.
The twitter background is needed for http://twitter.com/VicksburgMusic
The background needs to incorporate our album cover (see attached file) in some capacity as well as the following words: Vicksburg's debut album "We've a Story" available on iTunes now!
The font used for the band name "Vicksburg" on the album cover is called "Archeologicaps" and you can download it from dafont.com if you decide to use it.
I know for sure that I would like the distressed feel that we used on the album cover integrated into this background in some way. You don't necessarily have to use the exact background we used on the album, just something with the same feel... maybe something similar to the backgrounds you'll see on http://twitter.com/thirdday/ and http://twitter.com/brooks_dunn
Beyond that, I only want to say that I'm looking for something more than the album cover simply slapped up with the words I mentioned under it. That's not creative and not something I want to spend $100 on.
If you're reading this, chances are you've got some skills as a designer. Take this project on as if it were your own band. Please take the lack of details here not as a lack of care on my part, but more as an opportunity to take the reins and create something that you can truly be proud of.
I'll give as much feedback as possible to help clarify things throughout the process. Thanks in advance for your hard work!
