"FROM TEAMTUNSTALL: Creative Allies has just launched a design contest to create a commemorative poster around KT’s new album release & North American tour with the winner to receive a cash prize. Come and join in! Get more details & enter here: https://creativeallies.com/contests/822 ... t-tunstall "

Quote:
Create Tour Art for KT Tunstall's Invisible Empire // Crescent Moon
Singer-songwriter KT Tunstall‘s stunning new album Invisible Empire // Crescent Moon is set for an August 6 release in the U.S. on Blue Note Records.

Design a commemorative tour poster for KT Tunstall's Invisible Empire // Crescent Moon inspired by the new album and one or more locations on her upcoming tour.

One winner will receive $500 and four runners up will receive $250.

Suggested Theme & Style Guidelines
KT describes the earthy and ethereal Invisible Empire // Crescent Moon as “full of songs from the heart,” adding “I followed my path of truth and ended up in a different place.”

We are asking that as a designer, you convey this theme of creating "from the heart" in your artwork. KT also suggests:

"As a designer, you can incorporate the nature of the two halves of the record; the first half a deep knowing that trouble is ahead, the second half a rebirth and letting life take over.

Also, The Sonoran desert was a big part of this record, driving through the Saguaros in a 1960's white Barracuda..."

You may use one of the stops on her tour as your main inspiration or you can choose to include all of the dates on your design.


Any art amateurs? :wink:

I'm not really creative, but at the moment I'm trying to do something. I'm not sure I'll manage to finish it though! :p I may post it here so that you'll tell me what you think about it.

I'm sure you can do something :) Or maybe someone can help you?

(funny that we speak in english while we're french :wink: )

En effet :wink:

My 4yr old son draws better than me and I can't get my way through photoshop, so we can fairly say I won't manage to create anything at all :lol:

lol! I've never used photoshop too, so maybe this missing step will prevent me from finishing the project. :lol:

But who will manage to do the poster? hmmm.... :wink:

Yeah! Do it! :smt023 :wink:

This is what I was fearing, that all the designs may all look like each other. There are few pics on the website, and the atmosphere that she describes and all that she says, in fact, don't allow loads of possibilites. It's gonna be tough!!
Where have you seen the ones already entered?

I'd love to make one but I've never even been in the States, let alone that I'm going to any of these gigs, isn't that odd?

No I don't think so. :wink: It's the same for me. And they say that you have to use one city of the list or the place where she drove, filmed and found her inspiration : the desert. This is what I choose. And so all the tour dates have to be on the poster. So, you can make one. :) There's nothing to lose :wink:

Alright, I made one. Or actually, several versions of one :lol: Dunno which one to enter yet!
But indeed there's not that much variety to bring when there need to be so many things in it, so mine's kinda predictable too. Let's see how it does though! :smt023

How's yours going?

The problem is that I do the poster on a sheet, and I don't know how to put it on photoshop, so I need practicing! I'm a bit reassured, cause mine doesn't look like the ones already entered!
What about you?

times like this I wish I took after the grandparents who were painters and not the handsome and intelligent side of the dysfunctional tree.
