CD COVER & CD ALBUM DESIGN

Most musicians seeking help creating their CD covers and albums want to know how to do it themselves to save themselves money. If that applies to you, go to my CD-Do-It-Yourself-Help-Page

Everyone else, read on:

Have your own design? Just need it brought to pro levels? I can almost guarantee I'm going to have to take your idea and recreate it from scratch, so I'll have to see it to give you an estimate or a bid.

(FYI: The difference between an estimate and a bid is, for an estimate the price isn't set in concrete, where a bid's price is locked in...unless you change the project midway through, then we adjust the bid price accordingly.)

If you need a full album design and graphics, we're still going to have to discuss your vision. If you can describe it or point to something similar, then that saves us both some time. If you want me to come up with something for you, I'll do some mock-ups, and then we can work from there. To do this, I need some money up front -- a third down of what I project the project will cost you. This is nonrefundable. (Yes, I know. Doesn't seem fair, does it, but I don't do work for free, just like you don't. ...Right?)

Do you get copyright? Yes.

All rights perpetually? No, not unless you pay a much higher price.

If you don't get all rights perpetually, is there a chance I'll use the art somewhere else. No, not unless your project never got off the ground or winds up dead. Then I might use elements of the art or even the art itself, less characteristics unique to your project. Rarely will I use the whole concept and design.

"But, you say, I already like this by [artist name]. Can you do something like that?"

No. That look, style, artwork belongs to that artist. You need to contact them, not me. I do my artwork; they do theirs. I'm broad in what I produce, but I won't mimic something another artist has created. That's their work. If you like it, pay them to create something similar for your project.

I can do my art, and I can reproduce YOUR artwork, bringing it up to pro levels, but I will not steal another artist's ideas and style just like I expect them not to steal mine.
