How StuartToddWhitworth started their other graphic design journey
Stuart Todd Whitworth
Hello, I'm Stuart Todd Whitworth and I'm a singer/songwriter in the United States. I'm releasing my new album, "If All Else Fails" this spring 2011. I believe that the song is always the key, start with a good song and then arrange/produce it appropriately. I tend to include a lot of orchestral elements in addition to the standard band instrumentation. I always write a broad range of songs that feel quite different from each other. If you've heard one of my songs, you definitely have not heard them all. Many bands'/artists' albums feel exactly the same from song to song... not the case with this album. Feel free to email me with any questions you may have.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
My target audience is definitely NOT narrow. Listen to my songs on my YouTube channel: MyAlbumDemos
I do not want any photos of myself anywhere on the album artwork. I'd rather market my name "Stuart Todd Whitworth" and my music. So on the album cover, of course "Stuart Todd Whitworth" and "If All Else Fails" (you can choose upper case, lower case, or all caps letters as you see fit). Other than that, I'm completely open to your ideas. I would like it to be striking and eye-catching. It can include photography or design or both. It can be simple or it can be complex. But I don't want pictures of musical instruments. Look up a bunch of album covers online for ideas if you'd like. This album encompasses a very broad spectrum of emotions. I've posted 5 of the 11 songs from the album (not the finals, just demos) on YouTube. My YouTube channel is called MyAlbumDemos. Important to listen to all 5 songs to understand the scope of this album.
I will also likely hire the winner to do the rest of the album artwork (back cover, insert booklet, etc.)
The winner also stands a good chance of doing all my music artwork (website, merchandise, etc.) in the future as well.
The sky is the limit, make this album cover exactly what you want it to be.
