We sell musical instruments (such as guitars and keyboards - "rock n roll" / modern, not orchestral) and recording / PA equipment to musicians and producers, both online and through our store in Edinburgh, UK.
Have a look at our website - http://www.reddogmusic.co.uk - to get an idea of what we sell and how we present ourselves.
We are looking for a fun, high impact image for the cover of our quarterly A5-sized magazine, "The Dog". The magazine has product reviews and tips on making music, and appeals to all sorts of modern music players and makers.
The only requirements are that the image / design has something to do with music making (e.g. guitars, keyboards, speakers - any of the things we sell) and also something to do with dogs!
We only need an image, we will get our own designers to do any text. Obviously the image should leave room for the title of the magazine and any other front cover text.
Previous issues of the magazine can be seen here:-
Please note, however, that we are looking for something different each time!
Although the design doesn't have to be in the exact style of the magazine, it obviously needs to work in context. The design style is quite "cut and paste" / lo-fi - almost like a "'zine".
We are also toying with the idea of releasing a T-shirt each time we release a magazine, so if the design also worked as a T-shirt that would be a bonus (though not essential).
