Contest Brief

I need text (name of album - Upstairs Downstairs Romance) with my photo and a frame in lime-green.

Please follow guidelines: Creating a compelling album cover for your Spotify release involves several key guidelines:

Visual Impact
1. **Simplicity**: Aim for a clean, uncluttered design that stands out even as a small thumbnail.
2. **Bold Colors**: Use contrasting colors to ensure your album cover catches the eye.
3. **Readable Text**: If you include text, make sure it’s legible. Avoid overly decorative fonts.

### Technical Specifications
1. **Size and Format**: The ideal size is 3000 x 3000 pixels in JPEG or PNG format.
2. **Resolution**: Use a resolution of 72 dpi (dots per inch) to ensure good quality on screens.
3. **File Size**: Keep the file size below 10MB for easy uploading.

### Branding and Cohesion
1. **Consistency**: Ensure the cover aligns with your overall branding and the mood of your music.
2. **Logo and Artist Name**: Consider including your logo or artist name to enhance brand recognition.

### Creativity and Uniqueness
1. **Original Art**: Use original artwork or high-quality images that reflect the theme and tone of your album.
2. **Avoid Clichés**: Strive for a unique design that sets you apart from other artists.

### Legal Considerations
1. **Copyright**: Ensure you have the rights to use all images and fonts included in your design.
2. **Licensing**: If using stock images, adhere to the licensing agreements and avoid using images marked for editorial use only.

### Final Touches
1. **Test on Various Devices**: Preview your cover on different devices to ensure it looks good across all platforms.
2. **Feedback**: Get feedback from friends or fans before finalizing your design.

### Tools and Resources
1. **Design Software**: Use tools like Adobe Photoshop, Canva, or GIMP to create your cover.
2. **Templates**: Utilize album cover templates available online for guidance and inspiration.

By following these guidelines, you'll create a visually appealing and effective album cover for your Spotify release that attracts listeners and complements your music.
