Graphic Flux Chlallenge

You are invited you to join Graphic Flux – A Collective Graphic Design Blogging
This project can also be joined by non Blog Catalog members. Thanks to
for the concept and powering the challenge!

Get ready to push your pixels to the max for the June Graphic Flux Challenge! Your mission is to create one CD artwork cover design for a fictional indie band. The parameters are as follows:

The group's name is Xerces. They are your countrymen and need to make a global impact with this release. Groundbreaking artwork for their CD will be used to carry over to their other media to create a strong connection to the group. Xerces' main focus is music for rain forests. They are all about letting the world know about this incredible but shrinking resource. They would like the CD artwork to reflect their passion for rain forests. Xerces wants to keep the artwork 4-color and their only other requirement is to use the font face 'Petie Boy' available for a free download from Bittbox

CD Cover art Dimensions
: 4.75" Width x 4.75" High
Front Design Only - No back
is the band's name: Xerces

What to Do?

In every month's round, we will set a new graphic design task for the participants. We think that different theme challenge in monthly time line set would encourage you to stay creative with more challenging task.
We will choose the blog host every month to showcase all the entries. If you are a Blog Catalog user, and has been actively involved in our group called Blog Catalog Graphic Design Group, then your chance to be chosen as the host blog for this project should be more. As we announce the new monthly round task, give yourself time to design as what will be described in Graphic Identity blog or the host Blog! We think that monthly round timeline should give all the participants to design and relax into pure creative time.Create your graphic design based on the theme’s format and rules. When you are finished with your design, just post it in your blog and don’t forget to link back to the chosen host blog and to the Graphic Flux announcement post on the host blog itself. If you are not a blogger, you can always write a guest post about your submission design on my blog or your friend’s blog. Describe your design process tricks and tips or just share the story of why you come up with your design.
We will notice that you are in the game, by contacting to the Graphic Flux blog host of the month via email or post a comment to the Graphic Flux announcement post and include:
. Your name
. Your blog name and URL
. Your design post permalink
The deadline for each entry submission would be in the date of 30th every month. Once the submissions are in, the host blog will pick some of the best designs and showcase them on a round up post in the following month. You are allowed to contribute only one design per project/site. You can submit to this blog to Psiplex, the hosting site for this month at: or, if you use Flickr, you can submit to this public link: Just click the add photos or video link to add your submission.
