What's your vision?
I am looking for a set of five (5) illustrations for a crime thriller taking place in Shanghai (these will be used on the website too). The title will be 被杀 - BÈISHā - GETÖTET (please substitute an A for the a, don't know how to input it here...) The story is about a young asian prostitute who's searching the killer of her friend. Being what she is, she cannot expect much help from the police so she will need some unusual methods. This is a novel for adults and so should be the illustrations. It's about blood, gore, violence and sex. Still, they shouldn't be too explicit. Ideally, it's the reader who composes the image in his mind. The main hero(ine) shouldn't be shown at all, at least not in detail. It would be too hard to meet all my descriptions in the book. Maybe one could see her from behind. If the illustrations feature the victims (there are five of them, all will be killed with a bread knife), they must be asian and young. The killer shouldn't be visible. It would be good to see that all this is happening in Shanghai (although all the murders will happen inside of appartments, not on the streets). You can use my photos at http://www.flickr.com/photos/mmatting/ I imagine the illustrations as a kind of snapshots. They don't tell the story but somehow set the scene. I can imagine different settings: - a raunchy bar with live music where the women meet their clients- different crime scenes with or without victim - a massage parlor where women work with their clients (they're doing actuall massage too) - lonely girl looking out of the window, overlooking the city. It's a dark place. - girl going to work in the evening - symbolic things: large knive with blood stains, blood in bathroom / bathtub... you name it. BTW, there is no street prostitution in China. In the end, I am willing to buy illustrations from more than one winner (depending on quality, of course). Also, I will pay Euro 50 extra if you send me your sketches afterwards so I can use them for a "making of".

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their other art or illustration.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Matthias Matting collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
