This project is to design the case cover art and disk art for a DVD package. We've made a DVD of science experiments that students can do at home and learn essentials of science from. You can sort of think of this as Bill Nye the Science Guy sort of stuff....but not as wacky. It is important to know that the artwork shouldn't be targeted just to kids. It should be professional, sophisticated looking but can have a slightly playful tone. Appealing for kids to look at but not so wacky that adults would be turned off. We have lots of adult learners using our DVDs to learn. Think "Mythbusters". You'll be designing the art for the DVD case and also for the face of the DVD disk. Notes: - There will be 2 disks in the package so you will need some small area on the disk face to indicate "Disk 1" or "Disk 2". - You'll need to leave some white space on the back of the case for our UPC barcode. - I have included a zip file. In there is our logo, some screenshots, and some PDF files that have EPS files in them. You must use these EPS files as a template when designing. Put them in a bottom layer of the Adobe Illustrator file and draw on top. The DVD print shop needs it done this way. I require final files in Illustrator format. Things I like: - Again, you can be playful but not too playful. Walk a line between sophistication and appeal to kids. Visit ScienceAndMath.com to view a video clip and see what the product is all about. - You have our logo which should be featured somewhere. I like those colors. You can use punches of red or other colors to make things stand out if it adds to the design. - Here is a list of projects on 99designs that I like. Don't copy them, but just for reference. Two of these is actually a DVD project. https://99designs.com/print-design/contests/design-next-dvd-cover-mission-imperative-114353/entries https://99designs.com/print-design/contests/packaging-dvd-iphone-course-learnapps-org-107325 https://99designs.com/print-design/contests/ebook-cover-needed-pricing-writing-book-114593 https://99designs.com/print-design/contests/days-property-management-book-needs-cover-art-111097 https://99designs.com/print-design/contests/create-next-brochure-pod-design-111755 https://99designs.com/print-design/contests/set-packaging-design-theme-brand-human-creations-110184 Copy for Front Cover: - Title of DVD is "Amazing Science!: Volume 1" - Subtitle is: "Easy Experiments That Make Science Exciting!" Copy for Back Cover: Description: Learn fundamental principles of science through Amazing Science Experiments! You'll learn about electricity, magnetism, heat, temperature, pressure, surface tension, buoyancy, and much more. For every demonstration, a complete materials list is given, and each experiment features multiple camera views so you can see exactly what happens. Most importantly, every concept is explained in a step-by-step fashion. You'll not only be amazed - you'll understand the science behind every experiment!

Please be creative. The sky is the limit on this. I want you to visit www.ScienceAndMath.com and watch some of my experiment videos. Try to understand what this product is about. You're creating packaging that will help educate and entertain kids and adults. When you look at the packaging you should instantly think "professional", "fun", "informative". Don't go too cheesy but you can be a little playful. I've linked several designs that I like in the description of work. You notice that all of them look really slick and polished. This is what I am after here. One more thing. I have attached some screenshots of a few of the experiments. You should create at least one design that features some of these screenshots somewhere. But you can also feel free to create a design without these screenshots - just for variety. Just ask yourself, if you were browsing at the store, what would catch your eye? What would make you instantly interested to pick up this DVD?

Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Jason.gibson 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.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
