Award-winning DJ Nathan Tunes is running an artwork designing competition for his next music project, an extended play (EP) which he has done in collaboration with musician Charley.
The EP will be released once the competition is through.
“Attention all graphics designers from Malawi. So, Charley and I are finally releasing our EP titled Good vibes Only (G.V.O).
“We are looking for talented designers to participate in creating our main cover these are the pictures. The best one chosen wins,” wrote on Twitter Nathan Tunes.
In an interview, the DJ said the project is one way of not only selling the designers’ talent, but also introducing them to potential clients.
Said Nathan Tunes: “We engaged a lot of designers to enhance the industry and to also expose the talent on social media by bringing a healthy competition.
“It’s all marketing. Now people will know who these guys are and what they are capable of doing.”
So far, the competition, whose winner will receive over K200 000 and a contract to brand the EP project, has received good response with about 30 posters submitted via Twitter.
Said Nathan Tunes: “It’s a full project as they will be branding the entire EP as well as a merchandise line which includes things such as hoodies, T-shirts, hats and posters.
“The closing date for the competition is July 30. Once we get the winner, then we will announce the release date of the EP.”
