Design the Official Counting Crows Tour Poster
Counting Crows, rockers from California, are set to embark on a world tour this spring in support of their latest release, Underwater Sunshine.
Design the official poster to celebrate the Underwater Sunshine tour. One winner will receive $500 and a Counting Crows prize pack.
Suggested Theme & Style Guidelines
Last year, Counting Crows asked our Allies to create the Underwater Sunshine album cover. There were a ton of fantastic entries and the winner, "ivan", designed a killer album (shown below).
Be inspired by this design and the rest of the entries from the Editors' Picks Gallery from the Underwater Sunshine contest to get a feel for the band's aesthetic preference.
Use these designs as a guide ONLY and make sure to engineer your own unique and original design.
