A Ransom Note by ChaosEmeraldHunter A Ransom Note by ChaosEmeraldHunter
All right...I have no clue where to submit this. I'm HOPING this is the right place, as it IS a mixed media thing.

This is for a Typography class project.

We had to create a "traditional" ransom note. By traditional, I mean cutting and pasting different letters to form the words. And, in the words of the teacher, "Any drunk son of a bitch can make a ransom note, but at least try to makes yours look like a graphic designer made it."

Then we had to scan the note and do whatever we want with it. One guy is even making it look like an actual kidnapping...He's staging one with a friend and everything.

I, on the other hand, am making a CD cover. And not JUST the front cover. I'm making the CD design, track list, everything. :) This is the front cover. The track listing isn't interesting enough to submit.

Hoping I get an A on this one.

The background and heart are from sxc.hu, by the way.

I dig it; the idea, that is. The phrasing is a bit confusing: I read it as "Give my back (heart), get back ur life."

I do like the "Ur" and I like the background, though. But if you're going at traditional-ransom-note-as-CD-cover, I'm not sure it's fully appropriate. At least not literally speaking; you put ransom note letters on other paper; a news paper or something.

Not that it doesn't work this way -- and that I don't like it, because I do -- I'm just trying to make a note of your intentions and what I see as you've achieved.

o_o wow...that's pretty good.

Looks like a fair amount of effort went into that.

Really like how there's also kind of a blood splatter or something under the heart--interesting touch somehow.
