An map of an imaginary landscape, to be used on a cd cover.
A lot of inspiration can be found here: https://nl.pinterest.com/wesselzwee…rtografie/.
Some examples I find interesting:

Some topographical elements you may include:
- A railway track, since trains are a musical theme (songs Einder Express, Derailed).
- A bridge over which the railway runs (song Le passage).
- A hill or mountain (song Hannibal).
- Water and/or sea, since Zilverklif is a literal translation of 'silver cliff'.
- A wind rose.
- Maybe some other elements too, as long it will not become too crowdy.
And one special creative suggestion, not required, just for inspiration:
- The map is not completely finished yet (representing the unknown part of life) and on the right side you see a hand still drawing, something like the hand here: https://nl.pinterest.com/pin/118782508907128630/
Dimensions: approx. 10 cm width x 9 cm height. So on all sides there is some white space left, and some extra space above the map for the artist name and album name. And just forget the legenda, I assume 10x9 cm is just too small for that.
- 10x10 cm, and put the artist and album name *in* the map, not above it.
- much smaller, e.g. 5x5 cm, like Paul Simon's Graceland: https://nl.pinterest.com/pin/118782508907131176/
This illustration may also be used in smaller dimensions on Spotify. No problem if some details will get lost, as long the overall image remains recognizable.
Colours: I like natural colours.
Style: classy and timeless, a map that does not look outdated within 20 or 30 years.
You don't have to bother about typography. This contest is only about the map, not the rest of the cd cover.
