Suggested Theme & Style Guidelines
Check out the video below from Matisyahu to get an idea of his aesthetic vision: http://youtu.be/aZjS8thNLuI
We are open to your own interpretations of Matisyahu’s concept and originality is highly encouraged. But be sure to include these key elements in your design.
- The palm of a hand facing upward.
- A flame inside the palm, ideally created out of water.
- Use the symbolism of the biblical “Burning Bush” for more inspiration.
There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire out of a bush; he looked and the bush was blazing, yet it was not consumed. IMPORTANT: If you would like to include the album title in your artwork, please be sure to spell it “AKEDA“. For those of you who have spelled it “AKEDAH”, your submissions will still be considered and will not be penalized for the different spelling.
