Kilpailun tehtävänanto

Sealed entries will be disqualified, I will award the designer that comes up with the most original ideas based on my direction. I want everyone to be able to see each other's work so I can steer the direction by using examples. I will not allow a copy cat to win so do not worry about that, if the design is close enough I will award the winner and do any minor updates in the handover or a separate project. Look at my reviews to see that designers are happy with how I judge. Also if there is strong enough work from several designers I will award runner-ups or start private projects to award designers that deserve it as well as keep in touch for future work!

The objective is to make a woman's T-shirt design that is cute and fashionable while incorporating our brands main icon, the red panda show here:

Horrific sketch of what I want:

#11 though has changed my mind - the ears should be one on the left upper corner of the R and the other on the upper right corner of the D so that the ears can be bigger and more noticeable.

The reason I want the tail to have an outline effect and for the letters to be so tall and have a bolder outline is to place the focus on the RED PANDA rather than the tail. You need to quickly look at the picture and make sure your eyes read RED PANDA first, look at the tail second.

Type of font/style to start with as a base:

[url removed, login to view]

You may add some design features to the outline font if you think it helps your design. We do want a tall, thin, feminine font though. Adding some flair and character to it could be good.

*** White outline/silouette design on black shirt ***

1) The t-shirt will use the words RED PANDA (all caps) in a slight ARC - do NOT make the words go straight across

2) The font will be blocked-letter-outline style as shown in my horrific sketch (i.e. you will be able to see the black t-shirt background inside the white outline letters, ears, and tail.

3) A pair of red panda ears will come up, out of the top of the R (upper left corner) and the other on the upper right corner of the D in RED - there will be no line separating the ears and the letter. The line going up the side of the R will lead into the outline pf the left ear and back down to the letter. Same goes for the top line of the D for the right ear. The ears outlines inner ear will have a fur like texture to their ear to make them furry and animal-like

4) From the last A in PANDA there will be a red panda striped tail (also outline, no fill-in, with some fur like texture for the stripes and edge outline of the tail) will wrap and curl under for the words to rest on top of. The tail should look thick, healthy, and bushy.

5) The tail should have 7 off-color stripes (13-14 total if you count the "stripes" that match the color of the red panda's body fur as well) to accurately represent the red panda animal

6) The letters should be 3 times as tall in height as the tail is thick. So if you stacked 3 tails horizontally on top of each other it would be the same height as the tall skinny letters. The reason for this is that it is a brand shirt and I want attention drawn first to RED PANDA, then to the tail that acts as a great artistic decoration. If the tail is too big it draws all the attention.

***Most importantly***
- The ears and tail must not be confused as a house cat's or a raccoon's.
- The design cannot look overly cartoonish and childish. Women 18+ years old must be interested in wearing.
- Want the design to rather be more fun, artistic, and sexy. For example it could be better for the ears to have a somewhat devilish but cute look.

    Hi all, I didn't have as much involvement in this contest compared to others due to a busy schedule lately. I am awarding medokhaled the winner because his is the closest to combining everything I was looking for. I am awarding heartpalette and purplepuddle each awards of $10 each through private projects for all their ideas and revisions.

    All the latest ones are improvements, the letters still have to be much taller, even #37's letters are not tall enough in comparison to the tail they still need to be much taller.

    #32 is now slightly in the lead followed by #28 and #31. The outline is now more bold and the ears have a greater presence. My updates are still all spelled out below in earlier comments to improve these entries.

    A much more faded version of #29's tail effects is what I am aiming for as far as how much is what I am looking for as far as how much the stripes stand out. #28 and #31's tail outlines are too empty looking. Need a happy medium between the two.

    #31 is strongly in the runner up position behind #28 and #29. I has the best tail positioning and its letters have improved. It still needs to have better tail effects and needs its letters taller, tighter like #29 and its letters need a bolder outline like #28. Ears have to bigger and split up between R and D.

    • 2 vuotta sitten

    I still would like to see the ears bigger like #11 and split up so one ear is on the R and the other is on the D.

    #15 is still the only entry that has the arc of the tail matching the arc of the letters like my drawing. The letters softly rest on the tail, both of them have an arc they follow together. #28 and #29's tails go too straight across , the wave in #15's tail also gives it more life, instead of looking like the tail is dead and pinned on the letters rather than being alive and apart of the letters.

    #28 and #29 are slight improvements over their old selves still tied to each other for the lead. #29's tail stripe effects are great, but could be much more faded and have the outline of the letters thicker... this will produce a look where the RED PANDA words get more attention like in #28.

    I must be away for the next 3-4 hours. Good luck everyone! Fun contest so far. Also FYI to @purplepuddle and others.... if there are some works that are worthy of runner-ups I usually end up making a deal to buy those works as well from the runner-ups and keep them as business contacts for future work. So again please don't be afraid of copy-cats and competition. If I see someone that works hard and has original ideas I am sure to reward them and keep in touch!

    Clarification: #26 now has the much stronger font style outlined, tail positioning and better ears, #22 has better letter sizing and arc. Both have great tail effects in different ways, hard to choose between them in that regard...

    4) The bottom of the E needs to be readable, it disappears into the tail

    #26 Updates: 1) Need a slightly larger arc for the words and tail 2) Move the left to the top left of the R, move the right ear over to the upper right of the D in RED like #11 3) Letter font must be taller in proportion to the tail, again, font height 3 times as tall as the tail's width, the font in #26 is only about 2 times as tall

    To clarify #17's tail is best in its thickness and soft feminine look. #15 has the right amount of stripes though. This is why #17 is in the lead it is closest to being the best in every regard.

      In my mind that red panda has about 6 stripes

    #22 is now in the lead because the tail effect is great, it uses a soft shadowing and negative space sketch look. Improvements needed: 1) the tail must rest snuggly under the letters like number #17 2) the letters must be a bit skinnier and taller like #17 3) the tail has 9 stripes, it should have 6 wider stripes 4) the tail is too skinny at the beginning and too wide at the end - #17 has the correct tail proportions 5) the top line of the R in RED should seamlessly connect to the ears like in #20

      as mentioned before the "Soft" Sketchy look can cause issue with certain print processes when it comes to putting it on a shirt, may be worth thinking about

    To clarify for everyone: #22 has the best tail effects, letter arc/spacing - #17 has the best tail positioning and proportions and letter height/spacing - #11 has the best ears... I actually like how #11 splits the ears one on the R the other on the D... I think that is better I am changing my brief to reflect this

    Currently: #17 has the best letter proportions (need to be outlined), #15 has the best tail (stripes need to be outlines, not filled in), #11 has the best ears and letter arc/spacing

    6) the tail stripes should be OUTLINES also... use fur texture sketching to detail the stripes, but they should NOT be filled in - this entire design is based around being a negative space silouette

    5) The letters must be a little taller and the tail a little thinner.... the letters should be 3 times the height of the tail's thickness... see my drawing for correct proportions:

    #17 is now in the lead yet it still has improvements that can be made. 1) The letters need to be outlines, not solid 2) the tail must have a few more stripes - 6 total (I will put this in the brief because I forgot) 3) the letters must be on an ARC - NOT straight across 4) The ears must be bigger

    A combination of #15 and #11 is heading in the right direction.

    • 2 vuotta sitten
  • RPWA
    Kilpailun järjestäjä
    • 2 vuotta sitten

    #11 still has the best ears and hair detail, also the letters are bigger and more towards the proportions I want. The letters still should be even taller, thinner, and more crowded together as in my drawing.

    • 2 vuotta sitten
  • RPWA
    Kilpailun järjestäjä
    • 2 vuotta sitten

    Also the stripes of the tail should not be filled in, they should be fur-textured silouettes.

    • 2 vuotta sitten
  • RPWA
    Kilpailun järjestäjä
    • 2 vuotta sitten

    #15 is the best now, the letters have to be 3 times as tall as the tail width. In #15 the tail is much too thick compared to the height the letters. The letters should also be more crowded together as in my drawing.

    Also I would like the tail to be a continuous line that comes out of the back edge of the last A in PANDA and have the tail wrap all the way up and under the words.

    • 2 vuotta sitten

    #11 is the best so far, I would like the ears to be apart of the outline of the top of the R so the outline that makes up the top of the R and the ears is continuous.
