Thanks for visiting. I am looking for 5 designs for a new T-Shirt Collection. I will award 1 top design $90 and I also will be choosing up to 4 runner up entries at $45 for a total of $270 being awarded for this contest. A freelancer can win more than one time if he desires to try his hand at more than one design. I will only be choosing runner-ups that I really like, if I don't choose all 4 please understand that sometimes the design just isn't what a Contest Holder is looking for and hold your head high for the next opportunity.
This collection is meant to be positive...inspiring/motivating the wearer to improve themselves using unique wildlife art. By wildlife I mean animals, birds, reptiles, sea creatures and fish, and anything you think would be in areas without much human contact such as the Amazon, the oceans, or other such areas. You can choose which creatures you use as long as it captures the significance of the design. Each design should have a specific meaning/theme which I detail below.
The style I am looking for is a mix of surreal/stylized/abstract art, but you can lean towards a particular one if your creative style calls for it. I want a design that gets more interesting the more you look at it. The more unique and creative, the better. Text in the designs should not stand out from a distance and should be implemented into the art in interesting ways that makes it an integral part of the design. If you have to take a second glance to see the text inside your design, then you are headed in the right direction.
For your design, color choices are white, black, and gray. I only want you to use 1 or 2 colors in the design, no gradients, only solid colors. Shirt color is your choice. Source file art board size should be 13x19. You can use either Photoshop or Illustrator for your design, but I give priority to Illustrator for its easy future-editing feature. In the source file, please make it easy for me to change design colors if I need to in the future. I am not a pro like you guys with the design programs. ;-)
Here are the general meanings of the 5 designs along with a little idea to spark your creativity, but you can choose to do your own thing if you have something in mind. Again... you can choose what creatures/animals you use to capture the significance of the design. The phrase in "quotes" is what needs to be integrated into the art in a cool way.
1. "Open-Minded"- design can be an elephant eating peanuts that say "idea" on them and dropping them in his head which is a cage with an open door. meaning of this design is about not being afraid to let new ideas into our lives/mind.
2. ***A winner for this design has been chosen, please only work on one of the other 4 designs. Thanks!***
3. "Toxicity"- design could be showing someone walking through rainforest unaware of the toxic animals(snakes/spiders/etc.) that are surrounding him. the meaning of this design is to stay away from toxic/negative people in our lives.
4. "Get Up"- design could be of a creature using fortitude to get back up after falling. significance of design is about not giving up on yourself when something doesn't go your way.
5. "Limitless"- design could be of an animal doing an exaggerated/incredible/impossible feat. theme of this design is about not setting limits on yourself and achieving what most people would think is impossible.
Please do not message me in public board asking me to check your entry. Trust me, I will be looking carefully through "all designs".
I have attached a zip file with examples/ideas to get you going. Whoever can successfully combine those styles, in a cool and unique design with the correct meaning, will be the winner. Don't be afraid to add your own touch to your design if need be.
If you guys have any questions please let me know. Good luck and thank you all!
“Great designer. Listens to instructions carefully and fully intends to convey the idea of the design. Recommended!”
