Please refer to the Pin board at http://goo.gl/ilpcnF for more examples of what we're looking for.
We're looking to use this contest to find a designer to work with for the rest of our company's creative design needs. Product labels, packaging, online advertisements, and more. If we like your style and we think we can work together long-term, there will be much more work after the contest.
NOTE: I realize I should have explained this initially. Bonnie and Clyde were bank robbers in the late 20s, early 30s (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bonnie_and_Clyde). There has to be an element in the design to hint at that past era. We don't want anything offensive, but they wouldn't be cartoony/super jovial. Their attitude would be a little cocky/self-assured.
OUR MAIN MUST-HAVES
-For the logo: we're looking to have a white female cat (blue eyes) and a brown or black male dog (green eyes) as the characters (Bonnie and Clyde), in classic 30s to 50s attire
-We'd like them presented from the shoulders up OR just their faces
-If you present them face only, keep in mind you have to find a way to denote the old-school reference like a type of hat or bonnet.
-We'd like it without any vehicles, cigars, guns, or anything that could be construed as offensive. The rest of the design is flexible/up in the air, but we need to have those two characters as outlined
-They can be flat/stylish/cartoony/sketched ─ whatever you think might look amazing.
No clip-art, copyrighted/licensed material, etc. This work must be 100% original.
WHAT WE OFFER
More work after the contest, easily managed expectations, frequent and honest communication, and prompt payment of invoices.
If you have any questions about the contest, please don't be shy to send us a message! We look forward to your submissions and potentially working together in the future.
