Located in Puerto Rico we have retail gift stores and a line of Gourmet Caribbean Seasonings, Crushed Pepper Sauces and other tropical treats.
What's your vision?
We have a line of gourmet food products and want to design some t-shirts featuring the product line/brand. I envision having a leading statement or saying that has a double meaning appealing to the wearer's ego or sense of humor, but is actually talking about the products. Below are some of the ideas in mind. Feel free to come up with any other clever suggestions. Spice up your life I’ve got great taste I’m packin heat Get your pepper up Well seasoned I’m hot for you Is that a pepper in your pocket? Feel the heat I’m 100% naturally hot So your mission is to come up with the best design you can incorporating one of these sayings (or another one you might think of)and a clever or humourous design. I imagined that it may be better to give you the opportunity to have a broader subject range and opportunity to be more creative. If you feel you want me to be more specific and give you less flexibilty let me know. Here is a link so you can see the actual products. http://www.caribbeantrading.com/shop/categories/Caribbean-Trading-Gourmet/ I am attaching a word doc with various signage and other designs we are currently using so you can get a feel for the brand. I also have original files for them if you need them for any elements. If you want access to these files ftp://ftp.caribbeantrading.com/ user name 99designs password carpacpr123 I have included some other t-shirt designs that we have done. It is important to note that we currently have two retail locations. One is on a private island called Palomino Island and the other is at the base of El Yunque, a National Forest and the only tropical rainforest in the US Park System. In these designs we put most of the emphasis in the destination and less on our brand. We felt that the destination was going to be the key factor in the sales of these designs but at the same time we have put a subtle emphasis and integrated our website and logo in the designs as well. On this and other product related designs we will of course have more emphasis on the brand. But at the same time because the brand is not well known and most likely won't sell the shirts because of the brand I want to have the designs be clever and have double meanings that can give them appeal for the wearer's ego and sense of humor but in reality they are all about the brand. This will be one of several product related designs that we will do so my hope is to find a designer(s) that we can continue to work with to develop other designs. Also, a further note is we want to develop many more designs that will be about Caribbean Lifestyle themes with our developed signature style of design. These designs will be about nautical, tropical, Island feel and various other Caribbean related themes with a vintage feel. I mention all of this so you know there is more opportunity than this one project. Please keep in mind that these will be printed on blank shirts and not printed first and the shirt built so we do not want any wrap around designs or designs that start on the front or back and go onto the sleeves, etc. We are open to designs in any reasonable amount of colors. We will need to have the final art in AI or PSD files. We look forward to answer any questions you have and assist you in any way possible.
Target audience are tourists that are middle to upper middle income. Most likely will know Tommy Bahamas, Caribbean Soul and other resort brands. It's all about Caribbean kick off your shoes and relax in the warm tropical sun kind of attitude. This is the first attempt on 99 Designs. Apparently I am not able to guarantee this contest which seems a bit silly. If you're familiar with E-Lance you can check out my profile to see that we are legit and although it is a different format my award ratio is very high. My username is cantanu on E-Lance. Thanks
