We are looking for original creative designs for our new products. It’s an entry level ski set for kids.
We want a nice eye catching pattern or drawing but feel free to add extra geometrical figures or elements that have to do with your creation. The design is for a pair of ski; so please design on both skis. Also, the key element is that this is for age 8 and under, so please keep it kids friendly.
For those who need some more direction, I inserted some designs from other company that we think the concepts are. Your final design should be something like the attached ski graphic that was designed for us here at 99designs. I'm also attaching some graphics that we found on the web to give you folks an idea of what patterns that work.
I'd like to mention again that for this design our target market is age 8 and under. And parents are the main buyers for the product. It has to be kids friendly and parent approval.
Branding: The brand will be “SOLA”. Please feel free to use it as part of graphic or create a logo and add to the design.
Fonts: Please outline any fonts if used in the design.
Colors: Don't limit your colors to the samples we've shown. Feel free to choose colors that will fit your design.
Template: Please use the template that we've attached and make sure it’s a design for both skis (a pair). Please have your design extend to a 27.5” X 3.5” outline (each ski). Also, since it will be a binding on top of each ski (8.5” long), the main focus of your artwork should avoid that area. On the other hand, please have the theme on top (12.5” from top) or bottom (6” from the bottom).
If you decide to use stock images for your design, please make sure to have the proper licensing. (enhanced license)
If you plan to use photos, please make sure they're the proper size (300 DPI). The ski is 27.5”x3.5” each in size.
In addition, if we leave positive feedback on your designs please leave your previous submissions as well. Sometimes we'll prefer your original work over the changes we asked you to make. We're aiming for one graphic but like in our previous contests, we might choose two.
