We've just recently got a logo design from 99designs, now we need a signage for a playground, it will be installed at the entrance or top of the playground, I have attached a 3-D rendering of the playground with a simple example of the sign, for you to get the idea.
Requirements and notes:
1) The sign should be eye-catching and creative;
2) There are two phrases in Chinese that must be integrated in the sign, in English they mean: "playground developed in the USA", and "manufactured by xxxx company". I have explained the phrases on the jpg file. You can decide where to place them and decide the size of the text, but the first phrase must be larger and more emphasized than the second phrase. In your design you need to use the original Chinese phrases, you can find these text from the ai file I uploaded.
3) We'd like the sign to carry some design elements that link to the US, such as the stars and red/blue color combinations. We'd also like the design to have some cool elements such as the splash and brush in the images I uploaded. But these are just examples, I don't really want something so straightforward.
4) The style and color scheme of the sign must go well with the playground.
5) I've also uploaded a sign I like, the final sign we will make is a 3-D sign like the it, with the characters extruding out from the board, so your design must be suitable for making such a 3-D sign. It will be very helpful if you can show the design as a 3-D sign.
6) Because the sign will be installed on the playground structure, it must be an integral sign, not separate parts that have to be mounted on a wall. See the attached "correct and not correct.png" for what I mean.
