    Designers: Please make sure that there are at least three layers to the file as listed in the original brief: background color, Rosie and baby, and words above them. We need to be able to choose which of those to include when we use the file for various purposes. Thanks!

    I really enjoy how #8 and #9 convey breastfeeding without making me feel like the mom is overly exposed. The drawings aren't similar enough to Rosie to evoke what I want for my header, but they are great in other ways.

    Love how #6 has modernized the mom. All designers, please take note, though, in the images I attached to the brief, how it looks when moms breastfeed with a shirt on. The breast exposure is very subtle and does not include the breast not in use. (See previous note on this, too.)

    Looking at #2, my business partner and I are not sure about the angle of Rosie's head. On one hand, we really like the nurturing angles of her body around the baby's; on the other hand, the very upright posture and angle of her head in the original are part of what evoke the sense of determination. Looking forward to seeing where this goes.

    Thanks for getting us started, r4pro, with #1. I like how you've stuck with the original but worked at making it your own. Thanks for making the baby gender-neutral and for having it grasping her breast, as babies often do. I'm not sure that Rosie can have her fist pump in the breastfeeding image (someone may prove me wrong), because it looks a bit like she's going to punch the baby or like she's saying 'f-- you' to the camera. I feel like her expression could use a bit of work toward illustrating determination, but I may be conflating her hand gesture with her face. (In the original, one of her eyebrows is raised a good bit more than the other, which helps, I think.) It's pretty important to note in the 'helpful images' I posted in the original brief how moms' breasts look when they're breastfeeding with a shirt on. Only one breast would be at all exposed. The other would be covered by a shirt as well as a nursing bra. (Nursing bras let one breast or piece of breast be exposed at a time.) These breasts are also a bit . . . silicone? . . . for a breastfeeding mom. Looking forward to seeing your next iteration.
