Entertainment & The Arts
We are a boutique private music lesson company in Los Angeles, CA. Our customers are people of all ages and styles.
What's your vision?
We'd like something fun or humorous that relates to music, and/or something that incorporates our teacher photos, or a neat drawing, etc. . . For instance, last year we had a mean looking teacher brandishing a ruler, with the caption "Aren't you glad our teachers are nice?" The year before we had caricatures of our teachers. We'll print them at vistaprint.com as 4x8 cards (just front and back), so please adhere to the vistaprint design specs. I included some images: Our logo, and photos of our teachers. Feel free to use them (or not). Our website is: http://www.redpelicanmusic.com Google "Red Pelican Music" and you'll get a good idea of our style: fun, but top quality. For text, something simple ie. "Happy holidays from your friends at Red Pelican Music" Also, feel free to use any great music quotes. For instance: “Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” - Plato “Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances. ” - Maya Angelou Also, for humor, here's a great Far Side example: http://s266.beta.photobucket.com/user/albumforjames/media/Far%20Side/music_teacher.jpg.html ***If anyone is in need of an idea -- I'd love to have someone try making a card that looks like a classic blue note album cover! PS. I tend to like a degree of minimalism. A little more space.
We've done two successful 99designs contests in the past and are looking forward to this one! We are very good about giving quick feedback, especially since time is of the essence. For detailed sizing/format specs, please see this vistaprint link: http://www.vistaprint.com/vp/ns/propath/UploadResources.aspx?selectedTab=0%3Fpfid%3D243&pf_id=285&xnav=easypath-upload-image&pfid=285#DocumentSize The cards are 4x8 (front and back) PS. If using the teacher pictures, please use all of them in one way or another -- don't want to leave any one out. Otherwise, please don't the teacher pictures at all. Definitely use our logo somewhere. *Since this is a two-sided card, please put a litte marker, so that people know to turn the card over! For the final delivery, in addition for the format for the holiday card print, we'd like the graphic elements separated into a few web-friendly pieces (to incorporate into a holiday email).
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Card or invitation starts at $199.
Full copyright with production-ready files for digital and/or print.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their card or invitation.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
redpelicanmusic collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
