We will be using the Zazzle Classic Mug template, which you can see here: https://www.zazzle.com/custom_value…6229703585
- Design for the Classic Mug and similar styles: neither the frosted glass mug, the stein, nor the travel mug.
- Your design should work for both the 11oz and the 15oz sizes.
- Note that the print zone stops near the mug handle, and the mug underneath is white. Please take that into consideration. You can upload your design to Zazzle to see it rendered on a mug. If your design includes a dark background, that's fine, but please include an alternative that fades to white on the left & right edges. An abrupt transition on the top & bottom is fine.
- The haiku verse and the Twitter handle @17morae should be fully visible when the cup is in either hand. In other words: put it on both sides of the cup.
- No upper-case or punctuation in the verse, and please do not change the line structure. Use it exactly as it appears in the brief: lower case and new lines only.
- I am looking for expressive imagery, so please no pure-typography designs.
- I prefer free fonts and images to licensed stock. Original artwork is best of all!!
- If you have a great idea that does not QUITE fit your chosen haiku, show me. Often we can tweak the verse to meet the design.
