I am working on a travel book where I would like to capture all of the countries in Europe including the most interesting places to travel to, and publish it as a list of challenges for travelers.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I am looking for colorful illustrations for the interior of my travel book. I would like to get illustrations based on pictures I choose. Every country in the book should have an illustration with the description of a sight in the right bottom corner and a flag of the country that matches the illustration. There will be also some additional illustrations for special destinations. Overall, I am looking for 46 photo-based illustrations, but they don't need to have all the details exact the same as on the pictures. I have attached four examples of pictures I would like to get illustrated and flags that should match to the illustration and look good on the page. It means the flag should match the style of the illustration. For the contest, I propose that the designers provide an illustration of at least one picture they choose including a matching flag (as per the attached pdf and photographs).
I am not necessarily looking for handwritten illustrations, even if I like them a lot. I am looking for colorful illustrations that look very real, energetic and positive. I appreciate all ideas or suggestions that make the pictures look good. I also prefer light colors for the illustrations. I would like to find a reliable designer (or designers) who is passionate about travelling and would be interested in long-term cooperation as well.
