Dear illustrators and designers,
Each coffee has it's own identity and needs a"face". An illustration should represent the country of origin, express luxury and be recognizable for our customers. Must display luxuriousness. Furthermore each illustration should have it's own character but on the other hand be part of a series of coffee. May be a sketch/portrait of local people's face / coffee farmer's face but remember that we can only print in two colours (please use black/white as a starting point). The people should be associated with the country of origin. So clearly recognizable with the country of origin.
Think of, for example, Indonesian people with an Indonesian hat. Or people from Africa with long earrings. Or a typical face from Guatemala. All faces must have a clear identity which is connected to the country of origin but as said earlier are part of a series as well so we should be able to put all the different packagings next to each other and there should be consistency in style.
The coffee is offered in wooden barrels on which the illustration will be printed. (around 10 cm. x 10 cm.) The print is made with a mould so the illustration can only be printed in two colours, thus no lighter or darker colours. (e.g. black white, or black and another colour).
We are looking for a skilled and experienced illustrator/ designer who can think along and help us out. We are in need of 6, not very complex illustrations in total.
So please provide us with 6 different face expressions from people of the following countries:
Costa Rica, Guatemala, Indonesia, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Kenya.
As said we are planning on adding countries every month so if we are satisfied with your designs this will mean we will hire you to draw faces for other origins/countries as well in the near future.
