ellen.mccaleb got their new merchandise by running a design contest:
Design cool growth charts for Boys - trucks, tractors, animals and more!
Check out ellen.mccaleb's Merchandise contest…
Our target audience is moms, dads and grandparents. Mostly parents though. While some of our designs are bought to be hung in a central location in the home, many are hung in a child's room. The idea is to design something that can grow with the child. Something that is not too childish. While you may think kids like colorful and busy things, it is the parents that select these. I recently commissioned some absolutely beautiful designs...think unicorns, fairies, etc. But they have not sold very well at all. I think they are too colorful. I think my clients like to have a sense of order in their lives. Which means they like clean.
What's your vision?
I'm looking for growth chart designs that will sell. Please visit us online at www.growthchartart.com We print exclusively on Baltic Birch plywood. The cream of this becomes your white in your designs. Design one or take on several of these.... 1) A growth chart that evokes the wonder of exploration and travel. Perhaps "Oh the Places You'll Go!" written somewhere on it. Perhaps a compass ...but definitely part of a map. Feel free to consult the free downloadable image directory of The Library of Congress for cool map portions. This design should be unisex. 2) Designs for boys: We need cool and classic designs for boys. Think block print style, or something that elevates our designs. I'm looking for: 1) trucks/work vehicles, 2) tools (wrenches, hammers, etc), 3) vehicles and 4) definitely farm equipment (tractors, etc.). 3) Patriotic designs: something for patriotic families (I think it involves a flag), but can't be "cheesy." 4) Chart that uses animal tracks - animal track identification. We'd have to have different versions: Northeast, Southeast, Southwest and Pacific. COLORS: people are loving neutrals these days. I suggested block prints because they would look really nice printed on our Baltic Birch plywood. Gray is in huge demand. SIZES: We offer two sizes of growth charts. 1) our most popular size is 58" tall by 5.75" wide. Perhaps it's the price that makes this one so popular. 2) 58" tall by 8.25" wide. Once I see sketches, I'll give input on size. Any ruler/numbering provided as part of the design must be accurate.
