Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Jet ski, pontoon boat, kayak, and paddleboard rentals. We also have a Jet Blade, water propulsion boots, that is the main attraction for both show and to rent. We are right on the Gulf Coast on Okaloosa Island in Florida. Our target is anyone from young to old but typically we see either families on vacation or groups of 20 - 40-year-old friends getting together for a day of fun.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I am looking for a design that will go on the back of a shirt. We are looking for both a male and female design. So, any design created will have the male silhouette on the male t-shirt and the female silhouette on the female shirt, two separate shirts, two separate but 'identical' designs.
I want a splash silhouette of a Jetblade rider, possibly in a backflip or in a twist, on the back of a t-shirt. I say splash but I am not specifically looking for tons of water around the silhouette. But if that's what looks best then go for it. Water coming from the boots and the hose in loops/twists will add some flare. If you google Jet Blade, Flyboard, or Ben Merrell(my business partner) you will find a ton of photos/videos that will inspire you as well as help you make sense of what is the Jetblade. Also, not sure how it would look but if the shape of the state of Florida or the word Florida were somehow incorporated it may give some more depth to play with. Or because of our location on Okaloosa Island, the island name would play really well. A little splash color to make it pop would be great! But not too much to keep cost down when printing.
The design is for the Jetblade side of the business. I have other designs that incorporate everything else we rent out.
