We are a not-for-profit dance crew hosting our annual dance recital. The recital attracts family and friends of the dancers, as well as the broader dance community in Ottawa, Ontario.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
This year, our dance recital event is called "Mischief Managed: The Fifth and Final KKD Showcase." Our opening number is "magical themed" this year, and it is intended as a fun homage to Harry Potter (although we will be careful to avoid using the words "Harry Potter" or any of the Hogwarts house names).
We will require:
1) A crest designed for our event that is similar to the original Hogwarts one, but nonetheless uniquely different. https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon…SY450_.jpg Please use the same colours and animals (snake, lion, and badger, as well as the bird -- but please make it look like a raven instead of an eagle). Please of course remove the "H" from the centre; you can replace it with a "K" if you wish. This crest will appear on our poster and other publicity material. (Our event coordinators are going to make us a poster, but they require an image first -- that's what I need a graphic designer to create.)
2) 4 smaller crests featuring the animals alone, similar to what you see here: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.co…af4f67.jpg. Please however change the original house names to simply say "ravens," "snakes," "lions," and "badgers" in order to keep our marketing generic. Each dancer has commemorative photos taken of them, and one of these crests will appear on each of the dancer's photos. (For example, I am a lion, so my photo will have the lions crest appearing on my photo.) Please also send one version of each house crest that is modified to say "prefect" on it. We have 4 prefects (one from each house), and the prefects will have this special crest appear on their photos.
I forgot to add something very important in my instructions! The banner should say "SALTARE OMNIBUS PLACET" (which is our motto, "dance is for everyone," translated into Latin. Sorry for not making this clear before!
