Vanessa was fantastic to work with. Not only did I love her work, i found her to be very responsive, accommodating, and professional.
Great work! I'm very pleased with the design I got. Designer was responsive during the contest and contributed designs that all met the specifications in the design brief.

What industry do you think your business is most related to?
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We're a retail outfit offering merchandise such as t-shirts, canvas prints, pillow covers and jewelry in several customer niches including cat lovers. We sell primarily to customers in the USA and 90% of our cat lovers are women. Our designs are themed to sell in the USA and if others worldwide want to buy them, that's fine as well.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We need a Christmas and cats themed design that we can use for print-on-demand canvas and pillow covers. We want a vintage/rustic illustrated design that includes the text "Kitty Kisses & Holiday Wishes" along with complementary Christmas holiday style kitty imagery. We're definitely looking more for a vintage/country look vs. a kiddie cartoon look. Text and imagery, including color, should be congruent. Text with a simple cat clip art or holly tacked around it is NOT acceptable to us.
We want something adult women who are cat lovers will know they *must* have as soon as they see it and would proudly display in their homes. 90% of our audience for this stuff is American women.
There could be a cat with Santa hat and/or presents, holly in the design, snowflakes in the design, etc. We're not set on a specific layout or graphic image, except that we are set on cats/country/Christmas. See "Other" section for more information.
For pillow covers, we need a square image 3000x3000 pixels at 300dpi. For canvas, we'd like to be able to print at different sizes including up to 36in x 36in if someone wants it that big. Also, because this is for print-on-demand bear in mind there is a border zone that may be cut off from the pillow or wrapped around a wood frame for canvas prints. For this reason, no critical design elements that would look bad if cut off (like a cat's ears or head) should be too close to the border.
A store that sells related country themed home decor items is CountryDoor.com McNeil Studio style holiday art is great, too, and fits our desired "country" look.
