This project involved a challenging consumer packaging concept. The goal was to create something virtually indistinguishable from a 19th century elixir label, with authentic typography and an alluring color story. In our experience, this level of design tends to be a tall order, even for large design firms.
This was a Gold level contest and 4 designers submitted concepts. Of these, Calavera was the only designer who immediately grasped our vision, nailing the basic idea on the first try. Calavera was also quick to submit numerous minor revisions at our request, each an improvement over the last.
We couldn't be happier with the final result. It has been a pleasure working with this consummate professional. We look forward to future projects with 99designs and to working with Calavera and other talented designers.
Great job! A wonderful hand-drawn original design that will look great on our packaging and advertising!
Understood the requirements and delivered what we were looking for in a short period of time. Thank you.

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We're looking for a logo/sequence for our production company to use in front of our films. Easiest example is the Amblin Entertainment logo you see in front of every Steven Spielberg film. Or the Dreamworks Logo (though not nearly as elaborate).
The name of the company is Open Fire Films. We'd like to take it one of 2 directions. The first is simply a black screen, we'd hear three gunshots that would reveal separately with each one. *Gunshot* Open *Gunshot* Fire *Gunshot* Films. The color of the font could be fire red/orange or blue. Open to either or.
The other direction for the logo would simply be a blue fire forming in the middle of the screen and "Open Fire Films" would appear. There would need to be a fire sound effect added, but, that's something that we could possibly add ourselves.
I hope the descriptions above are specific enough. The key is to have something effective, memorable, but understated/not overblown. Simplicity is key.
We're a start-up film production company. Our first feature is just about done. We primarily make thrillers of any genre. Our first feature, Terminal Legacy, is a sci-fi thriller. http://www.terminallegacythemovie.com.
