What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
we want a design for a small label to put on the shoulder of our bottle that says "Handcrafted in Iowa" or "Made in Iowa" or " A Product of Iowa" or something similar. I would like the sticker to be in the shape of Iowa also. These are just suggestions. I want you to use your imagination and do what you do best. I had some ideas below, but you may come up with something better. The label would be small probably no wider than 3/4 of an inch, and a 1/2 inch tall, maybe a little bigger. I have also attached a copy of our bottle so that you can look at the shape of the bottle and the design of the label to incorporate into your design. I want something great that works with the bottle. The idea that i gave below, may not work as the colors maybe off from the colors of the label. I need something to go with our label that the customer will look at know that it is made in iowa.
I had an idea of taking the attached three designs and combine them into one. The three state universities in Iowa all share the color gold. The other colors are Red (Iowa State), Purple (University of Northern Iowa) and Black (University of Iowa). I thought the Gold could be used to outline the state and for the writing and the background of the state could be red, purple and black. See attached. The red on the CYCLONE photo is the color i would want, not the red on NATIVE. Im not sure the colors will work with our label.
Perhaps we could incorporate a map background of the state of iowa, similar to the map background of our label and then use similar fonts to say "Handcrafted in Iowa" or "Made in Iowa" etc. I think that idea may be better than the first.
