We are a publishing company located in Northern Michigan. In addition to coloring books, we also create whimsical vinyl stickers.
What's your vision?
I am looking for a whimsical vinyl sticker design that captures the heart of the town I live in...with a bit of humor added in. Traverse City, MI is known for its pristine beaches and over the years, locals have adopted the mantra that "a view of the bay is part of the pay." The bay they're referring to is Grand Traverse Bay; which is 32 miles long, 10 miles wide, and up to 620 feet deep in spots. (The thought behind the saying is that wages here are low because employers figure getting to look at the bay is essentially part of your pay.) Please feel free to message me if you have questions about that. Playing off this saying, I would like to combine it with another known phrase "living paycheck to paycheck." The play I would like to make is to have a sticker that says "Traverse City: Living bay check to bay check. (There's also some flexibility to this. For example if you want to say Traverse City Life: Living bay check or baycheck" or "I'm just passing the time in Traverse City living bay check to bay check." (the bay check to bay check and having Traverse City in there are the most important elements.) As far as imagery, a beach scene is probably the most obvious, but I definitely want this to be humorous and cartoon (and not necessarily an actual picture/photo of the bay). I am not opposed to caricatures, cartoons, stick people type figures, or even a vintage looking design. The most important thing is that it conveys the humor intended with the message. It can be square, rectangular, circle...I'm completely open to your design/interpretation and whatever shape you feel inspired to use. Size wise, I wouldn't want it to be smaller than 4" (if you were using a square design, I'd say something in the 4" x 4" range.)
You can view pictures of Grand Traverse Bay here: https://www.google.com/search?q=grand+traverse+bay&tbm=isch&chips=q:grand+traverse+bay,g_1:traverse+city:THVGQD_HhAI%3D&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwj_hcmwnfvqAhVb9qwKHSlaCnIQ4lYoAHoECAEQFQ&biw=1531&bih=846. (these images are obviously just for inspiration and to give you a feel for the area.) I absolutely do NOT want any stock images. The designs / art need to be original. I want the design to be one-of-a-kind so I will have to decline any designs that use stock art/photos.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Sticker starts at $189.
Full copyright with production-ready files for digital and/or print.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their sticker.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
khains collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected 2 winners!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
