Wonderful work by Meadow! She managed to deliver more than "just a logo" - but rather a whole brand identity - and capture the essence of the brand with her very simple but very clean design. In addition she was very responsive to my changes and sought to deliver the work above and beyond of what was asked from her. Would highly recommend her for any design work.
How Real Mocha started their stationery journey
Do You Have a Modern Sensibility and a Unique Style? If so, we'd love it if you entered Real Mocha's Birth Announcements Design Contest! 1st Prize Winner: $200 (guaranteed), 2nd Prize Winner: $100, Unlimited Runner Up Prizes for Superior Designs: $50. 2nd Prizes and Runner Up prizes will be awarded if there are multiple superior designs. We are a printing company looking to create some templates for our users. For birth announcements, we are looking for designs that appeal to modern women who have a sophisticated and fun-loving aesthetic. Brand associations might be Kate Spade or Jonathan Alder. Here are samples from our current catalogue: http://realmocha.com/cardsamples.png
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
Please create a pair of themed birth announcements (1 girl, 1 boy) that are complementary, yet still unique. For example, using the same design with different colors would NOT work, but creating a different color palette along with changing graphics could work. You may view our moodboard here: http://realmocha.com/design/moodboard.pdf login: modern (case sensitive) password: greatdesign (case sensitive) You may incorporate a photo if you would like. If using a photo, try to think outside the box (both literally and figuratively speaking) and use creative solutions. As for the photographs in your design, we suggest that you browse http://fotolia.com for a stock photo.
COLOR: Simple, harmonious and in interesting combinations. Please do not use metallic or fluorescent colors. We use CMYK. We use 2 spot colors, 369U and 1545U. Text prints especially well in C, M, Y, K and one of the spots but you are free to use other colors.
IP: We encourage you to create vector graphics that complement your design but you must create these from scratch. Simpler graphics are generally better.
SIZE: 5.99" x 4.3125" (horizontal or vertical) flat card.
