One of the designers who made it happen

Winner - :: scott ::
Working with ::scott:: was a great experience. I was concerned, never having sourced a design through a website, about what level of quality I would get. I had provided a fleshed-out brief and a lot of visual imagery, and didn’t want anything cookie-cutter or facile. I am working on a concept that is targeting an un-obvious demographic within a sector burdened by historical assumptions, and so the usual stereotypes wouldn’t work. It was clear that ::scott:: had read/interpreted the information and distilled/edited a wide range of inspirations into a clear design. It was a relief when I saw his initial submission early among the others, because he clearly “got it,” and had the skill to propose a design that would be flexible enough to hold up on various platforms/media and still retain an essential integrity to be recognizable as one brand. As we worked together, he was responsive to my requests, and it was a collaborative process. He had opinions about his choices for the various elements and justifications for those opinions, but was still open to trying and adopting changes. ::scott::’s entries led the pack the entire competition, and I am grateful to have found a designer of his caliber. Clearly he deserves his Platinum rating on this site.

How MozzyDox started their t-shirt journey

Company name

Lobster Place

Overview

We're a popular seafood shop in New York City run by a couple fishmongers who know how to have fun. We're looking for a t-shirt design that we'd be proud to wear and sell to our customers. Something cool that represents us. Nothing cartoon-y.

Thanks for considering this contest! We're very excited to work with you. Below are the elements that are most important to us for this Lobster Place t-shirt design.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

A t-shirt for all the ages, but mostly for adults. Something universal that would appeal to all. But it has to have that cool, vintage old school factor. Like some of the tees here: http://dinernyc.com/tees/

Image should be appealing for Men. Women. Kids.

Requirements

OVERALL FEEL: A cool, vintage, old-school, HAND DRAWN looking design kinda like http://tinyurl.com/2ex2uht or http://tinyurl.com/3xt476d

2 Total Elements for the T-shirt:
- Company name: Lobster Place
- Image: (1) image to blend with the company name

Placement: FRONT of t-shirt
Size: Logo should be placed along the chest area of the t-shirt only. We DO NOT want it to cover the whole front of the t-shirt.

Design Color: Red, Navy, All White, or Black Please limit entire logo to 1-2 colors, 1 preferred
T-shirt Color: We will be placing this design on red, navy blue, gray and light blue tshirts. Therefore, logo color should compliment.
