The brief is to design 10 characters from real living animals (see photos attached) that will feature on children (1-6 years old) clothing & accessories (blankets, bags and cushions).
The drawings are to be SIMPLE, solid shapes. They will be easy to cut out of material and stitch onto the clothes or accessories - this is why 10. These are NOT detailed illustrations.
The initial designs must be the below 3 animals (& in the photos) to allow us to select a winner. The second phase will be to design the remaining 7 animals and refine the first 3.
Our feeling is, once the style for the first three is finalised it should be easier to create the final characters.
The characters are all based on living animals that are cared for and belong to Wendy - there are attached photos.
THE INITIAL 3 ANIMALS:
• Rabbit (rabbit.jpg)
• Dog (poppy 1/2/3.jpg)
• Chicken (chicken 1/2.jpg).
THE REMAINING 7 ANIMALS (pictures recently added on 8 June):
• Running Duck
• Shetland Pony
• We will require full body characters, however it must be easy to use the animal head on future items if required.
• We will require artwork of the full body image and heads that can be used in high resolution and the website.
Solid simple shapes must be used that will be easy to cut out of material and stitch onto the clothes or accessories
Photos of a blanket, t-shirt and bag produced by our manufacturer are attached, HOWEVER: we want our own distinctive style to the characters. These are to give you an idea of the level of detail.
The animal features (eyes, mouths, tongues, feet etc) must also be easy to reproduce.
The character clothing will be created like a jigsaw puzzle.
The animals must be full frontal or side on views (No 3D images or angled views please.)
We want to form a long-term relationship with a designer and expand the range later on and produce other items.
