We would like an icon based on a fabric swatch. The swatch is attached to a card (see photos). The icon will be used for social media and industry websites so it should fit aesthetically within a square space and look professional whether small or large.
The swatch card must have a hole on the top left side (see photos of real swatch) and we prefer the zig-zag edges around the fabric. Please include the name of our company as seen in the photos.
We are narrowing down to 2 different styles - design one or both versions.
1. A flat design logo/icon based off of the swatch. This would be akin to the way Apple uses their icon logo (see photos - the simplicity of the Apple logo). It should be unique and not look like a generic swatch that could represent just any fabric company. Think sporty, stylish, high-tech (but minimalist with the required elements.) Don't limit yourself to a straight-forward "swatch on a card" with no flair.
2. A swatch that has a hand-drawn, sketched, or painted/watercolor look. This should not look like a stock filter in Photoshop. Think of fashion, artistic -as if Karl Lagerfeld of Chanel was sketching a new dress for a Paris premiere. Color and texture is welcome or experiment with a true sketch with no color. Your choice, just include the basic elements.
