Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Our audience is the cool cat lovers. They also love hipster culture. They like humor. They like street art, barber shop fonts and bright colors. We will be putting on enamel pins, mugs, hats, shirts, etc.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We need an illustration designed of Smokey Mezcal, our cat, that will be the icon of this company. We are attempting to sell everything from pins, stitched embroidery, shirts, hats, mostly for charity. We want it to be a visual brand that is an interesting take on Smokey's symmetric face. We want someone who doesn't necessary have pets to see a product and think it is just funky enough to wear. Could have some adult humor later on. We love the colors light blue, grey and white, but want to see what you can imagine. Would be great to have his name Smokey Mezcal somewhere in the design as part of it. Should be accurate enough to recognize Smokey. His face marks/pattern should match as well. It should not just look like a Radom gray cat. This could also just be his face with his name. Unless you think of something that would look great with the rest of his body. We don't want him looking like a straight up cartoon either. Photorealitic but looked like it was hand drawn will probably be best. We want Smokey to have his face with his patterns and not look like Felix the Cat type cartoon. Tracing over one of the heads we have attached and adding some illustration flare would be a good start.
My apologies everyone, it comes to my attention that I may have been unclear.
Below I have attached the type of illustration of JUST Smokeys head we would want. I also attatched some Enamel Pins that we plan on putting his head on art similar to what was in our thoughts.
Needs to have Smokeys Face and colors. He's gray and also sometimes light brown, hence the name Smokey Mezcal. The font should be that old school bubbly type of font, attached some reference below. We also like the Color and shading of the video game CupHead, not the actual character design.
