CerriesM got their new illustration or graphics by running a design contest:
A fresh + fun cover illustration for our (famous!) premium notebooks
Check out CerriesM's Illustration or graphics contest…
We're a UK-based brand that creates premium notebooks and planners. We're passionate about helping people improve their mental health through the practice of journaling, and putting pen to paper. Our target audience is unisex (although we have a demographic of mostly women), aged 20-65. Many of our customers love bullet journaling, and/or creative journaling. They typically use our notebooks as planners, keeping a track of activities and events that matter to them in their life (hence the reason our current doodles reflect different activities that relate to everyday life).
What's your vision?
Ahead of launching our new Core Range for 2021, we are looking for a fresh new look for our 'Iconic' range of premium journals. Our Iconic range features a selection of doodles (as opposed to our 'Pro' range, which is plain). We are looking for an updated design for our Iconic covers, which will be debossed into our vegan leather. We're thinking of an update to the doodles - or something completely different! (We're totally open-minded - although it would have to be something special (and aligned with our values) for us to give up our precious doodles that our customers know and love :)). The most important things to remember are: 1) The design will feature on the front and back cover, and ideally isn't a repeat (if it's the doodles, we'd like different doodles front and back). 2) The design will need to be a line-drawing (vector), so that it can be effectively debossed. 3) This is the FUN notebook in our range. It aims to have a creative, uplifting and inspiring feel. 4) You can either update the doodle concept, or submit something completely new. If exploring the doodle concept, subjects for doodles must be related to everyday life (such as hobbies, food, health etc). If you're exploring ideas outside of the doodles, please know that we're open-minded, but it would need to be something special for us to move away from our beloved doodles. 5) Ideally, we're looking for something unique and eye-catching. 6) Our journals are marketed to both men and women (although it's usually women that choose the Iconic, with men opting for our plain Pro cover). 7) The cover will need to feature our logo - either on the front or back cover, or the spine.
This is a really fun project for someone to get their creative juices flowing! The STM Iconic notebook has a long history, and is a fan favourite (no pressure! ;)) - so if your design is chosen, you'll have contributed to the Iconic story as it unfolds in 2021. Outside of the pointers already given, we'd LOVE to see some originality and boldness! We're completely open to all suggestions. (One final thing to mention is that this could also lead to additional work in the future). Good luck!
