REVISION: After seeing the first entries and brainstorming with my wife (the shop owner), we came up with a very specific idea. The idea is to create a logo with the same setup as this Spunky Pineapple logo - https://www.etsy.com/shop/SpunkyPineappleCo .
This will be used as the avatar for an Etsy shop (500 x 500 pixels). Don't use more than 3 or 4 colors so it's easy to put on other merchandise, brochures, business cards, etc... At the top of the circle in big bold contemporary font of one of the desired colors (almost like rubber stamp lettering) put COOL MOM SQUAD. In the drawing I put the words at the top of the circle with a couple of stars to the right of the word SQUAD.
On the bottom of the circle curved up it should have 3 words in smaller font. These 3 words will describe most of the shirts: SARCASTIC - SWEET - SHAMELESS. The words should be separated by small section of the circle. See the attached rough sketch for the placement of the the text and graphic elements.
In the middle of the circle should be a "cool mom" with her arms folded and a glass of red wine in the right hand. Her facial expression should be of a smirk (half smile) with eyes rolling...which is how my wife looks most of the time when the kids start on their drama. Google Kathy Womack "Women & Wine" series of paintings to get an idea of the type of mom face to put on the logo.
Here is our Etsy shop to get an idea of the type of shirts we sell.
More detail on the women. She should have black hair, wear hoop earrings, and a regular (NOT pearl) necklace hanging at 2 different levels (see the rough sketch for an idea of placement and use something similar to this necklace - https://www.etsy.com/listing/469340…ed-silver). She should be wearing dark TEE SHIRT..could be dark purple to match the desired colors.
Again, the theme of our shop is sarcastic, shameless...and sometimes sweet (band moms, cheer moms, funny sarcastic shirts, and a few with some cuss words). :)
This could be the start of future design work as we will also need help with designing banners for social media - Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
