What's your vision?
I’m a metal artist and need to have a nameplate designed. So, you are designing something that will be turned into an etched metal name plate. Most of these will be riveted to the front of flat metal wall art, similar to how a painter would sign a painting, so accommodate for two 1/8” diameter rivet holes. Also, in keeping with the fact that these will be attached to the art as a signature/date, the name plate should not be too flamboyant such that it draws attention away from the art. I also make objects, such as fountains, tables, etc, and these could accommodate a nameplate that is more eye catching. Maybe I will have two different name plates: a simple one for flat wall art, and a more complicated version for objects? So, feel free to design the pair, or design for one or the other application. Extra points for 1 name plate design that will work for both applications. An example of a beautiful modern design for objects is by the genius at weld house. see: https://www.flickr.com/photos/weldhouse/17198685499/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/weldhouse/14900763855/ I love everything about that weldhouse name plate, but I think it is too much for the front of a flat wall art piece. I really like the name plates that are found on old machines. here are some examples for inspiration: https://goldcountry.craigslist.org/tls/5246835411.html https://jeffpeachey.files.wordpress.com/2012/12/paper-box.jpg http://users.zoominternet.net/~pcgray/Myrick/myricklo.gif http://i625.photobucket.com/albums/tt333/rbehner/shop%20pics/Wmswlsn.jpg http://www.ipdb.org/glossary/electropak2.jpg http://ibm-1401.info/513MotorGeneratorNamePlate-.jpg https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/74/Emblem_Wolseley-Siddeley_V_S_%26_M_copy.png https://img0.etsystatic.com/068/0/6533658/il_214x170.799063822_qehq.jpg http://www.victor-victrola.com/VE%20PLATE.jpg My name plate MUST have the following: 1 ) my name: “R.G. Boire” This can be in whatever font/wordart style that you think looks cool and resonates with modern machine age. 2) The year - this should be in a different font than my name - something that looks almost like a serial number. This will be the date that I made the piece, so for your design use: “2015” but, this needs to be easy to change as I will be having this same name plate with all the upcoming years. (remember, this name plate is performing the function of a painter signing and dating his or her work.) Additionally, you are free to experiment with: A) adding any image/embellishment(s) of your choice. B) additional words such as: “original metal work” You can get an idea of some of my work, here: www.rgboire.com. Thanks for your creative efforts! -= RG Boire
