I couldn't imagine a better experience. I had no idea what we really wanted our logo to look like and through feedback, reviews and revisions we received the perfect logo.
How codyclarkedi started their t-shirt journey
What do you have in mind for the style and theme of the t-shirt?
We are looking for a new Tshirt design for our apparel company. We would like the company name, "Every Day Issue", to be incorporated whether in full name or initials, E.D.I. or EDI, along with or without our tagline, Apparel Bound in Service, depending on the designers vision. Our primary logo can be used or modified to better fit the design but it is not necessary either. The goal would be to produce a design that our First Responders and supporters would like to wear out and about to show their support for other First Responders and the company mission. See other section for additional direction.
Currently there is an over abundance of hokey First Responder designs that weigh too heavily on cartoonish design such as Police K-9 wearing uniforms or symbolic designs such as the "Thin Blue/Red or White Line" type designs. We would like to be more subdued in our designs where it is not quite as in your face that the person wearing the apparel could be a Police Officer/Firefighter/EMT. Traditional imagery such as the badge or maltese cross or the star of life could be incorporated into the design but it would need to be less prominent/disguised or not used at all. Ideally our company and design would use our name and tag line as common identifiers which signify all First Responders as opposed to the traditional imagery. It would also be best if the design would work for all of our target market which would be Police, Firefighters, EMT and their supporters who may or may not be First Responders themselves as opposed to signaling one branch out over another. We like hand drawn, vintage, looking designs but really what we need is something that generally everyone can get behind and support. Creative fonts, sizing and placement of the company name/tag line are also encouraged and our company colors are identical to the USA Flag but any colors can be used as well. Final designs need to be in all of the typical formats so that they can be used for commercial screen printing and website display but in particular a vector format will be needed. I will attach our logo in black and white as well as in color. Also, I will attach a shirt that we have already had designed. As some designs come in we will provide additional direction.
****we need a design that is more than just our name and tag line straight down the shirt, as we already have that...feel free to be creative****
