Meadow was great! She really took all my words to heart. She stuck with it through all the revisions and very much captured what I was looking for!
How Real Mocha started their stationery journey
Do You Have a Modern Sensibility and a Unique Style? If so, we'd love it if you entered Real Mocha's Birth Announcements Design Contest! 1st Prize Winner: $200 (guaranteed), 2nd Prize Winner: $100, Unlimited Runner Up Prizes for Superior Designs: $50. 2nd Prizes and Runner Up prizes will be awarded if there are multiple superior designs. We are a printing company looking to create some templates for our users. For birth announcements, we are looking for designs that appeal to modern women who have a sophisticated and fun-loving aesthetic. Brand associations might be Kate Spade or Jonathan Alder. Here are samples from our current catalogue: http://realmocha.com/cardsamples.png
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
Please create a pair of themed birth announcements (1 girl, 1 boy) that are complementary, yet still unique. For example, using the same design with different colors would NOT work, but creating a different color palette along with changing graphics could work. You may view our moodboard here: http://realmocha.com/design/moodboard.pdf login: modern (case sensitive) password: greatdesign (case sensitive) You may incorporate a photo if you would like. If using a photo, try to think outside the box (both literally and figuratively speaking) and use creative solutions. As for the photographs in your design, we suggest that you browse http://fotolia.com for a stock photo.
COLOR: Simple, harmonious and in interesting combinations. Please do not use metallic or fluorescent colors. We use CMYK. We use 2 spot colors, 369U and 1545U. Text prints especially well in C, M, Y, K and one of the spots but you are free to use other colors.
IP: We encourage you to create vector graphics that complement your design but you must create these from scratch. Simpler graphics are generally better.
SIZE: 5.99" x 4.3125" (horizontal or vertical) flat card.
We accept only original artwork to respect the copyright of artists and designers. Please do NOT use any royalty free graphics, even if you have a license to them. Please don't use anything for which you don't own 100% of the copyright.
