    Excellent Result. Would definitely recommend

    Contest Brief:I require an illustrator for a fully illustrated cocktail book. This project is to find an illustrator to work with on the final project. The final project will involve full design. I am looking to create a remarkable book. A cocktail book which is fully illustrated. I want to create a leather bound book, which has illustrations throughout. The theme for the book is cocktailmagic so I would like a wizard who can create the cocktail recipes in a puff of smoke and I was thinking of pages designed to look like old parchment. Other than that I have no constraints, allowing your imagination to explore this concept fully. You will be required to submit the following three pages - general design of a standard page - design for a page involving a wizard - design for a chapter start page All pages except the chapter start page should contain one or two cocktail recipes. It doesn't matter what recipe you use. A simple Google search should provide you with a recipe to include. I am willing to consider all artworks on this theme - cartoon, watercolours, mystical, everything. A number of years ago I created a cocktail book just for whisky cocktails. I sold a few hundred. I didn’t make any money but it didn’t cost me anything either. I was happy with it. However, I would now like to create a book for all the spirits. There are a number of aspects which make this book unique from other cocktail books on the market. However, this time I would like to develop something truly remarkable. I bought the domain and had a wizard for my logo. In the book you get the recipes and ‘Magic Tips’. These ‘Magic Tips’ tell you a wide variety of different things, from how the cocktail was created to special techniques you can do to make it something different. I would like to create a book which contains the cocktails, the special tips but which has a lovely graphic theme running through it. I want to create a book which is remarkable, not just because it presents a new way in creating cocktails, but because its design is stunning If you have any questions about the above then please contact me.

    elenabsl was creative, professional and left us with a fantastic ad that we ended up using in a magazine. Communication was quick and effective and the quality was exactly what it needed to be. We would definitely hire again.

    Contest Brief:Hello! ALL YOU NEED IS A GREAT IDEA IN ORDER TO WIN - NO WORK NECESSARY! (sample ad may help) My name is Michael and I started FiddlerShop with my father, two years ago. We sell mainly violins but also a few other classical instruments like Viola and Cello. In two weeks, we will be placing a half page printed ad in Strings magazine. Unfortunately, we don't have good ideas for the advertisement. This is where we need your help! The winner will also have an opportunity to create the artwork for additional payment. Helpful instructions for the half page ad: 1. We sell online only so we want people to visit our website after seeing the ad. 2. We don't necessarily want to focus only on violins but they are by far our biggest interest. 3. We have our own brand of violins called the "Fiddlerman" violins which are sold exclusively on our website. You have 7 days. Good luck!

    Fantastic Job, very happy, would use again.

    Contest Brief:We have a logo already: - which has two kingfisher birds (really just one reversed). I would like 4 more kingfisher birds in exactly the same style (same color layout - e.g., breast is orange, top of wing green - , same brush strokes, same number of stroke detail), just facing different directions and in different poses: 1. Exactly the same as the logo, however with the wings at the end of the down stroke (at the moment they are at the top of the up stroke). 2. Looking front on with wings in, perched, head slightly facing sideways, as if sitting and looking straight at screen. 3. In flight with wings out, from slightly below. 4. In flight with wings out, from slightly above. I have attached a word doc with similar pics of the above poses to help explain. Ive attached the original files that were adjusted to make the logo. In the end i need vector images (eps), psd, ai, and high res jpg files. Really appreciate your help and creativity!

    She did an AMAZING job at designing an image for our packaging...not only did she have creative ideas, but she gave us many options that make the finished product look awesome. We have hired her again for another job!

    Contest Brief:We are launching a skin care line for very sensitive skin. This is a contest to illustrate an image to be used on the sides of one/some of our boxes to show how/where/why to use this product. We want it to be cute, original, fresh, go along with our brand. We want it to appeal to all ages and men, women and children and even babies. We do not want to appear that our products are appropriate for only women or only adults OR only children. 1. An image to go on the side of one of our products that shows how the product will be used. I am attaching a photo of a similar type of image on a competitor's box. This image is trademarked and we want to come up with one that is our own and is unique. I am also attaching a mock up of one of our products (not finished yet) so you can see the feel of the brand. Here is the copy and suggested things to include in this image: A diagram of a body showing all the places it can be used: Please refer to the box for Gold Bond Ultimate healing concentrated therapy--- this is a trademarked image, but I want to do one that is our own and more cute and more human looking. Soothes and calms itchy eczema —pointing to the inside fold of the elbows and/or behind the knees Repairs the skin’s protective barrier—with a little image of big scales of skin that have been laid flat after the ointment is put on Coats cracked, peeling fingers Moisturizes elephant elbows and feet Irons out snake skin shins Takes the fire out of windburned cheeks—Pointing to fiery cheeks—cheeks with little fires next to them For crazy dry skin Protects scrapes and boo boos We will need the image in a vector file.

    Fantastic artist!

    Contest Brief:I am looking for an illustrator to create one black and white illustration - like a Google Doodle. If successful, the job will be 100 illustrations to be part of a printed book of music. This job pays $30. The full job of 100 drawings, if successful, pays $300 (negotiable) and includes your biography and contact details in the book (if you would like) and a copy of the finished book. The illustration should integrate the title of the piece of music with your drawings. For example, you would create the title "Mary Had a Little Lamb" and have something related to the title as part of the design - eg a lamb and some grass amongst the words. See the 2 attached files for a good idea of what is desired. A few points though: - The lettering should all be on one line (unlike the attached file of Romeo and Juliet which is on two lines). - The lettering used in the Romeo and Juliet file is perfect. - The illustration doesn't have to be as detailed as it is in the Romeo and Juliet file, but can be. - The ratio of lettering to illustrations size in the attached Google Doodle is great. The lettering in the Romeo and Juliet file is a bit too big compared to the surrounding drawings. - The lettering/font used in this illustration should be solid black (not an outline). The book is aimed at adults as well as children, so the drawings should be stylish (like Google Doodles), but not childish. Since this is for a printed book, I would like the end files in high resolution PNG files. I would also need exclusive use of the images. For this job of one drawing, choose from any of the following titles to produce the illustration. Mary Had a Little Lamb Spring Autumn Carnival of Venice Can Can Three Blind Mice And another tip, your drawing doesn't have to "interact" with the lettering necessarily, although it can, as long as it doesn't make the title hard to read. It's quite ok to have the drawings, for eg, on one side, or either side of the title. Also see Google Doodles for more examples (however, your drawing should be black and white, not colour). I'm looking forward to seeing what great ideas you may have!

    Thanks for the work.. good communication and changes made with no fuss.. will engage again..

    Contest designs and manufactures a range of decorative art walls lamps for sale online.. Our designs follow common items and articles where we endeavour to stay as faithful to the original shape as possible and it is the stylizing of appendages such as fins, tail, teeth, markings and gills that create the differentiators. Each of our designs incorporates our signature "illuminated eye", so this must be included. Please see attached "eye" image. When a customer views our products, we want them to recognize the species or item because of its shape and be wowed by the enhancements and stylizing. We now seek a graphic artist with creative flair to design our new range of 10 products. The shape of each model must reflect as close as possible the "live" shape of the object. Please see attached 2 documents: 1) Actual fish and models - this shows how we have taken the "live" fish and created our models. The shape or outline of the fish is as faithful to the "live" version as possible and we stylize our models via fins, gills, markings, teeth, tail etc 2) Freelancer fish designs - Please choose any 2 designs from the 6 included and provide me with your designs based on our requirements. include several options for each design if you wish. All designs to include signature "illuminated eye" and gill.. any questions please send message
