Contest Brief

Please notice the hoodie design. This is not exactly the style we want, but it should be similar. We wish for the design to be a mosaic effect that appears more as an abstract fire on a black background. It should be black at the very bottom, then the mosaic effect will come up and reveal subtle facets of greys. 50% should be the lightest. NO WHITE ANYWHERE IN DESIGN.

Notice the colors in the sculpture image. Aqua, winter green, deep purples. We would like hints of these colors, but in extremely subtle ways. The overall images should read as mostly black, but with greyscale in the mosaic and to add depth, and a small hint of these other colors sprinkled in gradually as the design moves upward. Consider hair that appears black, but sometimes shows a light hint of blue. This is similar to the effect we are going for.

Lastly, please notice the shirt image with low-poly design. This is not the style we want. It is what I created before I understood what they are looking for. I am including to show how this design will be placed and for what use. It is for band uniform tops. It also shows how dark we want the colors to be overall, and how each shape is a gradient instead of a solid color. My client wishes for the fire concept to appear as if it were traveling up to the right shoulder of the shirt, just slightly above the chest.

Majority of design should be black and greyscale (silver, greys, etc), with very tiny amounts of aqua and dark blue sprinkled in. We want it to have a mosaic appearance sort of like the hoodie image, but with shapes that are more curved and overall resembling a fire shape with embers.

Please do not use the default stained glass filter in photoshop or illustrator. that is not what we want. We also do not want a low-poly style look, although it is also slightly similar in technique. Gradient coloring in all of the shapes would work well to help the colors remain subtle, as well as add depth.

Strongly prefer vector, but will consider raster images if aesthetic is right. I work in Illustrator CC, CorelDraw 2018, and Photoshop CC. Please submit in CMYK

Size can be 36" x 36" @ 200dpi (if raster)

I will require the layered workfile from whatever programs you use to create the art, to make edits possible. If I cannot edit the art, the project is not considered complete.

Please feel free to ask me any questions. Thank you.
