Contest Brief

I need a high resolution image that will be used to decorate the bottom of a stand-up paddleboard. A paddleboard is similar to a surfboard but quite a bit larger. The boards that this will be used with are 144 inches long and 31 inches wide. The image must be capable of being enlarged to this size with minimal pixelation. The image should be rectangular in shape and 4 times as long as it is wide.

I would like to see a Tie Dye type design. I am open to almost anything but I have attached a picture of a board with this type of design as an example. I like colors similar to the ocean and sunset, blues, greens, yellows, oranges for example.

Please note: The example board has a banner with the name "Sweetwater" - this is not my logo and I don't want "Sweetwater" in the image. I just am showing this image as an example. The image I want will not have any logo or words - just art.

People have recommended that a vector design would be best for this project.

***** PLEASE NOTE: The image that I need should be in the shape of a rectangle that is about 4 times as long as it is wide. Not in the shape of a board. The factory will fit the rectangle to the board and trim the corners as needed.

    it is not possible to make a tie and die effect changing color in every pixel in vector format. vector wont handle pixel to pixel changes.

      Is there any format to use that would not be pixellated when enlarged to the size I need?

      You can use also raster file format as JPEG for example without pixellating on englargement. Just use actual size with enought pixel per inch settings.

    You may want to use a vector design it is math based opposed to bit map and can re size to any size with No pixelation.
    Example below,

      Thank you for recommending using a vector design. That does seem like the best format for this.
