Contest Brief

EDIT: I removed some of the background context here so people could focus down on the things that I found really important. I'm happy to provide additional context to people who submit designs!]

Background: My dad and I are going on a trip to Alaska in a little over a month. Dad and I are close but live far apart and this trip will be a chance to bond again. I told Dad on Father's day that he could choose anywhere in North America to go on this trip and he chose Alaska because it it's the only state he has never visited before! We'll be spending a week there doing typical Alaska things: glaciers, hikes, boats etc. I want to give him a really cool graphic t-shirt to commemorate this special trip for the two of us.

What I want: I want a graphic that I can print on a t-shirt to commemorate this trip and honor the fact that it is his 50th state. My dad loves vintage-looking t-shirts so this would be something he would treasure. The design should get across (in words or images) that we are going on a father daughter trip to Alaska for David's 50th state.

PICTURES:
[EDIT: Removed all pictures.

FUN FACTS:
[EDIT: Removed some fun facts so people can focus on the things that I really care about]. Here are some more fun facts to give you ideas that you could incorporate into the design. I definitely don't think you could incorporate all of these, but here are some fun facts to get the creative ideas flowing:

1. My dad loves vintage looking t-shirts and I want this shirt to have a similar feel.
2. My dad has visited all 49 states. He and I are going to Alaska on a father-daughter trip. This will be his 50th state.
2. I am the oldest in the family. Dad calls me "thing 1" and my siblings "thing 2" and "thing 3" like the characters from Dr. Seuss.
6. My dad's name is David and my name is Miranda.

      Hi Sajin! Just FYI I updated the brief and removed some of the photos so that people would focus on the really important thing, which is that we are going on a father-daughter trip to Alaska.

    This sounds like an interesting project. Unfortunately the contest holder is not rating any designs or giving feedback. Lots of quality designers will simply pass this by because of that.

      As long as it also references Alaska and the fact that it's a father daughter trip that sounds great!

    Can I send you a proposal in a sketch? I want to make a great design for your father, but if I made the final art probably, then you won't like I loose time. You can check my artworks in my Instagram profile @cramer.ilustra.

      Hi Erica! I checked your instagram. It looks like you make cool designs! I'd love to see a sketch or mock-up - it doesn't have to be final. That way I can give feedback!
