WANTED: Creative and engaging ANIMAL SCENES for Baby Placemats that are 12"x18".
Please design for ages 6 months through 3 years (children who cannot read). Babies enjoy pictures of recognizable images: animals, sealife, things that "go" (cars, trains), etc. They like to search for images and discover and find things they recognize. Can include real images or illustrations or a combination of the two. If using original illustrations, please be sure that the animals/objects are VERY recognizable and not easily confused or mistaken for something else. It's important to be simple enough for a baby to look at, and yet engaging enough for a toddler (detailed jungle image sample is NOT a good example of simplicity, but the animals are very realistic).
We would like to select 3 winning designs for production, so please feel free to submit more than one entry! We are especially interested in placemat graphics with these themes:
1. Farm (including animals, tractors, barn, etc)
3. Ocean (including sealife and boats, etc)
5. Noah’s Ark
Please note that we would like these to be SCENES, not a random animal illustration or assortment of animal pictures thrown together on one page. We would like it to look like a baby picture book that shows a scene that you might see on a farm, etc.
