I’d like to create modern ethnic canvas with illustrations (or nicely retouched photos) and powerful/inspirational quotes for the website Trésor Ethnique
Ideal prospect is young couples aging 30-35 years, that would like to buy wonderful home decorations for their new house
Or maybe single women 30-35 years (I'm more looking for a feminine design)
A modern design would work best (clean, refined, chastened)
Most of the design would have an overall uniform background/layout, to make the quote easily readable with a good contrast
Considering the dimensions of the canva, the quote should not be bigger than 40% of the canva.
Then there would be an illustration connected to the ethnic/spiritual.
It can be retouched photos. I was not considering it at first, though nice designs have been provided in that way.
But be aware of the rights: you absolutely need to source images free of rights (either free or less than 70€).
You can get inspired by the images of my website, but don't use those until you source them corretly online, since I can't guarentee those images are free from rights for commercial purposes.
If you really like one and can't find it, let me know and I can try to source it for you.
Furthermore, be aware an elaborate and original illustration would win over an elaborate retouched photo.
The quote and the illustration should have an equal importance.
Be aware the winner design would be the one with:
- an illustration that fits the quote
- provide an illustration with a nice design
- quote easily readable, contrast, and good positioning with the illustration
- interesting layout (it can either be an illustration or a retouched photo, like the Manhattan background on the image attached)
See examples in images attached, the concept is what I’m looking to (but of course it has to be adapted to the “ethnic” interests)
I really like the layout on these images.
You can also see other examples of canvas with 100% illustrations at this URL: https://www.beapit.com/collections/canvas
Be aware, the layout is not really what I'm looking to.
Though, those are interesting illustrations for the manly target (of course, I'm not looking for this style, adapt it for ethnic and feminine audiences)
Here are the citations I have selected
There are in French since I’m targeting European French-speaking countries, however I give you the translation, so you can understand them and provide an appropriate design.
You can make a design from the one you have better inspiration with
1 citation per design
Also, please refer to specifications below the quotes
Should anything not be perfectly clear to you, please send me your questions at email@example.com, and I will gladly clarify
Have a good work!
