I am a Firefighter/EMT, and also own a screen printing business. I would like to offer shirts, that others like me can wear. The biggest issue with T’s that you usually find is that they have a horrible generic look to them. (The words EMS or EMT plastered all over them, or cartoonish squads). I would like to have some apparel designed that screams edgy, but shows others my passion. So here it is.
This is for a custom Emergency Medical Services shirt. (EMS) I am looking for a shirt that looks like it was made for a dept, but does not have a generic look to it. I.e. Doesn’t have the words EMS, Medic, EMT, etc. attached to it.
The shirt will have a full back side, and a small front (middle of chest). The shirt can only come in dark colors (black, grey, navy blue).
Please remember that this is to be a custom shirt, and I in no way want this to look “Generic”
I want this shirt to look edgy, and not cartoon-ish.
You may use any colors, but I ask that you limit them to three colors.
I plan on this being the first of a few shirts that we are going to have designed.
The shirt must include the following on the back:
-A shirt that has a grunge, or MMA look and feel to it.
-A Rod of Asclepius that is made of a snake wrapped around a needle, or a star of life with the snake wrapped around a needle, or a caduceus with a needle instead of a staff and grungy looking wings. Please be creative. The needle may drip blood if you wish. The snake’s teeth may drip blood. I really don't have anything extremely specific in mind.
The shirt back will not include generic type look (Anything that says EMS, Medic, Paramedic, or EMT)
The shirt must include the following on the front:
-A look that rivals the image on the back
-The phrase “The bleeding will stop…Eventually” Doesn’t matter what letters are capitalized (If any), but absolutely no Bleeding Cowboy font. (I hate the overuse of that font)
Please see the attached files for the type of look I would like to have.
I will use the following star system:
1 Star- Not usable
3 Stars-Starting to go down a road I’m willing to travel
5 Stars-Exactly what I’m looking for.
I will be happy to give all the feedback I can.
I will guarantee the money once I give a three star rating and I have ten submissions.
Delivery of files must include the following file type:
1. Adobe Illustrator
And should include the following types:
3.PSD with each layer in tact
I would like to have #2 and #3, but I will not disqualify a designer for not submitting them. The reason for the need for #1 is the need not to have transparencies and soft edges (drop shadows, etc.). From a printer's point of view, this is a true need.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I know that it may seem that I have something very specific in mind, but really I have a type of look in mind and that is what I'm trying to convey.
