We are a dance competition company seeking a branded t-shirt design for our 2017 competition season. The designer should have an understanding of silk screening and color selection. Our printer has requested PMS colors.
Please limit the design to 4 colors on the front and 2 colors on the back for screen printing cost effectiveness.
Our customers are 99% FEMALES younger than 21 YEARS. They are very in tune to current trends and social media. We want an edgy, vibrant and energetic feel to the design, we do not want it to look "cheesy" or childish. Think music concert tour shirt. We do have a logo which is full color, but the design can utilize the logo in any color. Or, if you find using the logo difficult, simply using the business name "StarQuest" (capital "s" capital "q") will work for the right design.
Our past shirts have been uninspired and lacking in quality. We want something so trendy the dancers will have to buy it!
The use of dancer silhouettes is fine, but I want to avoid common outlines of dancers leaping or with one foot to the other knee (in passe). I also want to avoid ballet dancers wearing tutus or on pointe shoes. The exception would be utilizing silhouettes of dancers in multiple dance styles.
The back of the shirt will be an alphabetical list of all of our regional tour stops and our finals tour stops. These locations can be accessed here: http://www.starquestdance.com/sched…-schedule/ The information for our finals locations can be found on the home page. I will include a photo of the back of last years shirt.
The t-shirt color will be deep purple in color.

The file needs to be created in Illustrator. We need vector art files. The fonts need to be saved as outlines. No placed graphics. No transparencies. No CMYK values; each color needs to be assigned a PMS color. The files need to be saved as an ai or an eps file.
