We formed a family team to raise money for research to cure Type 1 diabetes on behalf of our 13 year old daughter, who has Type 1. Our Team Name is Doodles Against Diabetes (since we have two labradoodles, Rusty and Romeo). We need a wonderful image that we can use in different formats - on our team T shirt and in fundraiser emails. It needs to pull at people's heart strings and make them want to give. It also needs to make a great, cool T-shirt that all of our daughter's 13 year old friends want to own and wear. And our grown up friends too!
We want to feature our doodles (Rusty and Romeo, photos attached). We love the card that someone sent to our daughter (attached) featuring our two dogs. That may be a way to go. Maybe using graphics a lot like what's on the card, including the two dogs and the hearts in some way?
We also want others who have dogs or love dogs to feel included. So maybe somehow there's a nod to all sorts of doodles - ours are cream and reddish brown (Rusty a girl; Romeo, a boy) - but there's also black and multi-colored doodles (brown or black with splotches of white). Cuteness beyond belief.
But we are looking for something with detail - so the dogs faces really feel human in some way (without being an actual photo), rather than abstract or too cartoony. Also it would be nice to have red in the image somewhere, as a nod to diabetes.
