We are looking for a preppy, classic, simple, fun design that will be placed on the upper part of the back of a short sleeve t-shirt. The design should be no larger than 13 inches wide x 8.5 inches tall. This design will be most successful if it is kept clean, classic and simple. We felt that even though the design should be very simple, it would be smart to reach out to professionals to polish the design up and take a look through many different design approaches and variations.
We like the idea of the font having a vintage look so that it is worn in, yet very authentic like a letterpress imprint/stamp. We are a southern U.S.A. company based in North Carolina so that is the culture we are trying to capture.
The bow tie will be the most difficult part of this design. We certainly do not want it to look clownish or feminine at all, but instead we would like it to look very handsome, masculine, humble, and unpretentious.
When a customer first looks at this t-shirt design, they need to see all three design elements easily and the bow tie needs to have a striking resemblance to one of our bow ties, so please consult the additional pictures to get a better feel for the shape of our bow tie. Please make sure that although the bow tie will be a stamped image, we would still like it to have life to it, so make sure the bow tie is playful and fun to look at!
We are hoping all of the design elements will work together cohesively to represent our southern bow tie company in one image, thank you!
