Design a Custom Cigar Band
- Status: Closed
- Prize: $200
- Entries Received: 22
- Winner: midget
This contest is for the design of a custom cigar band. This cigar is a cooperation between a coffee company and a cigar company, so the band will need to have elements of both corporate identities.
Attached is the following:
- The logo for the cigar company (both JPG and AI)
- The logo for the coffee company
- An example of how someone combined both logos (combined [login to view URL]). It is a sample, you DO NOT need to use this art.
- An image showing the layout of a cigar band (band [login to view URL])
Some notes on your design:
1: The design should be serious, not comical.
2: The corporate identity of the cigar company is vintage and art deco; it is wise to reflect this.
3: You do NOT have to use either existing logo in your design. You could, but we would rather see you create something new, unique and creative, such as a new monkey with an art deco style.
4: The name of the cigar company needs to appear somewhere on the band, even if it is on the back side (not part of the main/center artwork).
5: This band will be small and is for a small cigar. So, the design should be clean and simple, not too elaborate.
6: We are willing to use any color scheme in the band design, however we are leaning toward a black and white design. Either way, I would not use more than two or three colors in your design.
7: Final printing can be embossed if necessary.
We will probably need to tweak the winning entry to make it work, please be willing to alter it slightly for us.
Thanks and good luck!
“Great job, thanks a lot!”
