Sitka Summer Music Festival's "Local Lodgings Partner Program"
The Sitka Summer Music Festival (http://sitkamusicfestival.org/) has been bringing world-class classical musicians to Alaska since 1972. We are launching a new project to attract investment from local lodgings, such as Bed & Breakfasts, lodges, hotels and motels. We are inviting these businesses to become a "Lodgings Partner of the Sitka Summer Music Festival". Among other benefits, they will receive a window cling identifying them as a member of this program and featuring the program design.
There are 70 such lodgings businesses in Sitka, some are in high-traffic areas downtown, others are in more remote locations. Because of the diversity of locations, we are targeting guests of the lodgings as well as general visitors to town. There's a lot going on in the lobby of a lodging, therefore the design needs to be clean and easy to read/see. While some of these businesses already contribute to the Festival, many will be new supporters. We want to demonstrate to these businesses as well as their patrons that classical music is fun, appealing to a broad range of people, and that we bring people to town who spend money. Therefore, we don't want the design to be stuffy, and we want it to clearly indicate that this is a partnership between a classical music organization and a lodging.
I would like the window cling to say:
Stay with Us! (or integrate this into the icon) Design (insert cute program icon) Lodging Partner of the Sitka Summer Music Festival (tag line)
Ideas for execution -- We want a design that clearly indicates the partnership is between a classical organization and a lodging. We want the design and the text to be clear and easy to read. While we want this to be fun, we would like the font of the text to be more clean and classy - not bubble writing.
For the icon, I envision something along the lines of a cello reclining in a bed. But that's just a thought from an amateur - please be creative.
We would like two options - one with black background and one with clear background - for uses in addition to window cling.
The design needs to fit the specs: less than 20 MB in size - EPS, JPG, TIF, BMP, GIF, PNG file type. We would prefer JPG.
Please do not use any stock images or clip art in the icon.
