How Jill Nagle started their other graphic design journey
This clockface-style pet feeder indicator is used to keep track of when a pet has last been fed. The mechanical features have been designed, and now it needs a creative graphic element, one for cats and one for dogs. See sketch + more information here: http://jillnagle.typepad.com/invent…cator.html
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I have a patent pending on the mechanical technology of this pet feeder indicator. Now, I want to create a graphic design that can be reproduced and manufactured to sell in pet stores. Actually, two designs: one for cats and one for dogs. Or one great design--I am open to ideas!
The indicator either needs to say "fed," or there has to be some way of knowing what the indicator is indicating, so people don't wonder whether it means "feed me" or "fed!"
It could be inside a cat face or dog face--the indicator part just has to be able to be large enough for the elderly to see clearly. It could have a place for the human companion to place a photograph of the animal.
You can also play with the shape of the indicator, the fonts, anything, as long as the device is still able to do its job.
YES: I am looking for fun and playful, Cute, catchy, bold, snappy, CLEAR. See sketch here of text to include, plus more description:
