Silly Munchkins is opening a new store downtown in Ketchikan, Alaska selling toys and gifts for kids that will remind them of their cruise ship vacation to Alaska.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I'm looking for a fun, exciting design for our exterior building sign that will be attached above the awning of the store The size must be 6 ft wide and 18" to 3 feet tall. There must be at least 6 inches of blank space at the bottom of the sign because it will be covered by the "lip" of the awning. In addition, I'll be hanging another smaller sign (12-18" tall) of the same design above the sidewalk. The building is painted a rather ugly blue that could clash with my store colors, so click on this link to the real estate company so you can see the color of the building http://gatewaycityrealty.com/index.…for_lease/ . We are an existing business and already have a logo. The sign must include "Silly Munchkins" in the ActionIs font (provided) and "downtown" in a much smaller size/font. Must include the line art of the retro kids (included). My store colors are turquoise (CMYK 188.8.131.52) and orange (CMYK 0 48 56 0). The shades can be tweaked if necessary to get a brighter sign. But keep in mind the blue of the building kind of clashes with my turquoise, so it shouldn't be a dominate color. I'm looking for a sign that grabs tourists attention, and entices them to cross the street to see what fun things they can find inside. The sign should communicate that Silly Munchkins Downtown is a good place to find fun toys and gifts for kids that will remind them of the cruise ship vacation to Alaska.
This should be a really fun project to work on! I hope you all enjoy the challenge!
I am going to have the signs printed on ultra metal from signazon.com. Go here for more information http://www.signazon.com/outdoor-sig…tal-signs/. For best results, signazon recommends the following upload file types: Vector Based Post Script. PS, EPS or PDF - Vector Based Adobe Illustrator. AI. I would also want a jpeg file of the final design. Please note the background would be a metal, which is not part of the design I'm looking for. Therefore, your designs should have a solid background so the metal won't show through.
