How signsandwondersinc started their stationery journey
Looking for a sexy label to go on top of our makeup jars. We are a mineral makeup company named SWEET minerals (makeup) - fun and sexy and simple. We sell in salons and boutiques. We love pinks (baby or hot), black and white, & chocolate brown. We also love DANMASK (see attached image) but you do not have to use danmask by any means! All of our packaging and names are in candy containers hence the name sweet.
Our name is really SWEET but we have to have minerals in there too so if you could have Sweet larger and possibly in a different font.
Do you take bribes? Just kidding, sort of :-) We are looking for a quick good designer who will be able to do stuff in the future for not only sweet minerals but for signs and label designs for clients. My daytime job is at a sign company and we are needing a designer for that so the winner will have alot more work in the future.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Women ages 25 - 45, we want to hit their sweet tooth for makeup. Our names are things like butter cream fluff (this is just a color name example, the only words that need to be on the label are SWEET minerals).
The company was under a different name and the labels are to homemade, however we do want - labels with "wings" (see example label http://www.signsandwondersinc.com/IMG_0529.jpg ). We also really like this design http://www.signsandwondersinc.com/labels_01.pdf We need something that will appeal to womens love to candy/chocolate but also not be cartoony or busy. One look at the lid needs to convey "Wow that it hot" and "yummy that looks good" all at the same time.
- We have our own equipment to print these labels so please put in an outline that we can edit in illustrator to be a cut line.
- Use your creativity - we are not picky but we need to be taken seriously when we are selling makeup in stores :-)
- The printer we will be printing on is a Roland VS-640 (prints metallic and white) so think about that. If you can add the Roland Metallic Swatch to your Illustrator that would be awesome - if not no worries! I can go in and make a bright pink a metallic bright pink. Ideally I think the most prominent color you use I would like to turn into a metallic so if you don't add the swatch it's no problem. I can look up on my chart and just change it in illustrator.
Our containers range from 0.75" in diameter to 1.5" so please have a vectorized file that we can edit sizes and colors. The "wings" should be 1/4 - 1/2" wide and no longer than 1/2" long from edge of the top of the label to the end of the wing.
Thank you so much for even taking the time to read this brief on what we are needing.
