We like designs that are simple and not overly done with graphics. Definitely no cartoon or overly bubbly designs. We are an edgy country music clothing brand. Simple black and white designs will be preferred. Splashing hot pink, red-white and blue or other colors should be done only after a great base design is created.
Things we like:
-black and white color schemes with limited use of other colors
-illustrations and simple flat graphics
-feminine lines and fonts
-urban and modern country (meaning not as old-school western)
DESIGN and ILLUSTRATION elements to experiment with: hearts, roses, barbed wire, crosses, horses, boots, cowboy hats, skulls, pistols, american flags, camouflage, horse shoes, etc... Remember the final design should be feminine! Illustrations and graphics don't have to be used if you are good with Typography and use the words "Country Rebel Clothing Co."
Things to AVOID:
-cartoon style graphics
-extreme grunge and "biker gang" hell's angels designs
-too many colors in a design (3-4 tops)
-heavily old school "western" design
