Cheeky Monkey Creations
Cheeky Monkey Creations is a new Australian based business and I need a logo to get me started. My product is simple….handmade greeting cards sold online or at specific craft events. I offer my customers original one off or limited edition handmade greeting cards and include with purchase the service of handwriting a greeting and posting the card to the intended recipient. Eventually I would like to expand my products but for now I am focusing on the handmade card range.
My products and services are aimed at Internet savvy consumers who don’t have time to browse the shelves for greeting cards and also don’t want just an average glossy mass produced “Hallmarkesque” card.
I am looking for a logo that’s original (please do not use any stock images or clip art in the logo).
I would like the logo to incorporate a monkey punching/popping through a cartoon style circle (similar to the old Looney Toons credits) and have attached a photo of a monkey that I would like my logo to be based on.
The monkey should look cheeky (in keeping with the business name) but I don’t want it to be a naughty/sexy looking monkey, it should be a mischievous, innocent looking monkey with a big smile/grin or even a wink. I would also like the business name to be incorporated into the logo and the name should be clear, simple and bold. I really like the font Ravie (see attached example).
A few things to think about:
• Prefer Cartoon style so nothing too realistic.
• You are allowed to be creative with color, but no more than 2 or 3 please. I really like lime/light greens and browns.
• Company website is not available as yet but successful designer may be asked to also design website graphics.
• It has to scale well at different sizes, look good as black & white or when reproduced in outline format as a rubber stamp etc.
• I will also require the font files where applicable.
The files I will require are:
• For printing: Vector - .ai (CMYK)
• For screen: Vector - .ai (RGB)
Note: Files must be compatible with Adobe Illustrator CS3 and Adobe Photoshop CS3.
