I need graphics designed for a t-shirt, a mug, and possibly some temporary tattoos. The shirt and mug are both for my students - more detail to come with images below, but the image themes are a lantern, and a cottage in the woods with a lantern.
The theme for the retreat where these will be sold is "holding the lantern for each other." My logo is a lantern with a heart flame, and this can be used, or played with (image below).
The tattoo +/or the mug can also be the lantern itself, as the more detailed t-shirt image with the cottage in the woods probably wouldn't work for a little tattoo/mug.
The tagline for both the shirt and the mug is: The Tribe of After. Either or both can have the sub-tagline of "holding the lantern for each other." or something quite similar. I'm open to suggestions for any of these.
The t-shirt design can be front only, or front and back, with a small design on the front / larger on the back. Larger design for a front-only t-shirt will be cheaper to produce, so maybe lean that direction.
The mug can be the lantern used in the larger image, unless the cottage is so graphically clean, it will read well on a mug. I tend towards clean and less cluttered, and favor a woodcut style, but play with it. I love the heart flame in my original logo.
Cottage/cabin - think magical, warm, cozy, inviting rather than creepy and falling down. Is there a person on the porch holding up the lantern? I don't know. Maybe!
I should probably have my website url on these products somewhere, right? Even if it's in small print. the site is http://www.refugeingrief.com. The tagline is grief support that doesn't suck (but you don't need to use that!)
