Makes kids craft and construction toys. Our new product is a kit that allows kids to build with stickers.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We need a cheeky squirrel character (see our website for images of our squirrels: http://www.squirrelking.org) for our new packaging on our kids toys; initially there are three products (a cart, a sun lounge and a garden set). On each product, we need an in situ rendition and a standalone rendition of the squirrel character. We would like it to be an artistic rendition of our current crafted avatar (the physical toy). We want simplicity and fun. We also want some character. Nothing too cartoony though.
Attached are the designs for the packaging including an image of an early mock up, which indicates the context/placement of the 2 renditions of the squirrels. We would like more polish and personality on the squirrel, but we like the general "simple lines" concept. There are plenty of images of our actual crafted squirrels at http://www.squirrelking.org - as well as some video clips that give a sense of the general character and tenor of our squirrels. We have also attached a picture of the physical avatar (again, many more images on the website).
