Poster needed to visualize Quote
Check out jolene.chen's Illustration or graphics contest…
Myself - I am not part of any organization, but want a cool poster to remind me to kick butt every day. Please feel free to ask me questions to clarify. Communication is key!
What's your vision?
I am looking for an illustrated poster that makes me, as a female, want to break stereotypes and to wake up everyday ready to prove to the world what I am capable of doing. One of the things that resonates with me is a line from the book Lean In that says, "Who wears a tiara on a jungle gym anyways". This quote means that as a female, we often expect people to notice our hard work and reward us for it without taking charge of our own destiny. It's like waiting to be crowned with a tiara because someone notices us. Instead, we should see our careers/life as a jungle gym, you sometimes move up, down, side to side before you make it to the top. We do it ourselves and we take control. Females have to stop waiting for someone to crown us with a tiara, but make our own way to the top of that jungle gym of life. What I want is an illustration that brings to life the idea that in order to conquer the jungle gym, I need to throw away the idea of the tiara. I'm looking for creativity beyond what I can imagine of a jungle gym and a tiara sitting side by side. I DO NOT want any words in the illustration. It should be able to speak for itself. I am open to having a person in the image or just the static objects. As for style, I don't want stock photography, but something that explains this idea very simply but in a cool way. I also want the image to go beyond a literal translation of the objects I am asking for. REQUIREMENTS 1. Include a jungle gym. For those that may not be familiar, here are examples of a jungle gym: http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-photo-jungle-gym-kid-s-playground-image35781180 http://www.toysrus.com/buy/outdoor-play-climbers/lifetime-dome-climber-101301-10861184 2. Include a tiara. Based on the brief this should be secondary in the illustration 3. No words. I do not want the quote on the illustration. It should speak for itself STYLE I am open to style. It can be clean, simple and stark. Or extremely detailed. I just don't want it to look like a jungle gym and a tiara side by side. I want it to tell the story and have the emotion of being driven and confident come out of this. Here are some examples of designs that I find appealing: http://designyoutrust.com/2010/05/si-scott-studio- - What I like about this work is that the actual image is made up of shapes that complete the image. It's not a straight translation of the image (person, bird, etc), but gives it texture and has some imagination to it. http://www.stevenvigil.com/g0o04d7f5rzcevmkmgbvo9fe4oz4al - I really like the simplicity in this style. With a few lines and subtle use of color, it really defines the image. I am also drawn to the more muted coloring here. https://www.behance.net/gallery/19421171/Lakshmi-Sri - The main thing I like about the image with the girl holding the diamond is the texture. This potentially could be a great way to translate the poster, but I am not sure it'll work.
I'm hoping by modifying my brief, I can get something closer to what I am looking for. If you need more time for the design, please let me know. I'm happy to extend this contest for something that I want to hang on my wall and potentially print for others.
