LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
A whirlybub is a brand new type of tealight holder for the UK. Like a glass bubble it looks beautiful suspended from fishing wire and even better once you place a lit tealight candle inside. Simple and elegant in design they look great clustered together as a light installation, hanging from trees in the garden, for christmas, for weddings, the list goes on and on.
We have an idea that this whirlybub has a real personality: it's good looking and it knows it, but it is so cute and charming you can't help loving it!
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
We want a simple illustration to go on our website and marketing material of our new whirlybub character. We want the shape of the actual product to feature as part of the character and imagine the best way is to have the head in the shape of the tealight holder. The illustration must show the hole at the front of the holder and the closed loop on top of the holder. As this holder will most commonly be used with fishing wire through the loop at the top and with a tealight inside, featuring these somehow in the illustration would probably work well to make clear its purpose.
In our heads, the holder is like an astronaut's helmet with the eyes etc visible through the hole in the front. The holder/head is the focus so should be oversized with the rest of the body less important. These are just ideas - we are open-minded to better ones.
Showing us how you would copy the style of your character in the lettering of "whirlybub" would be great. We like the idea of the "i" having a flame instead of a dot.
Please see the attached files for close ups of the product from different angles. On the top of the whirlybub are two small holes. These should appear in the illustration but shouldn't be a main feature.
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
Lets face it, the average guy does not spend a lot of time thinking about candle holders so our target audience is women. We want to convey that the whirlybub is fun but above all that it is versatile, stylish and eye-catching.
WE LIKE THESE DESIGNS:
We like the mazuma character.
We like the idea of this illustration in just one or two colours.
We like the idea of this character as a simple cartoon-style line drawing.
WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE (or we don't want to see) THIS IN OUR DESIGN:
Must have the shape of the holder.
Must design lettering for "whirlybub" to go alongside the illustration.
