I have a black cotton tote bag and I need a design to be printed on it. The bag is a large 41x41cm square with a handle top centre and a long shoulder strap so that the bag can be hands-free! I may also use the design on t-shirts aswell. I had originally got lots of words printed on the bag, (see photo on street) but i have decided to go with more of a design orientated bag.
-The chosen design will be printed in white onto the black bag so the design has to be bold enough and not too intricate. I would like a design that is simple and clean without clutter.
-LETTERS- I experimented with just the letters of "LINES & CURRENT" in various grid type layouts but couldn't make it work. The letters didn't divide up in an aesthetically pleasing way!!
-CIRCLE- Then i looked at the idea of a circle with "Lines & Current" presented on the top curve. I like 2 themes for the centre image.
1. Perhaps a simple 3 peak wave design emphasising the theme of water- with the phrase "going with the flow since 2015" on the bottom curve.
2. the second them i like emphasises the idea of the' L&C GIRL.' The sketch of the girls face is a line drawing of the face and has FLOW in the hair (Lines &Current). Please see the quick sketch of both (downloaded sideways)
I would suggest words in the circle should be simple, bold, lower case and you use 'type face' font, or the type used in 'American Apparel' marketing.
Please feel free to design something that is not in a circular logo shape using the themes above.
