Ilya S got their new merchandise by running a design contest:
Cute Apron Hand Lettering & Illustration Design to Appeal to Women
Check out Ilya S's Merchandise contest…
Food & Drink
We are creating a brand for beautiful high-quality aprons with motivational/funny/witty sayings on them that appeal in color and design predominantly to women.
What's your vision?
This project is about designing an Apron illustration + hand lettering a few words that will be embroidered onto the apron. Design needs to use a maximum of 2-3 colors, since it will be *embroidered* onto the fabric. (Monochrome would also work - open for suggestion). We are looking for someone who has good ideas on how to make a cute, good looking illustration for the given saying, illustration however should be secondary and handlettering is primary. The words to design are "Bake the world a better place" or "All you knead is love", we need both eventually and are looking for a designer to work long term with. If we like your work we would have more things to design in a similar style. Googling the phrase will give a few ideas on illustration, but we don't particularly like any and as we said an illustration is not a must. Or if you type in "funny apron" on Amazon you will also have quite a few results, all of which are very basic though. Please see attached file for a bit more info. The color of the apron can be changed too if desired, but we very much like the blue-beige combination (see attached file)
We are looking for a really cute and nice design to start with, something that is elegant and simple, yet not too boring and dull (just text). But also we don't have a clear guide how it should be, so you are quite free in your expression of how and what you would like to draw/hand letter.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their merchandise.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Ilya S collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Great Designer, had an intuitive feel for what we wanted from our description and we accepted his designs with barely any revisions as the winners of the contest. Would recommend any time!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
