The designer was very good at following instructions for detailed changes in the design. He was very responsive and helped me to arrive at a design that I am very happy with.
Love working with Norma. Thanks!

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We sell upmarket products online in the United States and Europe. Our products are manufactured to our specifications.
We target our products to more the upmarket area, mainly adult but this will be the first product in the children's range.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I am looking for a children's design to print onto a ceramic food cup for children.
The design should be based on a character theme. Something that children will be drawn to and should be colourful and fun.
We are looking to use this same design on other products with the aim to expand our children's range using these characters on all our products.
The characters can be as creative and fun as the imagination runs.
We are thinking maybe 4 - 6 characters.
The first product we are making is a food cup. This will hold things like, chips, chicken pieces, fish pieces etc. If the food cup is bright enough and fun enough it may encourage kids to also eat.
We have a food cup and a small matching dipping sauce cup.
I have attached an image of the food cup shape that we are wanting to print the characters on.
Ideally, being characters, they can be spaced and placed around the food cup and also the dipping cup.
When we request characters, they do not need to be based on people, they can be anything and can have the human characteristics of eyes, mouth etc. added to them.
The more 'quirky and fun' the better. Different is always great.
We would like to keep away from the character ideas already done such as minions, sponge bob, telly tubbies and all those already recognised characters.
I am thinking of printing all the characters on the one food cup, however may eventually do one character per cup.
