This project here is only the first phase of big project that we are hoping to take on...
We are opening this project for 2 main reasons
1) Create prototypes to verify and validate the feasibility of these products.
2) Find one or more designers that we can work with going forward for the rest of the project or some other projects
Here is the project scope (phase I)
To be selected among finalists: We would like you design Elephant as 3D puzzle. It will be certain dimensions (give and take 0.25 inch in both direction). Please see attached files for dimensions. 3rd dimension should be somehow realistic. You can look for online animal average dimensions and try to make 3rd dimension realistic this way. This product will be for kids in 3 to 6 years ages group... So, adjust your illustrations accordingly.
Please keep in mind that dimensions are in inches. Please multiple by 25.4 to convert them into mm.
This will be like 3D animal puzzles (see links below. We do like them. We want something similar, yet, not 100% same)
This is the similar product in the market
***** I am told that links somehow do not work. Please see attached word document, "Product links" for full links
We like you design everything in 2 dimensions and send us in print ready format and we will print and cut them and put together (but you should obviously do it yourself first to see how they will look in 3D). So, you will need to think how it is going to look like in 3D. This is what kids will do as well. We like you show the body lines on the body and other components as well. See attached example photos (Elephant with Body Lines) ... Kids will color them as well. They are just examples and intent to give you some clarifications. We do not want to limit you in the design. But dimensions are somehow important.
In addition to 3D simple animal puzzle, we like you design 9-inch x 9- inch one coloring page. We like you draw animal related illustrations there (so say if it is lion maybe it is jungle... If it is chicken maybe it is farm. But, initially we like to leave it to you). You can do Google search and see in which kind of environment Elephant lives... This will be black and white illustration that kids will color. Again, you will draw that in 2D and kids will color
Once we select you among the finalists, we will go ahead and ask you to do Lion and Chicken as well... Based on those all designs we will select winner. We plan to continue to work with winner on 1- on-1 project. We will probably ask additional 10 to 15 designs on those 1-on-1 project. But, even if you are not winner but among the finalists we might have some other 1-on-1 projects with you as well
Please see all attached files to understand this project better...
Looking forward to your work
