SPECIAL DESIGN NOTES: Please bring an ORIGINAL illustration/take on the mascots. We aren't interested in recycling the existing images.
Also, please incorporate the LOGO (attached) and the YEAR (2016) into the design.
We are most interested in VECTOR drawings as these images will need to be scaled to fit various sizes.
We'd also like each freak in the design to be on it's own LAYER so they can be used separately.
Every year, we produce a printed guide of all the shows produced at our festival. This contest is centered around the GUIDE COVER IMAGE; the seminal representation of the 2016 festival.
This guide cover will also be adapted into a BILLBOARD placed in key positions in Los Angeles, CA.
Here are six guides of years past:
Generally, the cover image includes our mascots - "the freaks". The five main freaks are included on the cover of the 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 Guides. The "look" of these freaks should be adapted to fit the your unique aesthetic so feel free to play into your comfort zone.
Dimensions of the guide cover are: 5.5" (width) x 8.5" (height)
For your reference, we have attached a pdf containing former adaptations of the freaks. You can also see examples in the links above.
The winner of this contest is immediately eligible for additional work finishing off the rest of the guide design. See below for more info.
