How Gabirich started their other graphic design journey

Summary

We're creating a new design for a pillow that needs to show a screaming face. We'd like something fun as it will fit into a novelty line and should also be appealing and catchy for a first impression

Company name

The Brightside Group

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

I am interested in seeing some fun designs for this pillow which will appeal to audiences aged between 25 and 70. 

My original artwork was rather "in your face" (no pun intended) and pretty unattractive (think Mick Jagger...) so this time I need it to be "approachable" yet still convey passion -- whether anger, extreme joy or extreme sadness.

I would like to convey the message of professionalism while at the same time being quirky; appealing while being interesting and something which a buyer would be attracted to if seeing if for the first time.

We plan on selling the pillows through gift stores, catalogs and online and intend to have a line of "emotions"so would be interested in various designs -- anything to do with passionate feelings.   

I would like the deisgns to incorporate no more than 5 colors and something that can be easily silk-screened. Clean, crisp designs and pleasing to the eye.
