🔥NEEDED🔥 Simple Yet Effective Sign for Brick & Mortar Piano Studio
Check out Sara Bash's Signage contest…
Entertainment & The Arts
👋Hello Designers! Welcome to our contest. (I said "Our because this contest is as much about YOU and YOUR amazing talent as it is about me) Here's a little about me. I feel that many piano teachers today do not have the skills or personality to be result-focused, fun, and personable all at the same time. Most of them are only one of these at a time. My focus is to break the mold of the old piano teacher stigma, where they slap your hand with a ruler, or yell at you the moment you do something wrong. I want to bring the piano out from the classical world and into a more accessible, modern, hip and stylish world. My customers are parents 40-55 years old who have children who want to learn. And adults 25+ who to learn how to play. Creativity is key designers
What's your vision?
We are looking for a sign to put up in front of our building. The sign measures 13ft wide x 3ft High. This sign will be printed on plexiglass and lit from behind so please keep that in mind when designing. It is very important that the sign be legible. So please no serif fonts. We don't want the font to feel stiff or uptight but we also don't want it to feel kiddish. I think we prefer the edges of the letters soft and not super sharp. If you disagree please let us know. We want a simple sign that is laid out well. Please keep in mind that this sign will be read from the street so the contrast is important. You can use color but use it thoughtfully. Please make sure to place the logo to the right of the words. 👉 Why I’m not making this contest blind? I know that as a designer one of your biggest fears is having your design idea stolen and the prize money going to someone else. You don't have to worry about that happening in this contest, because I will not be awarding stars to any of the designs. I will be giving feedback directly to you. So other designers won't know that I like your design and won't know to copy you. Thank you for taking the time to enter my contest, Looking forward to seeing your designs, - Sara
In the example sign that i put up please note how the word PIANO and (555) 555-5555 is larger and stands out it's very important that that is clear legible and stands out. The words that are needed on the sign are "Piano Lessons" "Text PIANO to (555) 555-5555 for more information "Ages 9-99" Other than that the logo has to be in there to the right of the design. I uploaded screen grabs from our site that is under development to give you an idea of the kind of studio we are and to give you some idea. I've also uploaded the piano image that is to be used in the design. I uploaded 3 different colors of it feel free to use the one you feel is best. We LOVE flat design and the flat design color pallet. 🎨 Please DO NOT use piano keys 🎹 in your design. Every other piano studio does this and we would like to be different. If you have ANY questions for me that will help guide your design don't hesitate to ask. I'm here to help and assist you in any way I can!
