My dribbble subs - Coffee Rocket, Sink or Swim, Flying Hare Pet Salon. Revs before Threadless?

I have not had a lot of time to try and get my ideas for the dribbble contest worked on but today I finally got 2 of them at least sketched out on post-it notes. What do you think?


I finished up Sink or Swim - Vote Here


Ok I'm going with this version. Rev 3 - Vote Here





Coffee Rocket art Rev 2 - Simplified and beefed up the lines.

Presentation


My progress on Coffee Rocket. I'm not sure I like how it is going but I'm tired and was probably messing more up on it than actually doing it right. I might try to do Sink or Swim tomorrow then go back to this one before the deadline.


Sink or Swim Plumbing & Pool Services

idea: it is a company that does both Plumbing and Pool repair services. I thought the name was a good pun and might make a funny illustration.


COFFEE ROCKET - espresso bar & pub

idea: coffee mug on a rocket with an espresso bean planet (w/ rings) and cool type surrounding it. Probably on a brown or black shirt.




Dinosaur Radio Repair

idea: T-Rex crushing an Old School Boom Box in its mouth. Type treatment of the words "Dinosaur Radio Repair" would be added around the illustration in some way. Probably on a green shirt.

Just came up with a 3rd idea and had to share. Now if I can only find the time to vector them up and get the typography right.

don't you just love how I had to stick two post-it notes together to get my whole Coffee Rocket sketch done...

Thanks guys. Hopefully I can get them vectored up in time. Voting over there seems more obviously a popularity contest and who knows who but we will see how this pans out.

Is the winner selected by the most votes? or will dribbble/threadless staffers pick it?

I think threadless/dribbbbble staff pick the winner. You can always submit them here if they dont win there.

Thanks. I think I'm going to start vectoring that one up first to submit. I have a coffee cup at home I want to source and then the rest should fall right into place.

I adore the first two, the dino one is ok but the first two are awesome. Definitely do them both. Sink or swim is such a cool idea.

Thanks. I'm worried that my bad Typography skills are going to kill or at least wound "Sink or Swim".

Any suggestions on a typography style I could reference?

aw man I suck at typography.

Use the typefaces: Gotham, Din, Akzidenz-Grotesk as a reference. May be easier for you to customize an already existing type then to start from scratch.

I think I might be drunk but I'm digging dino! Also I've never heard anyone reference Gotham typeface before until xiv which is cool cause its my favourite :)

I like the font on coffee rocket but the lines on the cup and rocket are way too thin and even and vectory for me. The sketch version has so much more life and bounce.

I limited it down to black and brown print colors on a creme shirt. What do you think?

I love it now. That's looking seriously good.

I'm a little weirded out by the R of Rocket being visible through the rocket's exaust flames as if they were just the two brown ribbons. I'd perhaps hide that corner of the R and make it feel like a full flame shooting out of the rocket's butt.

celandinestern

also ampersand instead of +? maybe.

I'm not really getting the whole dribbble thing, but then I only spent about 3 min on the site.

Thanks. I'll probably end up submitting it here after it is over. Assuming I don't win with that one. So if there is anything I should do to improve any of these designs let me know.

I think threadless/dribbbbble staff pick the winner. You can always submit them here if they dont win there.
