Belly & Beans
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
"Belly & Beans" will be a cosy new retail store (opening may 2015) in a very upscale part of Munich, that will focus on providing high fashion for pregnant women (1st & 2nd hand). It will also incorporate a little café tailored to the audience as well as a „drinks to go“ business since the store is located right next to the entry of the city park.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I need a fashion illustration of a „high class pregnant woman" to be utilized for various causes in my store concept. It could be in the direction of a "Jordi Labanda"-Style person (so a bit "exaggerated" compared to real life; see examples enclosed) and the idea is that this person stands for
- being pregnant
- shopping luxury clothes
- drinking a coffee (or maybe better a smoothie)
- having a good time.
This "person" (your illustration - I will call her "Jo") shall become the key element of my store. In the future I want to utilize her for e.g. promoting wedding dresses, or show her in a winter outfit for winter season etc. or with a group of "her friends" for an event. So I am interested to find a designer for a long-term relation, that provides me (for money of course) with different renders of the same character over time.
The illustration shall be used for
- an interior picture at a wall in my store
- the website
- the shopping paper bags
- „To Go“ accessories (coffee cups, sandwich bags)
- later on for certain campaign „specials“ e.g. „winter time“, „summer time“ or „wedding style“.
The illustration may look a bit like me (that's why I uploaded a picture of myself) - but it's not a "must". The illustration may have the silhouette of the store in the background (see picture uploaded) - but again it is not a must. The "person" can be by herself ... or having a good time with some female friends.
Looking forward to your ideas. But please again - only artists interested in doing this as a first step and then providing me with further iterations over time!
