Everyone loves a little humor in their lives. So, we’re looking to create some cartoons about ‘the life of an entrepreneur’. These will be sent out as part of our marketing material and will be seen by small & medium size business owners.
***WE WILL BE CHOOSING 8 - 10 WINNERS FOR THIS CONTEST***
We already have the wording for the cartoons, and need accompanying illustrations. Here are a few styles we like:
– Ecards: these are usually witty, sharp, and a little bit sarcastic
– Memes: these usually include a pretty obvious photo/punchline and are a little more in-your-face funny
– New Yorker style cartoons: these are a bit more subtle, and provide some sort of social commentary while also still being funny
We’ve included some examples of each type in the brief. (A couple of the examples include the wording we wrote – feel free to play off the ideas there, but keep in mind we’re looking for unique illustrations!)
Here are the quotes we want illustrated. Feel free to pick your favorite (or favorites!) and create an illustration in whatever style you prefer. We want to loosely try for the above styles, but at the same time, we're hoping for your unique, artistic flair. Keep in mind the humor behind a lot of these is the assumption that the entrepreneur works from home and/or remotely :)
(in no particular order)
1. You hear “pitch.” You open PowerPoint. You are a terrible Little League coach.
2. Expense all the things!
3. Client wants to meet in person. I must venture out of my cave.
4. You're "the Uber of" something? Eye Roll.
5. You have your home office, I have mine.
6. Your social media team is on-point. At least until bedtime. (e.g. ‘social media team’ is your toddler)
7. $15 in profit?! OOOOOH, let's book that Hawaiian vacation!
8. SMB owner may be a little late today. The commute got hairy. (e.g. their cat is sitting on their laptop, or something similar)
As always, please keep in mind that stock is NOT allowed in illustrations contests – this includes stock images, clip art, traced photos, etc. For a quick refresher, see:
Excited to see your designs!
