Brand identity for a salt company

Currently in the process of launching a business selling a particular kind of salt from South America. Selling this product is going to be 80% the brand so we need to have one of the strongest and most unique brands out there as we have to change consumer perception of salt. Everything you see current salt companies doing, we want you to consider doing the opposite – nothing is off-limits. We’d like the brand and designs to have an earthy/sustainable, yet modern vibe to it that you’d see go with more higher-end, expensive products.

Designer(s) to create city inspired t-shirt designs

Designers to create T-shirt designs representing New York City, Los Angeles, and Miami. I am not looking for cheesy tourist designs but rather designs that someone from those cities would wear to “represent”. Cues could come from famous landmarks, skylines, personalities, culture, arts, entertainment, architecture etc related to those cities, but without being tourist tees. Designs can be non-traditional, vintage, edgy, or any number of styles, what is most important is that these designs be something that someone could wear to represent their city and would not feel out of place wearing daily to a restaurant, club, night out, or just around town.

Our MMA promotion is currently seeking a designer to create merch for us (a variety of 2-3 each), mainly t-shirts, sweatshirts, and possibly a hat. We are looking to stand out from other promotions (MMA merch is EXTREMELY boxed in and is so typically generic; we don’t want that), so anyone who has experience creating merch for athletic apparels or even bands, we’re interested in you. We’re hoping to launch our POD online store over the next two months and will be selling your designs at every event as well. There’s a huge demand from our fans for merch, so we want to deliver something soon.
