All the things you must know before designing & submiting:
It’s the most important requirement for your design. So use all your imagination to create something unique, never seen before. Even if you’ re not sure of your idea, a small research on the internet will clear things up.
A good design always highlights the idea, so do your best work. Use a maximum of 8 colors, so that your design is compatible with all our printing methods. Avoid photographic elements, gradients and common visual effects. Use lettering (if necessary) preferably in English-Latin. Always work in natural size and high resolution (21x30 cm - 300dpi). Even if you’re not absolutely sure about your technique or not experienced in designing, we are here to help you!
Copyright is a very important case in designing. Your design must be an original work in every way. If your idea comes from an existing subject, make sure you won’t use any of the original artwork, logos or illustrated characters. Avoid using or modifying Brand Names, unless you’re intending to redesign them completely. In any case, the already existing design of Tokotoukan, are the best example of how you should handle your ideas.
Tokotoukan designs are mainly based on humour, with no intention of offending. Make sure your designs keep those standards.
In order to keep submitting and choosing proccess working correctly, we require your cooperation in all levels. Please make sure your design meets all technical requirements. Submit only by using our templates. If selected, the designer must give all the needed extra information (description, tags etc.) or even more, be willing to modify the design if requested by the Tokotoukan creative team.
