How Smallakin started their t-shirt journey

Summary

Snowboard/skateboard inspired graphics. See http://www.shop.akinz.com for ideas about similar designs.

Hand illustration and Cartoon style images welcome, bright colors, graphic designs. Can use grunge-style, but no skulls. Colors should be limited to 2 or 3 colors per shirt.

I will only pick one winner, but if there are multiple shirts I like, they may get picked at an additional $25 per design. Chosen designs will also get a shirt printed with their design.

Company name

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

Snowboard/Wakeboard/Skateboard inspired designs. Bright colors are a plus, but would like to see some muted color options also. Looking for mens and womens designs or something that could be unisex. Design for a tank top (womens only) or a tee.
You can check out my previous designs at http://www.shop.akinz.com to get a feel for my clothing line style. Other companies to use for inspiration? http://www.nikitaclothing.com http://www.billabong.com http://www.hurley.com http://www.volcom.com
Absolutely NO free brushes or vectors used in these designs. Any images must be your own creation. I want 100% original designs. I am a designer also so I will be able to tell and your design will not be selected. I currently design all the shirts, but don't have time to brainstorm since I'm too busy doing other freelance to pay the bills. Therefore, I'm spreading the love to other designers out there.

Wants

- must say Akinz somewhere on the shirt, doesn't have to be prominent. I actually think it is cooler when it is worked into the design somehow- I like interesting design placements if it is suitable to the design.- design needs to be created in photoshop at 300 dpi or preferable in illustrator as full vectors- Something unique and interesting

Don't want

- No Skulls - absolutely NO free vectors used not too much over hem printing
