    I agree with KemingMatters. Maybe you could just head on over the Behance.com, look through the portfolios, find some freelancers with the styles you like, then contact them.

    I'm assuming that you're referring to the size of headlines that might span multiple columns, right?

    If so, common sense might seem to be the rule. I mean, you're not going to squeeze a 60-point...

    I'd normally be inclined to do the same. In this case, though, the name is so visually specific that failing to pick up on the visual cues would risk a disconnect.

    Similarly, a restaurant...

    I would say so, what works well spanning five columns isn't going to work well spanning one.

    The colour choice and softness of the shapes makes it seem like it's geared only to women. When combined with the name it almost has a pharmaceutical vibe to it.

    ironically, the colour choices...

  • Vintage illustrations

    I'm looking for some of those old-skool vintage illustrations that you used to see back in the day for a project I am working on. Anything of the romantic nature is preferred.

    Thankfully I have attached an image of something similar to the look I am seeking because my descriptive nature has failed me today, lol.

    And if anyone knows the exact term, other than "vintage" so I can search for it online, that would be great.

    Thanks in advance...

    Have you checked out any of the Dover 'clip art' publications? I gotta say though, I don't remember any quite this date-ish.

    ^that image would be vintage (looks like the illustration work from the old Reader books from my grade school days) – with the exception of the silly flourish.

    There may be some online resources I could dig up but you would probably have to pay $.

      Aren't all the Dover collections black and white? I could be wrong...

        yea, I'd definitely call it vintage. And if you do a quick search for the Dick and Jane and/or See Spot Run books, you'll see that the artwork (same style) is also referred to as vintage.
        Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time.

          As much as it probably shouldn't be labelled this way, I suspect you'll find appropriate images searching with "retro" as well as "vintage".
          at best my spelling *and grammar* is crap and at worst it are be carp

              It looks like something Dover might carry. Dover's been moving into color lately. You can go to their website and sign up for free samples.

                A quick search for 'Vintage Illustration' at istockphoto returns over 27,000 images.

                I waded through the first 10 pages but didn't find anything like your example, but it may be worth trying with a few more keywords to narrow down the results?

                  it reminds me of those paper cut out things you get - like stickers but not sticky, I don't have a clue what they're called so probably not much help!
