We are just in the beginning to start an online shop and hopefully some pop up stores in fashion branche. Eastbound will be fair trade, eco certified cotton, self designed stuff how we like it in form and style and with printings whose meanings we would like to spread. We will work together with ukraine artists and design performer for creating our printings on Shirts, Hoodies, Zippers .. Etc.
Our hope will be, that we can express on a "art-way" some for us important messages. But we don’t want to be obvious or fingerpointing-like, we just like to create art and desings that are nice and colourful, but still if you watch it in detail you can find a small message (e.g. be more friendly and helpful to each other, spend time with giving not taking, take some time per day without mobile phone, smile and be greatful, remind yourself that health it not given forever, be friendly to our environment and animals … these only as examples)
We would like to be friendly warm to all our partners. We work together with families in brasil to support lokal economy, we donate some money for ukraine children and we like to support some aninmal stations in germany.
For our logo:
Our logo should be able to print on cotton. So too much details are maybe difficult for printing. We like the sun and an eye. Sun for us stands for warm, bright, life giving atmosphere. With the sun the new day will start, sunrise at the east, bright smile of kids at a sunny day swimming in the sea….
We like the eye as a symbol of "be open minded", have your eyes open for the nice, little things in life, ask yourself if you see something with your eyes, "what else could it mean", its not always as it seems to be. Eye stands for us for be inside yourself and reflect your inside and try to improve continously little by little…
So, if we had the name eastbound, a sun or part of it and/or and eye on it, that would be great.
But we are also open minded. We just wanted to describe with the text above how we feel. If you see eastbound.de in a different way and you would like to propose something different, we will be also very happy.
We are not convinced of any connection of sailing stuff and we would also like to avoid needles or scissors.
About colours we like a bright blue and warm yellow. Anyway we think you guys start always first with black only and we like that too.
We like to express with our logo type some peaceful, harmonic and friendly brand. Like almolst everybody we believe ;-)
Eastbound, maybe as little background. We come from the eastern part of germany and from eastern part of ukraine. We like the east because east for us means calmness, special atmosphere, new day. Bound for connection, bounding, being friendly to each other. So that’s why we came to eastbound, knowing, that the translation is something different but even here, we were working in travel industry so far and facing eastbound we met always nice and welcoming people.
We would be interested to get:
• info / business card
• Facebook cover
