The artwork specifications from Skyline are attached as are the logos for my company (Extendsive) and the two products we sell (XFlow - a CFD - computational fluid dynamics - package) and CivilFEM, a finite element modeling package for civil engineering. Inspiration on the products can be found at http://www.xflowusa.com, http://www.xflowcfd.com, and http://www.civilfem.com. The photo attached was for a rental booth with a plain black backwall. That is what we are changing. I am very open to dialog with the designer selected through the 99Designs process to arrive at a final design and/or to provide additional input as needed, though I am limiting my input in the beginning so as to allow designers more freedom to work.
Feedback given to initial designers is hereby sent to all: suggest use of stock photography to highlight the end products of our customers, that is cars, aircraft, trains, helicopters, bridges, offshore drilling platforms, nuclear power plants, hydro dams, etc. Suggest to ensure consistent use of color palette, where possible, between stock images and graphic fill.
I will accept input on tagline to be used with the Extendsive logo.
Just pretty backgrounds alone will not win this contest.
Prize will be guaranteed.
Vector format files for CivilFEM logo have been added.
