How UsedCardboardBoxes started their button or icon journey

Company name

UsedCardboardBoxes.com

Overview

UsedCardboardBoxes.com (UCB) is looking for a graphic designer (preferably local to LA) to help us upgrade some of the images used on our website and in our literature. We are NOT looking for a new logo or a new "corporate identity." However, we are looking for someone to help us create a new way to portray the used cardboard boxes we sell via our website (see: http://www.UsedCardboardBoxes.com). To learn more about what UCB does and the "look/feel/vibe" of our company, watch this 60-sec video: http://www.usedcardboardboxes.com/s….php?id=75.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

We sell to all types of people that are moving, all across North America. We deliver to any residential address in the US, in 1-2 business days. A majority of our customers are women (mothers, actually). We sell to college students on a budget, to eco-friendly families with homes in Beverly Hills. We need to portray our boxes a quality, clean boxes that people can depend on.

Requirements

A few points to help candidates understand what we need:

1) Since we sell USED boxes, we cannot use photos on our site. We need "lifelike" illustrations.

2) We use three different sized boxes to make up all the our moving kits and stacks on our site. Those sizes are Medium, Large and X-Large.

3) We sell 11 different moving kits on our site, ranging from a "Dorm Room" to a "10 Bedroom/Office". Each of those 11 kits comes in two versions: "Average Joe" or "Pack Rat". Therefore, we really sell 22 different kits. It's important to know that all of our kits consist of a certain amount of only those THREE BOX SIZES (Medium, Large, X-Large) as well as various amounts of FIVE PACKING SUPPLIES (tape, paper, marker, box cutter, tape dispenser).

4) As you can see from our website, we are currently using only ONE image to represent all of our kits (no variation in sizes). This project is to create a "better" way to represent our kits .

5) Although we THINK we want to see illustrations of the moving kits themselves (i.e. illustrations of boxes), we have also considered illustrations of the number of rooms, the size of the house, the number of people moving, etc. Another way to do it is to create some type of grid that shows the supplies you get and the number of each.

Contact me for samples of what we have done already, so you can see what works and what doesn't.
