Before you start reading: The briefing with the same information can also be found in this google doc file (maybe this is more convenient for you to read)... https://goo.gl/9uIDMq GOAL OF THE ILLUSTRATION ------------------------------------- For our new website design, we need a fun & cool illustration from the outdoor environment of our snack bar including 10-14 objects that will be used as links. This illustration will the basis for a new website design. After the illustration is finished, we will take the winning illustration and start a new web design contest @ 99designs with it. We imagine that the illustration should be in cartoon style, please see the examples we provide in chapter "Styleguide". But you are free to try your own style. It's just important that the illustration needs to look professional. OBJECTS TO BE PLACED IN ILLUSTRATION ------------------------------------------------------- For most objects we provide one or multiple screenshots (you can see them, using the printscr.com links). If those images are not enough, you an find more images here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/k6je6ck59dt1t1z/AAAUDii2asM4dkizJ4v-FU5oa?dl=0 Or if you don’t want to open all of the single printscr.com links, find an overview with all images here: http://prntscr.com/dhl662 Objects are sort by priority. -> SNACK BAR: http://prntscr.com/dfwtkn http://prntscr.com/dhaf5e http://prntscr.com/dfx0ig -> PASSENGER SHIP: http://prntscr.com/dfwtz7 (the name of the boat is “MS Seestern”) -> PEDALOS & MOTOR BOATS: http://prntscr.com/defuvp http://prntscr.com/dfwvig -> MENU CARD: http://prntscr.com/dfx1kp -> HIGHLIGHTS: We need to be able to display some actual highlights in the illustration.

If possible, we also want the optional objects in the illustration, but this is depending if you think it will look nice or not. Because we don’t want to overload the illustration. SKETCHES ------------- A rough wireframe sketch about the entire scenery you can find attached. This must not be accurate. You can use your own positioning. OVERVIEW / LANDSCAPE OF THE ENVIRONMENT ---------------------------------------------------------------- If you click on this link, you will find a 360° view from our snack bar (Google Street View): https://goo.gl/qX58Wo This is important, because the illustration needs to have some recognition to the real environment. In the background, there are some Swiss mountains. You can also find an image from the perspective of our snack bar in the attachments of the contest. STYLEGUIDE: THE STYLE WE LIKE -------------------------------------------- Here are 2 links with the illustration style that we like: http://www.twistanddrink.com http://mailboxing.com Some keywords that describe the style that we like: Cartoon, comic, fun, cool, young, modern IMPORTANT: Characterization! Some objects, we would like to be illustrated as characters / mascots. See our logo (made at 99designs :) in the attachment, where we also have a cartoon style and foods are displayed as mascots. The following objects need to be characterized. -> Passenger ship -> Boats -> Snack automat / Vending Machine The following objects are optional to display as characters / mascots: -> Menu card -> Snack bar Just a very rough sketch, how we imagine the characterization (of course you can use your own ideas): http://prntscr.com/dghx7i
-> Delivery: Dimension of the illustration should be something suitable for web design like 1920x1080. Finally, we need a structured and layered PSD file, easy to edit. If possible, llustration needs to be vector based. If you can’t vectorize it, please mention it in the comment of your design entry. Of course, it will be allowed to you to feature and show your work anywhere you want. -> Rating: In the begining, I’ll try to be very harsh with the star rating. Please don’t be frustrated about a 1 or 2 Star rating, or even a rejected design. Also I'll try to give personal feedback to all designs. What the ratings mean: ***** 5 STARS This is an illustration that is great and will be in final round **** 4 STARS We like the style a lot, but few things are not as we imagine it *** 3 STARS Good work. Right direction. But not yet fully happy with it. ** 2 STARS Some ideas of the illustration work good, but all-in-one, it’s not (yet) exactly what we’re looking for. * 1 STAR Not what we’re looking for. We keep it & maybe think about it later. - REJECTED DESIGN Thank you for participating. But this illustration is definitely not on the right track. Sorry.

Even after having worked with Ira on several projects so far, her creativity, her professionalism, her talent to grasp the customer's needs, her ability to exceed all expectations every single time, and last but not least the joyful conversations proof that she's not only one of the best, she is the best.
