Audience Business leaders; Fortune 500-1000 executives to individual managers at companies and individual small companies. Brand Look and Feel Clean Trusted Professional, approachable, inspiring, modern, connected (as in we are all digitally connected through the gig economy) Our logo is attached (we always use it in black and white)
What's your vision?
Cover: We would like the cover composition of our report to represent the human cloud, but not be cartoonish (you'll see an example of placeholder clip art in our attachment, and that is too cartoonish). We’d like it to be sleek, sophisticated, global, yet accessible. The human cloud is the group of workers from the “gig economy” that live all over the world and are accessible through digital connection. Some ideas are to include the organizations that crowdsource, the cloud, the earth/globe, and the people in the gig economy. We are open to other concepts that represent connection within the human cloud/gig economy, crowdsourcing, and organizations. We need a single-page format, 8.5” x 11” designed in magazine-style. Delivery: Design to be delivered in In Design and ability to transfer design document to us. Final product will be a downloadable PDF.
Here are the elements that need to be on the cover. Please see attachments for color palette and templates and company logos: Masthead: OAQ (Open Assembly Quarterly) Tagline: Co-creating the future of work. Issue: Fall 2018 Cover line: State of Crowdsourcing Report Logos: OA [include logo] In partnership with Topcoder [include logo] We've given a lot of instruction, but would love to see your unique vision! We are open to an illustration, photo montage, one simple image, etc. We plan to repeat elements from the cover throughout the inside pages.

And then… they selected a winner!
Machu was open to feedback and we were very satisfied with his work. At times the process could have been a bit faster, but it was understandable considering the amount of requested changes.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
