PROJECT EXTENDED DUE TO OUR IGNORANCE! Please read the ENTIRE brief and consider participating!
REVISED - the total contest amount is for:
- The front and back covers
- TWO full spreads
We are developing a 24-page catalog showcasing our many coins and collectibles to prospective wholesale and retail customers. The contest winner will THEN be invited to create, in similar format, the remaining (18) eighteen pages of the catalog in a PRIVATE project.
In very simple terms, our goal is to make something as nice as (or nicer than):
We are a private manufacturer of coins and collectibles. All of our products tell a story. We want to showcase the products and shortened snips of the stories in the catalog, along with the basic specifications for each product. Each product has its own look, feel and style, so the catalog can feel quite different from one page to the next. However, the whole catalog should be tied together nicely with common typefaces, colors, badges, call-outs, and various layout options, so that it doesn't look like we just pasted together all of our various brochure PDF's to make one BIG catalog.
Qualifying submissions MUST include:
1) Front and back covers, laid out in a single spread
2) Frazetta Coins two-page spread
3) Silver Hobo Nickels two-page spread
I have selected these three components so that you can show off the most important aspect of this project - a flexible design that allows us to independently brand each page/ spread/ section/ product line, while maintaining a common look & feel throughout the catalog.
Attached you can find the hand-drawn horrible layout I propose for the pages required. They're not great, and if you have questions about it, just let me know. I also attached the INDIVIDUAL brochures we created for the two product lines - Frazetta & Silver Hobo Nickels. Again, you can see the unique identity that the two product lines have - your goal is to bring them together in a single catalog. Also attached our the new logos we've developed in a recent contest on this site.
Here is a link to our hi-res production assets:

YOUR GOAL is to create something similar, but better, than the above catalog link with OUR products. Please keep in mind that we have MANY different products, so this catalog is to showcase our MANY brands, not just one single brand.
Winner will be selected based on demonstrating your ability to adhere to the requirements of this project while producing something that will appeal to our audience - precious metals dealers and collectors.
Then, we will invite you to create the remaining 18 pages (9 spreads) in a private project. We can negotiate a fair price once the contest is satisfactorily completed.
Please let us know if you have any questions, good luck & HAVE FUN!
23-Jun: The catalog title is flexible, but my idea is LEGENDS and the subtitle can be "forged from the fires of imagination". Both of these are flexible, and if you have a better idea, go for it!
