stephenjen got their new signage by running a design contest:
Create an awesome trade show booth design for Jenco
Check out stephenjen's Signage contest…
Jenco is a 40-year, family-run manufacturer of scientific instruments for measuring water quality. Our products are used in the field by environmental scientists to measure water pollution, in the laboratory by researchers to conduct experiments, in schools for teaching, and installed in manufacturing plants to continuously monitor product quality and safety of production lines. Our instruments are sold exclusively to distributors - businesses that resell our products to individuals, businesses or institutions. In an OEM capacity, we manufacture instruments for other manufacturers in our industry. The audience of the designs of this contest is aimed at merchandiser or product managers of distributors who attend our industry trade show. This attendees are made up of more men than women, largely in 35-50 age group, more conservative than not. Over the past 3 years we have introduced products that are quite unique in our marketplace. For example, a smart, WIFI-enable laboratory meter and a Bluetooth tester that works with smartphone apps, which we will launch at the trade show. Our website: https://www.jencoi.com
What's your vision?
We are looking for trade show booth design, including a popup backdrop and a roll up banner. The winning design will convey an approachable, innovative, 40 year old company, with good use of icons, images and design elements to help communicate our message. We want to stand out and be different, and do it in a tasteful way. *** We started a contest last week that included designs for the backdrop, roll up banner stand and 2 counter covers. Because that was a guaranteed contest and our design manager felt we would get better results if we used two contests to cover the scope of the original contest, he locked the contest before any submissions were received and we split it into 2 contests *** *** We need to have picked a winner and receive files for making the items by 2/20 *** We have a related contest running right now for the counter top covers for the same trade show: http://99d.me/c/exhk To provide a sense of our trade show and what the booths look like: https://www.google.com.tw/search?q=pittcon+trade+show+booth+design&client=safari&rls=en&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwie2sS5goDSAhVGlZQKHQRMAx0Q\_AUICCgB&biw=1440&bih=784#imgrc=\_ In terms of style, I want to say a clean, bold design with impactful product and or application photos can work well for this design. For better or for worse, we typically see a lot of blue and water themes. The design should take some cues from version 1.0 of our new website, https://www.jencoi.com. Some designs inspirations, but I hesitated to provide this because these may or may not work at all for this project: - https://www.behance.net/gallery/19197155/Telit-Internet-of-Things - http://www.ibm.com/us-en/?lnk=m - https://slack.com - https://nest.com - https://www.pinterest.com/pin/223491200234889272/ - https://www.ibm.com/cloud-computing/bluemix/runtimes?lnk=mn - https://graphicriver.net/item/corporate-rollup-banners/12598283?s_rank=17 (yes, this is a $6 template...) - more coming... Our proposed floor plan for the show is attached. The carpet we use will be a dark gray color. All resolutions and colors needs to be print-ready. Deliverables include AI, PS, Affinity or Sketch files used to create the designs plus print-ready PDF. ## Popup backdrop The main goal with the popup backdrop is to give a general idea of what we do and what we’re about, which can be done via text and visual cue. This backdrop is more likely to stay the same from show to show and will reuse for 3 years or so. Visible area: 96"W x 89”H Template: https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/display-templates/PDF/8ft+EZ+Tube+Striaght.pdf What this type of product looks like (8 ft. EZ Tube Display, not as design guideline): http://exponetusa.com/ftd-8-straight-single-sided-graphic-only/ Content, main message: - 40-Years - Water Quality Instruments That Power Breakthroughs Content, supporting points: - Complete Product Line - Smart and App-Enabled Instruments - OEM Services Content, other: - Our logo We can provide representative images for our product line. For smart instruments, what we’re talking about is Bluetooth connectivity, WIFI connectivity, great user experience and using apps to enhance our product’s functionality. For OEM services, mainly it’s the services we provide to build custom products for other brands - our experience R&D team, production, order fulfillment and user support. ## Banner Stand The main goal with the banner stand is to call attention to something new or something promotional, in this case it is our new testers. This banner stand is likely specific to this particular trade show. Logo can be up higher, but Key elements needs to be in the middle third section and up.

Our show is early March, so ideally we want to pick a winner by 2/19, leaving us enough time to have the items made and shipped. I'll do my best to give timely feedback and answers to questions, butI'm currently in Asia, please mind the time difference.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their signage.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
stephenjen collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
