We require the services of a graphic & design professional to design the template used for a new digital signage project we are launching. The digital sign projects aims to serve three purposes for Esse Health:
1. Provide realtime patient workflow feedback/status to Esse Health staff, (40%)
2. Provide non-realtime office performance metrics to Esse Health staff and keep these metrics "front and center", (40%)
3. Provide non-realtime office performance metrics to Esse Health patients as an incentive for the office to continue to provide the highest levels of service (20%)
The digital signs are conveying important business and workflow data points, but we feel strongly that the user base will be more open and accepting of the platform if the presentation of the data makes it feel professional. That's where we feel a 99designs content can help us -- by helping us find a designer who can make the digital signs really stand out.
The digital signs themselves are simply HD televisions powered by small computers acting as web clients. Data points presented on the digital signs themselves are dynamically fetched and passed to the client on every refresh. The digital sign administrator can dynamically change each sign's layout (we have identified a small number of fixed layouts to be selected from) and which data points are presented on the signs themselves. Some fixed data points are simply informational numbers, while others will invoke "thresholds" and will be considered "above average", "average", or "below average". In addition to data points, some signs will display tables. Tables will take up ~4x the space taken for displaying a single data points, and will list (in table format) realtime information about patients currently being cared for.
The winning designer will provide artwork and style sheet that can be integrated in to the digital signage web server in order to realize the design of the designer. This is the first phase of what is expected to be a multi-phase project -- and it is expected that the designer selected as the winner of this contest would also be asked to work with us on the next 2 phases as well.
Some additional detail:
* The digital signs are 1920x1080. No other resolutions matter. Using fixed sizes and positions is perfectly fine.
* There is only one target client browser that will be used to render the digital signs: Midori 0.5.8 on Pidora Linux, running on Raspberry Pi.
* I will attach some (crude) examples and mock-ups I put together to give designers an opportunity to better understand what the digital signs are going to do.
* I will also attach some vector logos marketing provided to us. You can also refer to the company website (http://www.essehealth.com) for more about the company.
* While open to any design ideas, we believe we want to see the company logo/branding in the top left, a server-generated "Welcome to the office of...." message across the top, and the current time in the bottom-right
* On data points that use thresholds, we envision the use of green for "above average" data points, yellow for "Average" data points, red for "Below Average" data points. Very open to deisng ideas on how to best express these "colors" on a per-data point basis.
* We believe the first phase of the digital sign project calls for a sign to be able to display one of three fixed layouts:
** Error condition (no data presented, other than an error message)
** 6 data points
** 2 data points, 1 table
* We believe that future phases of the digital sign project will allow for more administrator flexibility in layout and we may not have fixed layouts
* We can and will make modifications to the server code to output the appropriate HTML to make use of your design.
Thanks so much!
