We’re a cutting-edge social media company. As such, we want a cutting-edge, “Web 2.0” design that will be clean, easy on the eyes, uncluttered (don’t be afraid of negative space), and appealing to business-minded individuals.
Color scheme, logo, and everything you see on the current Tweetmatix.com are fair game to change. While we do like our current logo, we’re not opposed to change (ie: keep it if you can work it into your design, change it if you want). We don’t want to restrict creativity.
The only requirements we have in any new logo are:
2) 2 or 3 color max
3) Solid colors only - No gradients
Use little to no stock photography. If it’s cookie-cutter, it will be eliminated.
The content which exists on the dashboard (screenshot included) will remain the same. We are looking for a home-page design which incorporates the text elements which we have and a header/footer for interior pages.
The dashboard elements may be modified to correlate with the larger design (colors, feel, etc), but basic structure will remain intact. This relates to the dashboard only. All other pages are fair game and open to creativity.
Some sites we like to use for inspiration are:
http://basecamphq.com/ (although almost too cluttered with text)
At the end of the contest, artist will provide files in layered .png format, Adobe Illustrator 10 layered vector images
