We are launching a new company focused around social media offerings, and we decided, what better way to come up with our design than using a great Social Media site like 99designs. We are also offering to give some press around our launch and how our design came about, and highlight the winner (giving full credit) in our launch press materials.
We would like a website design, this is totally new, meaning we have no logo, or even a concept. We wanted to be totally open to interpretations of what "Social Conversations" means to a social community. We are also planning to launch a blog at the same time, so if possible, a slight variation for the blog from the website theme would be great to include. This is a blank canvas, and your imagination is the only thing limiting it.
What Social Conversations will be as a company will be an agency totally focused on the ethical way for companies to start conversations with their audiences in different social media environments. We will offer services that range from community building, to social media releases, to training and even photography and video services (production and launch to social outlets).
What's most important about Social Conversations, is that we love social media, adore it. All of the people who are on the team are some sort of "social media junkie" that understands the medium and that it's about the conversations that go on, and how you communicate in those conversations.
We were asked to give some information on what inspires us. Here are three sites, please note the tones are brown on 2 (which we don't want), and those two are religious sites - that is irrelevant to us as well. The "piece" affect seems to us like it might appeal to our audience. The other is a bit more elegant, not as "pieced together". Perhaps a cross between them.
- full website design (including logo)
- if possible slight variation for a blog template (2 or 3 column)
- company name: Social Conversations
- tagline: "helping companies navigate the world of social media"
- navigation (we'll have about main 8-10 links)
- orange as the main color, ok as an accent color
- no use of brown
