What should it look like?
Set in a futuristic like world. Vector retro styled. Looking for stylish retro designs, meaning sharp contrasting angles. Make sure the design is VERY clean. Lay low on the gradients (IF needed only use one or two. Gradients, when printed, don't always look fantastic ).
You've been provided with some inspiration. We're looking for a "ufo" kind of world. Futuristic, sectioned off in different biomes by half-globes appearing like glass.
Keep a very limited and smart design palette. You have been provided with our design palette. You have also been provided with examples of past winners of our contest on 99Designs. Keep the style reminiscent of these, and try to not stray too far from the color palette. Grays are accepted :)
We're going to be set up at a conference soon, and this will be the back-drop of our booth. Meaning it'll be large (think 3 meters wide by 2 meters high)! DON'T make your file this large. Your art should be done in illustrator, so it should be a vector format, so a smaller file, say 12in wide by 8in high should work, and should be scaled to a large form very easily with no complications.
Illustrator. .ai. If you don't know your way around illustrator well, this contest may not be for you.
Bonus points if:
You can fit the UFO from our logo into your environment. :)
