krowe1 got their new postcard, flyer or print by running a design contest:
Create a clean, modern, one page sell sheet for our cool new StakWood wall product!
Check out krowe1's Postcard, flyer or print contest…
The organization is WoodRight Forest Products - a company that markets unique hardwood building products. The product to be highlighted in this marketing / sales sheet is Stakwood - an interlocking wood interior wall covering system of varying thicknesses, widths, and colors which has the texture and visual interest of stacked stone, but the natural warmth and character of real wood. The target audience for this marketing / sales sheet is building product retailers and distributors. The purpose of this sheet is to create interest in Stakwood so that they will consider carrying it their stores, or offering it to their customers.
What's your vision?
We need a marketing / sales sheet - a one page, front and back marketing piece, able to be printed on standard 8-1/2" x 11" (216mm x 279mm) sized paper. We want to be able to switch out pictures and revise text as needed because our final, professional photography hasn't been completed. Attached are photos to use for the design contest. Feel free to optimize them in any way (crop, enhance, etc.) for use in this design. We want to really highlight the texture (differences in thicknesses and widths), colors (different species of wood), and joinery (the tongue-and-groove joints where the boards lock together). If any stock photography is used, please either own the rights to the photo(s) used, or contact me and let me know if there are photos that we would need to buy. We want the overall feel to be very fresh, clean, bright, and modern (think Apple Inc.), but also relaxed and calm looking. We don't want it to appear too corporate and stiff. We also don't want too many bright colors without sufficient white space so that the design doesn't appear too loud, garish, busy or overdone. Please do include white space and feel free to include the the green and orange from the WoodRight Forest Products logo and the silver / grey and orange from the StakWood logo to tie things together. The most unique thing about the product is the aesthetics or look, so product and installation photos should be prominent in the design - especially on the front page. The front page should also feature a prominent StakWood logo. The front page will also have most of the compelling feature text. The back page will highlight more of the specific technical information such as pallet size, box count, box size and weight, prices, etc.. All of these items should also remain easily editable.
The text content for the marketing / sales sheet is attached in both Word (.doc) and .pdf formats (file name: "StakWood Sell Sheet Copy REV 15019"). It is intended to provide the text content only, not formatting! The creative formatting of the text and photo selection is up to you. The text content, however, is arranged in order of priority, so we would like to include as much of the upper text as possible on the front page (at least include the text through the "HIDDEN FASTENERS, HIDDEN STRENGTH" section), while still remaining very legible, and not becoming too busy or crowded looking. If using all of the text shown on the first page of the attached document makes the front look too crowded or busy, or doesn't leave enough room for pictures, you can put the last two sections on the back side. We don't want more than two or three pictures on each page though, as it should look like a picture collage. Please use the section or paragraph headings provided (the bold, large font, all caps text before each paragraph) before its corresponding paragraph. The StakWood logo should appear at the top of the front page and also on the back page. In small dark letters beneath each StakWood logo, "Patend Pending" should be included. Also, on each page, the first time the words or logo for "StakWood", "StakLok", or "Transform Your Space" is used, they should have a small trademark symbol (TM) immediately following it to the upper right of the word. Subsequent usage of those words do not need the trademark symbol. The bottom of both pages should include our call to action justified to the right on the first page and centered on the back: LEARN MORE ABOUT TRANSFORMING SPACES WITH STAKWOOD By Visiting www.stak-wood.com or Calling 855.WOODRIGHT (855.966.3744) If anything is unclear or if you have questions, please don't hesitate to message me. I am typically more involved and provide more feedback than most CHs and will let you know if you are on track, and give you ideas if they come to me. Admittedly, since I am not a designer, I rely on your creativity. Ratings: my ratings are not static or fixed. You may see that your rating changes over time as new entries are submitted. I use the star rating system to judge designs relative to each other. If your rating goes down during the contest, it means that a new design has been submitted that I like better. If I award you 1 star it means that I have seen your design, but am looking for something different. I will typically award 1-3 stars at the beginning and may go up to 4 stars if a design is really great and getting very close to where we want to be. I won't award 5 stars until a design(s) is really a contender for winning the contest. However, the contest isn't over until a winner is chosen. Finally, we are really on a quick timeline with this project, so I may pick a winner before the "finals". Thanks, have fun, and good luck! I can't wait to see your designs!
