We are a team of consultants that help clients build and deliver private cloud computing environments to their internal business units.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We are looking for a set of three illustrations that follow a consistent color scheme and share a unified look and feel. Cloud computing technology is complex and we're currently developing a white paper that needs to illustrate multiple complex technology layers in a simple visual way. For each illustration, we've included hand drawn sketches of an idea and examples of other work that we believe helps communicate the concept we're looking for. Designers shouldn't interpret this as a rigid requirements for how the design should look; we're open to all approaches and ideas. If designers use the examples we provide as reference, the finished product should be different enough so as not to impose on any existing designers work that the example was taken from.
Illustration 1 is a simple set of layers that should show depth. Illustration 2 is a more detailed depiction of the components in each technology layer. Illustration 3 is desired as a simplistic, flat, modern process flow, or diagram that depicts how a user chooses his products, features and options. Think luxury automobile brochure...you pick your base model and then whether you want leather seats, navigation system, sport package, etc. We've included sketches to help communicate our goals.
We are VERY responsive to all comments and questions. We're happy to discuss ideas over the telephone as well (at our cost if necessary). We generally promote our contents to guaranteed if we like the direction designers take in their initial submissions. The winning designer may also be asked to support additional illustration work for a website being planned on Squarespace as well as InDesign layout work for the final whitepaper product.
