Contest Brief

Graphic Design for company Logo & Product logo & website Front/Home Page for HUB-EKO - Software Products & Services company.

!!! Coding/programming NOT required.

Unique graphic by an artist expected.

- NO SLIDERS !!! - NO Wordpress Templates or Themes or reproductions

- FLAT STYLE - 3D Minimalist, Original

- 1-2 maximum main colors (pure white not counted so can be in addition) and max 2 - 4 shades/variations for each main color

- Processed background (not real images)

- a far, distant, even very distant but still a member of the Microsoft Metro Styles, logos, start-ups, product pages, etc

- big typography for logos - spacious integrated design not overloaded.

- One font, Segoe UI, (Light, Semilight, etc)

- being my first Start-up, although on a small budget, needs to make an impact.

Page Structure:

S1. Either - scrollable with 3 screens/sections OR one screen with full menu.

S2. Top/main screen 1 contains:
S2a) Navigation Menu -
for scrollable - optional or missing or short 2 links for contact and about
for one screen - 5-7 main menu tabs/titles/etc -
the page structure/design will dictate it so let your imagination work.
S2b). Company Logo - some corner, a small scale compared to the products
S2c). 2-3 areas or spots or columns for the 2 products + services.
Biggest icons/logos/graphics/typography/etc with a short/impact description + "more" and "download" (can be icon instead of text) links.
S2d) Background graphic, technical feeling message, etc in the far distant plane, a structure in the middle plane and the S2C) in the front plane, closest to the user.
Ideally the S2c) has more than one plane so it's flat like 3D on its own, with the more distant plane more technical and the front one business, neat like.
S2e) 1-2 main colors with max 2 shades, variations for each.

S3(scrollable only) Screen 2 - 70% - Bizitator (P2) product more details page with sections for text, screenshots all with titles.
30% - Deploytor (P3) product more details - very brief.
Can be either vertical or horizontal split, it will be responsive anyway so all the columns will show on a mobile display as vertical rows.

S4(scrollable version only Screen 3 - Development services (P4) and footer contact/company details area/ facebook/etc area.

    Hub-Eko Logo -------- ----------- ---------- think about network hubs, modems, switches --------- take it to an abstract stage, minimalize it, get to the core of the idea and make it look like a current style logo - flat, with some 3D -------- look at MS Bing logo, MS Sharepoint 2013, MS Office 365 but process it a little more, they are too abstract ---------- - --------- Google "Hub Icon" and look at images ---------- select what you think might match my requirements and process it, make something new ----------- EKO - LESS important as message but the idea is economical ...
