Our annual report is around the corner. We need a very skilled illustrator/graphic designer to help create the cover for our new annual report entitled: "2015: Proceed With Caution"
In this report, the author is analyzing and real estate market and reporting his finding at an all-day event. The book itself will be 250 pages with 400+ charts. However, the report cover will set the ton and look and feel for the book.
I've attached two previous report covers so you can see the kind of work we're hoping for.
All In or Fold was 2012. We did an original photo shoot and every detail in the picture was symbolic. It won several design awards and was very well received. We had a designer do both the photo shoot and the logo for the report.
California Comeback 2 was designed by someone here on 99designs.com. This was a custom 3-D graphic with design elements.
So...on to the current report title "2015: Proceed With Caution!"
The report will be 8.5in wide by 11in tall and printed in full color (full bleed).The reports are professionally printed and placed in custom-made three-ringed binders. Our covers tend to look more like a magazine cover.
I'm open to original illustrations, 3-D renderings, and even stock photos if they are carefully editing to be unrecognizable and easily copied. A house in the design is not necessary as long as it communicates the theme well graphically. If illustrations are used, we're not looking for overly cartoonish designs or anything that looks like clip art. Think Fortune 500 annual reports.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE no hands with houses in them! I repeat, no hands with houses in them!!! While this is a real estate report, we don't have to be obvious. Please also incorporate our logo into the design.
Design should be high impact yet very professional. Please also select the fonts for the title and incorporate our logo (attached).
