In August 2017 our company - a digital marketing and design agency - will be marking our 20th anniversary and we are seeking a suite of mainly social media graphics for the occasion.
For this initial contest we are only asking for a Facebook cover design and a Facebook profile picture image to go with it.
We are ultimately seeking the very best designs for a full suite of social media graphics, an email signature graphic and the like. We want somebody with the talent to define the visual style of the 20th anniversary branding by creating an incredible Facebook cover / profile design for this contest, then, once they win the contest, to immediately continue with a 1:1 project to resize / reshape the design for (1) two additional social media channels - Twitter and Linkedin (will be the same as the Facebook one) with both a cover and profile image for each, (2) a small email signature graphic, (3) the design template - header, footer and border - for an A4 paper. This will be professionally printed and included with a gift we give to people. The text (which we ourselves will add to the template you send us) will thank people for their support etc. and (4), optionally, a showreel video if that's something you can also do.
You will get paid extra for the designs specified in (1), (2), (3) and (4) above. As the first three will mainly involve resizing the Facebook designs that has already been created for this contest so they can be used on Twitter and Linkedin, and we already have a professionally designed A4 template that needs the 20th anniversary branding added, this will not involve much extra work. We will pay an additional $150.00 for all of them. In terms of (4), if you are able to create a video for us, which will show 20 photos from the last 20 years, we will pay you extra on top of the additional $150.00 of course.
This means the winner of this contest is GUARANTEED $283.00! This will consist of $133 / £103.00 (this contest) + $150.00 (resizes + add-ons) = $283.00. Hopefully you will make much more on top of this for other designs.
If you've shown enthusiasm and skill, we will also hire you to do the same full suite of graphics to replace the 20th anniversary ones, and many other graphics we and our client's require. We will pay you higher sums for these, because the design for this contest can only be used for a temporary period, whereas all other designs we need will be used long-term.
As the deadline for our anniversary is very soon and we have been let down by other designers over the last several weeks, you MUST be available and have the time to complete the full suite of graphics by 21 July 2017 at the latest. If you won't have time, please do not enter this contest.
