Our target audience consists of young, active social media users between the ages of 17-32.
In our app/website, we’ve used rounded corners, round profile pictures… We’re not thinking of using a sharp design here.
Goal: It should be appealing to the crowd, energetic and perhaps funny at the same time.
No limits, this design project is totally customizable according to your tastes. (You’re the artist!) We want a cover that stops people in their tracks. Something artsy, perhaps. We’re looking for a fun, potentially bright, happy cover for our Facebook page.
BreakMates is an upcoming social network where members will have access to the best way to make plans with groups of friends. We’re going to help people make the most of their available time, and bring them to a new social level.
We will be trying to create a brand that is quite comedic, so perhaps a comedic theme could be fun, too.
Our brand colour is #FFCC00, or gold. So use of this is recommended, but not mandatory.
Since we're building an app, we think having a screenshot would be helpful. Please make sure to include the iphone mockup on the cover somewhere (don't worry, we will add the final screenshot later).
We have a few colours on our site that may be chosen to personalize a member’s account.
Blue: Red:52 Green:152 Blue: 219
Red: Red:231 Green: 76 Blue 60
Green: Red:39 Green: 174 Blue: 96
Dark red: Red:192 Green: 57 Blue: 43
Purple: Red:142 Green: 68 Blue: 173
However, we do not want to limit your creativity to these colours, so by all means, go wild with this project.
We use the following fonts throughout our app/website: Google Source Sans Pro & the Lato family of fonts. The use of these fonts is recommended, but not mandatory.
Please see the examples of cover photos we like.
Final format must be at least 851w*315h.
If you're thinking of creating a design similar to the examples provided, you can find icons here: http://www.flaticon.com/ or http://fortawesome.github.io/Font-Awesome/icons/
Please save the source of all icons used so that we can make sure they're free to use! If your design is chosen as the winner, we will require a document listing all of the links to each icon used, so that we can give proper attribution, if the case.
