Whoever wins this contest will win additional paid work finalizing the icons and info cards that will be added to this visualization! A helpful mockup and full specs for this contest are in the attached PowerPoint - but here is what you need to know now:
What we need first is the development of our "my.SIOP Roadmap" - a fictional island, surrounded by water, made to be a VISUAL REPRESENTATION of the 8 different goals that our members can accomplish on our community website (called my.SIOP). These 8 goals (or, 8 areas of the island) are each valuable in their own way, and as a result, each has its own theme (mountains, beach, etc.). Similar to a theme park map/directory. Our goal is to be detailed but easy on the eyes (fun to look at, but not too much clutter).
Each area on the Roadmap (marked by temporary dashed lines on our slide 1 mock-up attached) has its own TYPE of landscape. The landscape is to be designed by YOU, the artist.
Each area will have a featured type of character (building, billboard, satellite dish, etc.). Each character has already been identified, but needs to be designed by YOU, the artist. This character is part of the theme and helps provide symbolism for the goal.
While the landscape should be colored as they appear in nature, each area’s title and characters should contain a unique color for that area (all 8 areas should have their own color, so that the titles and characters are visually distinct).
The title (name) of the area should be readable, and matching the theme of that landscape. Examples:
--Seek Opportunities (mountains): on a flag at the peak of the mountain
--Share Ideas (highway interchange): on billboard next to highway interchange
-- Find Collaborators (forest): Plank of wood (sign) staked into the ground (like a campsite)
-- Use your creativity for the other 5 areas!
A my.SIOP "power plant" is in center of the island, with power lines leading to each of the 8 areas (we want the user to know that my.SIOP powers/enables each of these 8 goals). A .png of the my.SIOP logo (attached) should be used on the power plant in the middle of the island.
A road/highway is winding along the coast of the island, connecting all 8 areas around the island (we want the user to know that all 8 goals are accessible with the my.SIOP roadmap)
A table containing all specs for the island - in addition to a helpful mock-up - is contained in the PowerPoint slides attached. We look forward to your creativity in helping us bring our vision to life!
