Software testing you say? Sounds dull right? Not the way we do it!
The brief is to design an engaging and fun ebook (not a book cover) for BugFinders - This ebook is targeted at Ecommerce Decision Makers (Head of Ecommerce, Ecommerce Manager) - to tell them whats going on in their market and why they should implement crowdsourced testing...
The ebook will need to be done in PDF format and needs a cover page and all other subsequent pages designing. Would suggest portrait, as opposed to landscape.
Design guidelines, copy and a number of design visual references are provided, please see attached to brief. So you're simply working from an existing design, making the content come to life!
Once the general template design is approved (in the initial designs/concepts stage) the copy should be set in the template - and there are few sections that will need to be graphically visualised, to make it super easy and fun for the reader to digest.
The design needs to follow the branding of the BugFinders Website - 2 d flat design - but moving the design forward a little - a few new icons and imagery to compliment what we already have.
In the ebook copy doc attached:
> I have highlighted elements of the copy that I feel could be graphically visualised/infographics/pulled out.
> The bits in italics are supposed to stand out from the main body text - perhaps in some kind of lock-up?
> PLEASE NOTE : There are some formatting inconsistencies that came about as a result of copying and pasting text from an old ebook into the new ebook word doc - some bullet points are misaligned, for example, and the spacing often varies. These aren't intentional, and so just ignore them.
As mentioned, I am looking for :
1st stage - The general ebook template design - so you could show me what a couple of pages would look like - perhaps the cover page, and another page where some of the key stats are. I want to see that you have followed the design guidelines and made some of the key stats come to life.
2nd stage - Initial mock ups of each page - specifically looking at the content that needs to be visualised (see copy doc).
3rd stage - final touches/revisions and hopefully a winning piece!
We have a number of ebook/whitepaper and other projects in the pipe-line - so I am hoping to strike up long-term relationship with my finalist.
