explainer

Just a rough sketch. Feedback would be needed here


                                                                                                            Contest Entry #                                        3
                                     for                                         Explainer graphic image sequence with sign up callout,  for unique web platform internal pages.

    Two more things to keep in mind, 1) Yes to .png image, with no background color. This way the implementation can include several test colors, gradients, opacities, etc. 2) I will want something for the mobile welcome page also, and I would like to try the same graphic set up in a vertical layout. So, it seems smart to keep that in mind as you are configuring the current image. ( I would select this entry and then add a similar value bonus for the vertical version of the explainer image ).

    If you need the Somatica font, while working on a project for me, I can send it to you. That is, if you don't find it online elsewhere as I mentioned. I definitely would like to see the explainer text, at least the larger text, in that font.

    Hex value of color for pantone base:

    Okay, I like it,
    The placement was a bit misfitting without brand colors,
    ( the inner pages have no green in them necessarily, and that is where the banner is going ), so I played a bit with it, I hope you don't mind.

    And this is my rough revision of your image:
    infomashup.com/djntoimgs/contest_entry_3_placement_rough_concept.jpg

    Could you do your refinements as a .png and with slightly stronger shadow ?

      Okay, so I like this :. https://cdn2.f-cdn.com/files/download/118858856/Annotation%202020-08-15%20105844.png. And I would like to see the same layout as the rough sketch original with that nice, and brand matching, rounded edges straight edges note as the message boxes. As for the color, there is a friendly blue that is used commonly and it seems to integrate well for explainer and hints, so if you could use that color, either directly or as a base for a pantone range in Photoshop, that should solve the color integration. I will send the exact hex value of the color. And the font is Somatica, I purchased that in a set of fonts a while back, so I could send it to you. Although it may well be legitimately free somewhere by now.

      Also as in the link I sent, I like the idea of an intro text question, "what is Infomashup?" Or something to introduce the conversation the two characters you drew are having. I love that it is a conversation. It really brings the mood right to a friendly, helpful level of exchange, naturally.

    Wow Louis!
    You got the concept down ! I love it.

    And I like the "rough" style too.
    What would you change if you were to 'refine' it?

    Also, I will definitely choose this entry.

    Here, I am not sure if you are aware, a contest holder can choose more than one entry, and pay for the second, third, etc. So, I will select this image, regardless of any competitors.

      One thought,
      If I gave you permission to use brand logo, and to add in some official branding from the site, how do you think you would do that.

      I ask this because, I placed the image, and it seems to lack an aspect of integration.

      Hi, thanks for reviewing my entry. I'm glad you like it,

      Here was the idea I had in mind for a vector based picture:
      https://cdn2.f-cdn.com/files/download/118858856/Annotation%202020-08-15%20105844.png

      If you like the rough style, I could try to make it with the same art style as these two images:
      https://cdn6.f-cdn.com/files/download/118063291/05%20dragons2.png
      https://cdn2.f-cdn.com/files/download/118860785/Annotation%202020-08-11%20175457.png

      If I were to refine my sketch, I would definitely straighten out lines and use an actual font for the text.

      Concerning the lack of integration, I think that the Info mashup logo could look quite nice in the bottom right corner.
      Another way to increase integration would be to use the same font as used on the website (the one with the rounded edges)
