Our company Phinite builds waste management systems for animal farms.
We have developed an innovative "Sludge Drying Wetland" which converts animal manure into a dry product which farmers can sell as fertilizer or solid biomass fuel. This is useful to farmers as it saves them money disposing of the final product, and has benefits for the environment.
We require a brochure to be developed to communicate our product with our customers.
Our customers are farmers - so they want to see lots of images to explain things, and relatively little text.
We have developed an outline of the brochure in the attachments. This is my impression of what needs to be done on each page:
Overall: uniform theme communicating - Professionalism and high quality. Color scheme to match all pages. No "text heavy" sections. All word sections to be broken up as much as possible.
Page 1 - This will be a large image of our system photoshopped into a photo of a farm. There will be a short description of what we do in it. We are getting this image made.
Page 2 - this will be how we say in general terms what we do. To include a photo (already provided).
Page 3 - This photo explains the techncial reasons our system is better. This page includes 2 images.
- Image 1 - is a bar graph showing the moisture and solids content of manure. We require you to remake this image to fit the color scheme and professional theme of the brochure.
- Image 2 - is a map showing the locations of farms in North Carolina, with different colored dots. We require some minor editing of this image (tidying up the legend) and making it fit with the theme of the page.
Page 4 - This is where we show farmers what our product does. It has three images:
Image 1 - This is a view of our sludge drying wetland showing the different parts and layers. We provide this image - you have to make it fit with the theme of the page.
Image 2 - This is a photo of dry sludge. You have to make it fit with the theme of the page.
Image 3 - This is an image of burning sludge. You have to make it fit with the theme of the page.
Page 5 - This page is where we tell farmers about our company and why we're good at what we do. It has some images (not embedded in the example doc - I will add them as attachments). You will not have to edit the images, just make them fit the theme of the page. I'd like you to propose a page layout design.
Page 6 - This page shows farmers how to do business with us. It has a number of steps (the layout of which is to be designed by you, similar to in the examples I send you). It also restates our selling points and includes our contact details.
The overall layout will be a 6 page brochure, which will be folded to suit.
When delivering proofs, please present them in view format originally. As we get closer to finalizing the design, please provide them in the format they will be printed so I can understand how they'll look.
Please show me your portfolio of similar projects done in the past. This is very important.
I would like you to take the design lead based on what I have shown here. In particular, I do not want this to read as a "text heavy" document. It must be visually easy to read while also conveying our points. Every page will be dominated by pictures and the text will be broken up to minimize the number of words on a page. I will edit the copy as necessary to suit that theme - however I will need your input as well to understand how to make it all fit together.
