Contest Brief

We are in need of a graphic designer that can create nice graphic overlays for product photography similar to original designs but yet still "new" in appearance.

THE JOB:

We are in need of graphic overlays for product photos that are thematically the same but suit EACH the following platforms and their sizes:

1) Facebook Cover Photo (top wide image) 851px by 315px
2) Facebook/Twitter Profile Picture (square that gets cropped to a circle) 400px by 400px
3) Twitter Profile Cover (top wide image) 1500px by 500px, adjusting for Twitter Cover safe zone)
4) Instagram Post Image (square that stays a square) 1080px by 1080px
5) Instagram "Story" Image (tall thin image) 1080px by 1920px

Designer is required to create GRAPHIC OVERLAYS like those in the samples, that can be uniformly applied to any of many similar artistic photos, and occasionally modified (text) for each photo.

General Theme: Mystery.
Nothing too bright or glaring. Mysterious and inviting curiosity is best.
As we narrow down our preferences, additional details will be listed in project comments - please check before submitting. Thank you.

1) View the SAMPLES in the attached files. (Note: "Old Samples" are mostly "Right Aligned". All Finals from this project must be "Left Aligned")
2) Using the any of the "RAW PHOTOS" in the attached files, CREATE YOUR OWN VERSION OF THE GRAPHIC OVERLAY (stripe & text).
3) Use font attached for main text. Main text should read: "Join the Countdown..." (As seen in Sample 1, 3, and 6).
4) Adjust Photo and Graphic Overlay to export in BOTH "Facebook Cover" and "Instagram Post Image" formats.
5) Upload every submitted photo as a SEPERATE contest entry please. (Uploading all 5 sizes, as 5 entries is welcome.)

    UPDATED "What we've learned" data...

    UPDATED:
    Thing's we've learned in the first 24 hours of submissions:

    1) Ribbon or No-ribbon designs are both ok, but ribbons should have some transparency / fade. Solid opacity isn't working.
    2) Text at angles is always more attractive than level/horizontal. High on the left, low on the right... "down to the right" is best.
    3) Theme is "Mystery", thus excessive details added to the overlays (light flares, sparkles, confetti, additional border decor) works against the image instead of for it. Subtle intrigue is more interesting for this project.
    We want people saying "countdown for what!?" and following along because much seems hidden.
    4) Don't recolor anything in the background/photo. Do not adjust angle of photo.
    5) Keep dice LARGE in frame, similar to samples.
    6) Submission on Facebook or Twitter Cover Photo (wide images) appear more valuable to discern overall style preference. Square versions are secondary (though necessary).

    Thank you.

    Please note:

    All Square images will get cropped by social media profiles to a circle. Text must remain visible inside the circle, with a little clearance. Thank you.

    Thank you everyone in advance for your submissions.
    I can't wait to see what overlays you design that honor the original (as this is the 2nd product launch of it's type).
    We could go for "basically the exact same, only left aligned" or "totally new, and left aligned"

    Let us see what you come up with!
