Contest Brief

I need a layout for my short (5-10 pages) Business PDF-document. The document is about marketing (5 steps to start social media marketing for small businesses).

The content is in Finnish, but I have made it easy for you to format it by explaining everything in the provided attachment [Freelancer_briefing_PDF content].

Style that I'm looking for (NOTE these are competing companies, don't use exact same style):

Style example 1: I like this design (If you can use similar style there's a very high chance to win)
Style example 2: This is a lot more simple

Example PDF 1: This is my favorite
Example PDF2: Same company, more simple
Example PDF 3: Very simple, but would suffice

As you can see, the common theme is White + Dark combination with a few eye-catching main colors and some simple illustrations. The layout and the illustrations don't need to be complicated. Some keywords to describe the brand are "playful, simple, fruity, chill, approachable, easy to understand".

What the end result should be:
An editable source document where I can edit the text and maybe move around some parts if I need to and later export to PDF (Adobe files, Power Point etc.). Preferred size is A4 vertical or horizontal (so it can be printed easily, although this is mainly for online use so don't worry about print quality).

Any illustrations used should be provided (either as transparent PNG files or source file that you used i.e. Photoshop, Illustrator, PowerPoint, Word etc.).
Provide the used color #hex codes and identify fonts (font files not needed, use common fonts only).

Some more tips:
The colors and fonts are not as important since they can be changed easily. The layout, text placement and "illustrations" are important, the content will be edited and changed in the source file.

Looking to get more similar graphics work done in the future so appreciate good communication for more co-working. Thanks!

      Hi! Sorry there is no website I'm still working on it. So there are no logos or website, I try to show the preferred style in the example PDFs ( #1 and #2 I think are the style to go for).

      I like this entry, I understand it is preset template, but I have a lot of options to create a good layout by mixing different slides and writing the contents etc. myself.

      I would prefer that this is in A4 vertical size, not presentation slides.

      Hi, thanks for your question. Sorry for unclear briefing, I have not briefed this type of project before.
      If you look at Example PDF 1 page 4, this is what I mean by "layout". Imagine you take all the text and images out, only the layout will be left and I can fill in text to the left/right side, images, other graphics etc. later by myself. So even if there is no content, you can just create a colorful layout and fill it with Lorem ipsum -text.

      Finished product should be only 1 style of layout (fonts, colors, placement

      Hi, thanks for your question. I will always try to answer clearly.

      There will not be blank pages in the finished product, BUT you can create blank pages for me to fill content later.

      If you look at Example PDF 1 page 4, this is what I mean. Imagine you take all the text and images out, only the layout will be left and I can fill in text boxes to the left side, images on the right, other graphics etc. later.
