Custom Living Solutions (CLS) is the San Francisco Bay Area’s first choice in professional organizing and productivity services. Our clients look to us for the most custom-tailored, functional, and aesthetically pleasing organizing solutions. We strive to make the organizing process fun and enjoyable, and we work with clients to help them live more balanced and effective lives – both at home and at work.
Our services emphasize the completely custom nature of the work we do with clients. We work with clients by offering personalized consultations and needs assessments with individually tailored organizing plans. Follow-up work is customized to meet the needs, goals, budget and availability of each client.
CLS prides itself on being environmentally responsible. We are one of only two professional organizing companies that is currently a Registered Green Business with the City of San Francisco, a rigorous designation.
Clients generally fall into three groups – individuals/couples in residential settings, micro-businesses/home-based businesses, and small/medium sized businesses. CLS’ ideal clients are busy professionals and entrepreneurs who earn more than $150k each year. They are used to paying for services they believe can enhance their work or home lives or make things easier, and are willing to pay more for better service. They see themselves as deserving to live their best lives, and look for services that can help make their best life happen. They feel that getting organized will help them gain more control over their lives (at home or at work) and will help reduce stress and anxiety.
· Entrepreneurs, solopreneurs, small/home office workers, service professionals
· Gender: male and female, 35-55 age range
· Our clients are generally design-savvy, tend to prefer Macs to PCs, definitely notice aesthetics in their interior surroundings as well as in the products they buy and use.
· Many of our clients enjoy mid-century modern design, as well as more clean Scandinavian designs – clean lines, simple and bold colors, etc.
- They won’t buy a Honda, they’ll buy a BMW or Mercedes. They don’t mind paying full price for things or for services, so long as the value is clear.
We are looking for an eBook cover template that matches our logo and clean visual style. In the future, we are planning a number of downloadable products, and ideally this design would be extensible enough that we could swap title, text and images for each new product that we create. Typically, our products will be either a downloadable eBook, downloadable workbook, or something along those lines. A sample title would be "Easy Productivity Tips for Home and Office."
You can see samples of what we have had in the past at http://www.customlivingsolutions.com/products - but again, we are looking for something a bit more sophisticated in design and style. We have had eBook covers created in the past, but they are not as clean/cool as we would like.
Colors should be specified in RGB, Hex, and PMS formats, and we would like the design delivered in Adobe Illustrator, PDF, EPS, GIF and JPEG formats. The design should work at both full-sheet at 8 1/2" x 11" and half-sheet (vertical orientation).
We DO want the design to convey:
Upscale/premium, Cool, Classic, timeless design, Professional, Different from the rest
We do NOT want:
Nothing corny - clip art/cartoon style, etc., Boxes, Containers, Leaves, trees, or other stereotypically “green” elements, Bows, Ties/knots, Any sort of tags, Gradients, Drop shadows or other photoshop filters, Cartoons or “comical” elements, Houses
