stephenjen got their new signage by running a design contest:
Think you can dress up cheap rental counters for a trade show? Do it in this contest!
Check out stephenjen's Signage contest…
Jenco is a 40-year, family-run manufacturer of scientific instruments for measuring water quality. Our products are used in the field by environmental scientists to measure water pollution, in the laboratory by researchers to conduct experiments, in schools for teaching, and installed in manufacturing plants to continuously monitor product quality and safety of production lines. Our instruments are sold exclusively to distributors - businesses that resell our products to individuals, businesses or institutions. In an OEM capacity, we manufacture instruments for other manufacturers in our industry. The audience of the designs of this contest is aimed at merchandiser or product managers of distributors who attend our industry trade show. This attendees are made up of more men than women, largely in 35-50 age group, more conservative than not. Over the past 3 years we have introduced products that are quite unique in our marketplace. For example, a smart, WIFI-enable laboratory meter and a Bluetooth tester that works with smartphone apps, which we will launch at the trade show. Our website: https://www.jencoi.com
What's your vision?
We are renting 2 trade show counters and need designs for their covers. These counters are to go with the booth backdrop and roll up banner stand designs of this currently running project http://99d.me/c/exhg . *** We started a contest last week that included designs for the backdrop, roll up banner stand and 2 counter covers. Because that was a guaranteed contest and our design manager felt we would get better results if we used two contests to cover the scope of the original contest, he locked the contest before any submissions were received and we split it into 2 contests *** *** We need to have picked a winner and receive files for making the items by 2/20 *** The winning design will convey an approachable, innovative, 40 year old company, with good use of icons, images and design elements to help communicate our message. We want to stand out and be different, and do it in a tasteful way. To provide a sense of our trade show and what the booths look like: https://www.google.com.tw/search?q=pittcon+trade+show+booth+design&client=safari&rls=en&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwie2sS5goDSAhVGlZQKHQRMAx0Q\_AUICCgB&biw=1440&bih=784#imgrc=\_ In terms of style for our overall booth, I want to say a clean, bold design with impactful product and or application photos can work well for this design. For better or for worse, we typically see a lot of blue and water themes. The design should take some cues from version 1.0 of our new website, https://www.jencoi.com. Specifically for these two counters, the main goal is to significantly class up the cheap rental tables, and do so in a way that makes people want to look at our products and the messaging on the backdrop and poster. Some designs inspirations, but I hesitated to provide this because these may or may not work at all for this project: - https://www.behance.net/gallery/19197155/Telit-Internet-of-Things - http://www.ibm.com/us-en/?lnk=m - https://slack.com - https://nest.com - https://www.pinterest.com/pin/223491200234889272/ - https://www.ibm.com/cloud-computing/bluemix/runtimes?lnk=mn - https://graphicriver.net/item/corporate-rollup-banners/12598283?s_rank=17 (yes, this is a $6 template...) - more coming... Our proposed floor plan for the show is attached. The carpet we use will be a dark gray color. All resolutions and colors needs to be print-ready. Deliverables include AI, PS, Affinity or Sketch files used to create the designs plus print-ready PDF. ## Counter covers We are renting two counters - one 72”L x 24”D x 42”H and the other 48”L x 24”D x 42”H. The goal of the design here is to dress up these otherwise cheap looking counters, add to or reinforce the overall atmosphere of the booth. The top surface should be white, and we can print on any of the 4 remaining sides. Templates: will provide once we receive them from vendor What this type of product looks like (not as design guideline): https://ordering.ges.com/071600773/Item/301600 With covers, these counters can end up looking like the images in the link here, though most images are for the shorter, 30”H variety. These images are not super inspiring, but I believe with the right design these counters can look great: https://www.google.com.tw/search?q=fitted+6+foot+counter+cover&client=safari&rls=en&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwj3gfz-7IHSAhXJU7wKHS3CAN8Q\_AUICCgB&biw=1440&bih=784 Content: - Our logo - Measuring Possibilities
Our show is early March, so ideally we want to pick a winner by 2/19, leaving us enough time to have the items made and shipped. I'll do my best to give timely feedback and answers to questions, butI'm currently in Asia, please mind the time difference.
