FIRST!! (#1) - Download our PowerPoint slides & READ the slide notes (the images are Zipped), + check out our blog, Facebook & Twitter pages - there is truly a feeling/vibe of post-Punk that we're looking for (not trading on the cliche "ransom note" lettering of earlier Punk - ala "Anarchy in the UK" - etc.) - it's more about the trans-Atlantic cross-pollination of musical & sub-cultural styles that happened in the window between 1979-1983 *(before MTV took over)
SECOND! (#2) - since we gave you a design brief, we need one from you. A single image or 3 "title"/ poster images isn't going to work for us. Make us a creative brief - at least a 3 to 5 page presentation, slide show, PDF or Word doc. (The more detailed you can be, the more likely we'll be interested).
Our goal is to reach our Target Audience in a scripted, clear, deliberate & approachable way. Describe in your brief (which will show you read the materials) how you will create:
A) A simple yet powerfully magnetic Keynote or PowerPoint template (coupled with a new doc trailer we're working on)
B) Reusable Design Elements, consisting of a style-guide & possible lexicon of iconography to convey the feeling & set the contextual tone of GIAO (and MediaGroove). We intend to use these in a new InDesign version of our Business Plan
C) Typography - Since our logo was designed using the FF Meta typeface, we've also adopted it as our company font --- if you can work with Meta to help us expand our use of it in attractive, designerly ways, great!
D) Last but not least, we need a package of work to help set the tone and identity of GIAO as we both rally people to help us complete it and promote it to the world. An "Identity Kit / Toolbox" to work with / build upon. Templates, yes - but a style and a look carries the water
