Creative brief

Business Name

RUCEC

What do you do?

Training and education for adults -- this site is for women only

Describe the target audience for your header design

Working women

Does your header need to be a specific size?

This needs to follow the Facebook size specs -- there are 2 pieces to the header:
The timeline image dimensions are 851 pixels wide by 315 pixels high.
The samller -- square shaped profile image is 180 x 180 pixels (but in posts, it will be displayed smaller -- so it must have a clear image at about 1/2 that size)

What is your industry?

Education

What 3 things would you like to communicate to your audience through your header design?

I'd like to have this be a bright and happy timeline header design -- that features our logo in a way that integrates well with whatever other images are used in it. Do stick with the color themes used on the attached logo.

If you use pics of women (and I'm not sold on doing that ... I'm open to timeline designs that don't use pics) -- do show diversity of age/race/etc.

What header design styles do you like?

LIVESTRONG -- great sense of branding -- http://www.facebook.com/fanta#!/livestrong

COKE (strong use of brands and like the multi-pic here) https://www.facebook.com/cocacola

BEN & JERRY'S (simple color scheme -- shows brand well) http://www.facebook.com/search/results.php?q=be...

NIKE -- nice montage - http://www.facebook.com/nike

WALMART -- good branding and clever use of pics

What colors do you want to see in your header design?

We should play heavily off the brand colors (blue and green) used in the Women's Link Logo. We definitely want to give a bright happy vibe to this.

What colors do you NOT want to see in your header design?

don't go heavy dark. Keep the colors vibrant

What adjectives should best describe your header design?

Bright -- energetic -- happy

What content must be included in the header design?

Use the logo.

Other copy includes our slogan: Your Link to Professional Success

and very small somewhere it should include the copy -- "Women's Career Link from National Seminars Training"

Do you have additional requirements or links you'd like to share?

Just make sure the design really reflects the brand -- and the brand is best represnted by the logo I'm providing. It's bright -- and flowy ... not stuffy.

NOTE: I'm attaching a copy of the files we have for the newsletter design that coordinates with this facebook page just as an FYI -- you should not use copy from it on this design.
