What do you do?

We help Pinterest users put a variety of content onto Pinterest, at the moment we support sticky notes, Websites and Twitter profiles, we’ll soon be adding calendar dates and much more.

Our work is visually led so we’re also looking to work with a talented designer in the long term.

Do you have a desired widget or app screen size?

The widget will be created at resolution of 1024 pixels across by an arbitrary height, we then snapshot this and the snapshot to Pinterest.

How many pages do you need designed?

1

What is your industry?

Consumer Internet

Describe the target audience for your widget or app

Pinterest users.

What are 3 things would you like to communicate to your audience through your widget or app design?

Beautiful - this is to go on Pinterest so needs to have a high visual impact.
Simple - this is for everyone to use.
Clean - it should be easy to read the information when shrunk down to Pinterest display size (say around 200x200).

What widget or app design styles do you like?

Apple - http://outtacontext.com/life/images/ic@l2.jpg

Clean, beautiful and simple.

What colors do you want to see in your widget or app design?

Some of the colours could be picked from the user’s twitter profile:

But I’m happy to here suggestions otherwise

What colors do you NOT want to see in your widget or app design?

See above.

What adjectives should best describe your widget or app design?

What content must be included in the widget or app design?

The User’s Twitter: Full Name, @Name, Website URL, Description, Last Tweet (or Tweets)

Hey Cool Designer Type Person

As a newbie to crowdSPRING I might not have given the best style guide to this project :-) So here’s a bit more info.

Ideally we’re looking for a design that fits in with Pinterest’s style - that means it should probably be a photo-realistic and potentially skeuomorphic style to it.

An example of an ideal design style is Apple’s iCal style:

http://outtacontext.com/life/images/ic@l2.jpg

Which represents the information to convey (in this case a date) as a photo realistic skeuomorph - a desk calendar.

We’re happy to consider other design styles as long as it blends well with Pinterest content ( http://pinterest.com/all/ ).

Hope that helps,
Neil Ellis
