LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
Live Zakynthos (live-zakynthos.com) is a new website promoting the island of Zakynthos (Zante) through stories, articles, videos, maps and events. We are aiming high - we want to make this the official guide to the island.
The website's motto is "Live your dream, be inspired. Live Zakynthos" and
"Live your dream, be inspired. Live Zante"
A few words about the island: It's known with both names Zakynthos and Zante. It's green, with a long summer (May - October), amazing deep blue-emerald-turquoise waters and smooth sandy beaches. It has an incredible nature: there are thousands of olive groves, vines, pine trees and the cicadas never stop. It has a lot of history and culture, traditional villages with Venetian architecture, and old monasteries. People usually go there for leisure, adventure, food & wine and exploration.
Zakynthos is special because of the following reasons:
1) It's the place where Loggerhead sea turtles go to hutch their eggs (Caretta Caretta http://www.euratlas..../red_sea/caretta.jpg ). As a result the turtle is like a mascot for the island.
2) There is a beach with a shipwreck. The specific beach is one of the most photographed in Europe ( http://www.pixdaus.c...1k8S1CtKE2BPyb9d.jpg )
We encourage you to have a good look in flickr, wikipedia and google images to find out more about the place
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
We need a header image AND two identical logos to use for our website. One for "Live Zante" and one for "Live Zakynthos". (Just change the name)
Also consider including our motto (stated above) with a nice clean font.
Aspect Ratio for the header should be 1280 * 210 but leave a bit of headroom in case we need to trim it a bit
No restrictions for Logo aspect ratio.
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
Young families, young couples, explorers, adventurers, artists (painters, writers, photographers). Main ages 30+, mainly Europeans
WE LIKE THESE DESIGNS:
This is what we would like to put across:
For our logo:
Simple and clean. We like this one: http://www.australia.com/index.aspx but bigger
We are thinking of a similar logo with a little swimming turtle instead of a kangaroo
For our header:
People to think "I want to be there".
People to feel freedom
To give a sense of movement and leisure time
Colours: Consider Greens (olive & emerald), blue (sky/turquise), gold (shimmering)
A few designs we like:
http://www.dizzain.com/ (We like the combination of the different elements but we would prefer it wasn't so "clinical")
http://www.tourisme-montreal.org/ (We like the nice panoramic image, in our situation it wouldn't be so urban)
WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE (or we don't want to see) THIS IN OUR DESIGN:
Must Have: Any of the highlights/attractions you will find on the included images (included as a guide but you can use them if you want to) with the Shipwreck being our preferred choice for the header and the turtle being our preferred choice for our logo.
Other things to consider: sun, beach, grapes and wine, olive trees, kids playing on a beach, young couples, people doing watersports all enjoying themselfes.
We supply you with a few pictures as a guide. How you use them and if you use them at all is up to you. We want our visitors to think "This is were I want to be" when they see your design.
Be creative, imaginative and think outside the box. We welcome any style or technique (illustrations, photo retouching, photorealism...)
