We are very specifically looking for a new set of Facebook banners in addition to some social media like button images to embed into our corporate email signatures. I am placing quite a few examples of the level of quality design we are looking for as well as design parameters. I will also include our logo since it will likely have to be used in the process. We are looking for both a left side and center Facebook banner. The design is open and I will provide significant feedback to guide the process with published submissions. The center FB banner (larger) must include some type of reasoning for them to "Like" us and needs to have some designed image of an arrow pointing to the new location where Like buttons are on business pages (left of center). The ideal design concept would center on our slogan "Solutions Outside the Box". It should incorporate our colors (orange/grey/black) and feel free to pull image or design concepts from our current website. Our website is about to change over to a new Wordpress but the content currently up now is valid. Our core group of services revolves around us being "Technology Experts". Since our service list is so wide, we cannot do much more than rely on the slogan of unique "Solutions Outside the Box" and the fact that we know Technology in general. One design theory is to use watermark text labels for the different one word items we support including: telephony, data, security, video, etc.
One final small piece of the campaign is to put a Facebook like and Twitter image concept that we can embed into our email signatures. These must be small in size so as not to cause issues on receiving email systems. Any knowledge in this space regarding embedded email signature images is greatly appreciated. I have no concrete design ideas but have copied into the contest a great example from a customer of ours. I have also provided our current email signature so you can see what you have to design the imagery into...
In the end, we are looking for 2 uniquely sized FB banner designs plus a social media email signature to utilize.
Below are some guidelines for existing reference pages and banner sizing. Some pixel sizes are hard set by FB. Others depend on design.
