Contest Brief

Hi!

We are a geological consulting group in Vancouver, Canada, and are shortly moving into a new office! One of the things we focus on is education and mentoring students who are interested and / or looking to get into the industry.

We are excited as this new space comes with a classroom, where we will be able to host groups of children and adults to come look at displays and learn about all things Earth Science.

The classroom is separated from the rest of the office by a large glass window and a door, and so we are looking to have something designed that we can then print onto opaque sheets and placed over the glass to give some privacy from the busy office which may be a distraction.

The dimensions of the window are 71 inches by 71 inches, and the adjoining door is 66.5inches by 27 inches (see attached files). The glass currently has a frosted strip which we will remove to replace with the new image.

The furniture in the images will be gone, and replaced with our own which is more antique looking. As such, we have been inspired by old cross-sectional images of geology drawn 100+ years ago.

What we are looking for in this contest is:

- a geological cross section that is looks continuous across the window and door panel
- muted antique colors (see attached examples)
- no text should be added
- the design should cover from the bottom of the glass to at least half way to three quarters of the way up.
- files should be delivered in Adobe Illustrator or PDF format to allow large scale printing

We will put the final entries before our entire staff for judging before deciding on the final design! This will be a signature piece and right in the entry of the office, so we are looking for something unique and eye catching.

We look forward to seeing what you can imagine for us!

      Hi Khawaja! Yes, we are looking for an original design for the windows that use the sections / colors as inspiration, not a direct copy! W

    Hey there i think this is a really cool project! My best friend is a geologist so hopefully he can help me put a unique spin on this. I just had a question. Do you want this redrawn? so, to use the image as reference and create something similar? just FIY: all the entries so far have just " photoshoped" the image and i doubt you will be able to scale that to the size you want unless its done by hand in vector format. Let me know your thoughts so i can proceed:)

      I am able to draw it from scratch and have the correct sections and text for each segment...but regardless who you choose, just incase you arent familiar with printing in large scale, trust me , if they have just photoshoped the image you uploaded , the entire thing wil be pixelated, ( you can already see in the entries that you cant read the text etc ) so make sure the artist gives you an AI,FILE or PSD file at the scale you are looking for at 300dpi min. hope this helps:)

      Hi Lara! Thanks for the connection! To clarify, we are looking for an original design that is inspired by the images we uploaded. I know that some of the entries so far have been direct copies of low resolution images which will look rough if printed large scale, so I am looking for original AI / PSD or PDF files that can be uploaded. Hopefully we see some cool original ideas coming through!

    Hi All who have submitted entries so far! I just wanted to clarify that we are NOT looking for a copy of the images we put up, but rather these should be inspiration for an original concept. Converting these to Photoshop is not the answer!
