Contest Brief

Hello! We are a financial advising office that is looking to upgrade our newsletter to a magazine. We work with HIGH NET WORTH clients and want our magazine to reflect this. We have all the content/articles for the magazine but are looking for a template to fill in the content into going forward. I attached all the content in different word documents so that you are able to plug it in for spacing. We know we will have about 4 different sections that we would like color coded (or some way to tell them apart) like most magazines have. We know we want the template to look like a high end magazine with CREATIVE LAYOUTS, 2-PAGE SPREADS, lots of images, creative high end fonts (possibly something to coordinate with the “SA” in our logo for headers, and then something thin for the majority of the text), and please continue our branding and the look and feel from our website ([login to view URL]) throughout. (what we like most about the graphics in our website is the light, airy and open feel of the photos) The magazine will be around 16 pages, included in that is the front and back cover. Below is the outline of the articles we will be having and how many pages approximately to allow for each article, but we are very open to how we can creatively fit these articles together to fit within the 16 pages. I will also attach our team photo that we would like somewhere in there, our style guide with our logo and color codes, (we are wanting a new font for the magazine text) and some samples of magazines we like. We also have a disclosure that we must include at the end of magazine, in small print at the bottom which is in the last page of the style guide. We are excited to see how you can CREATIVELY make our magazine look high end and match our look and feel of our website. Our new tagline is "Retire With Confidence" we need that in our magazine as well!

    Why is everyone submitting logos? It's for a magazine layout.
