Innovative technology startup is looking to redesign its corporate website to incorporate existing logo and branding into an interactive site that will allow prospective customers and partners to explore our solution and see how it works to accomplish their energy management and power consumption goals.
The company takes pride in developing forward thinking products and solutions. We prefer a crisp clean european bran and company image. We believe in making superior products that provide both functional and aesthetic value to our customers.
Design will be implemented in a content management system and will need to be structured to allow for programming into html and css for primary navigation and structure. We are open to using graphical animation and/or flash as part of the product demonstrations, designers showing these skills will be at an advantage since contest winner proficient in flash or graphical animation would have additional work as needs evolve.
1) Business Owners
Monitoring and Usage Reporting
2) Utility Companies
Smart Meters (Old News) Get the Last Mile into the House
Green Energy Usage
Cost Management (Greater in markets with tiered/demand based pricing of energy)
4) Multi Occupancy Housing
Regular Apt Buildings
We are looking for a home page and interior page for a website that will allow us to inform prospects about our products, demonstrate graphically how the products work, collect prospect contact information, and share event /demonstration information. (this site will be implemented in a content management system allowing marketing to update product information and content without requiring programming help.)
The key element for this design concept is to create a set of graphic elements that helps explain what Akida’s technology does and how our products work. We see this as a graphical depiction of how the product or products will work. We have an old version of this for our innGAUGE product. Now that we have moved beyond a single product it is important for this design to support our product/solution families.
• Websafe color palette must conform to the existing logo and product identities (these are not to be changed)
• Welcome Page – Animation of Akida Logo as part of the concept for our value.
• Interior Page – Describe secondary navigation and has to show all elements required for implementation in CSS. (tabs, higlight colors, breadcrumb location, header, footer etc)
• Icon library for use in future demo creation
Nice to Have
• Logo concept for ePLUG Logo consistent with the current logo family
• Logo concept for new uMETER virtual metering product
