We are a print company. We are in the process of releasing a template based web site, from which customers can select a template (for example a baby announcement), upload their picture, change the text and order the cards printed. The generating of the templates is a big job, as we need many, therefore we are now looking for more designs and are hoping to find talent among the entries.
For our template based print ordering site, we need many different templates. To make this competion fair, we will focus on baby announcment cards. A picked winner - will be offered to make more templates. Other entrants may also be contacted for further cooperation.
For the baby announcement card the print needs (as a minimum)
Picture of the baby
Name of the baby
Date and time of birth
Weight and length of baby at birth
Could also include sample text such as "Nora and Alex are proud to present..." or anything similar - be creative.
I have attached a sample image from minted.com as inspiration
The freelancer project generator states that you must submit as .ai or .eps. This is NOT correct. I cant seem to be able to change it - so do not submit .ai or.eps. ONLY pdf (or jpgs for screen view) generated from indesign is acceptable.
All designs MUST be created using indesign. Our website translates indesign documents and makes online templates in flash form indesign file.
All fonts used must be system fonts (arial, times helvetica) or free fonts (license free for commercial use)
All fonts should include special charachters æ, ø and å (æ &oslah; and å) - since our main target audience will be in Norway. Any further cooperation after the competition will be strictly limited to fonts with special characthers.
Some indesign features are not compatible with our system and should preferrably not be used.
The only object effect that is supported is Drop shadow. Any other effects must be created in photshop or illustrator (or similar software) and linked to indesign.
The only corner effect that is supported is rounded corners. Any other corner effect/frame shape must be created in illustrator (or similar software) and linked/placed in indesign as an object.
Keep in mind when making a template that it must be possible to fit both short and long names (for very long and very short names our software will scale the text to fit the template, but the template should look good using long and short sample texts/names).
The desgns can be single page, double page or 4 page folded cards.
You'll need to provide your design in AI and EPS formats.
We will be focusing on sizes A6 (148x105mm), A5 (210x148mm) and 140x140mm.
