j31 got their new signage by running a design contest:
Need an eye catching yet mesmerizing sign made for a trade show.
Check out j31's Signage contest…
We are a Frequency Coordination company that helps Wireless ISPs, Utility Providers and TelCo's find licensed microwave frequencies to establish wireless data networks. Think of your cell phone and using the internet on there. There's a wireless backhaul that data comes from. We do that. While Frequency Coordination and FCC Licensing is our primary business, we also do Frequency Protection (preventing interference), where we monitor, review and respond to other companies looking to establish networks within range of our protection clients networks. Our full range of services can be found on our website: www.micronetcom.com. The demographic that we'll be going after is 30-50 yr old men and women (mostly men) running Wireless ISPs. Most of these people are engineers or have backgrounds in engineering but run their companies.
What's your vision?
I need a 2ft wide x 5ft tall sign designed that will be put up in front of all attendees of a trade show happening in March. The goal is to tell my company's story in a way that appeals to both urban and rural ISP's. What I'm imagining is our logo up top and underneath it is customer testimonials that basically explain what services we offer without having to tell it on the sign somewhere else. Underneath that I'm picturing a rural farm with a bright red barn with a grain silo right next to it in the middle with rolling wheat or grass fields behind it and a road in the distance that leads to the barn with a low wood fence framing the road. Off to the left is a lattice tower and to the right of the silo is a big tree and further to the right is a house with tower attached to it. To illustrate a microwave network, a dotted line connects from the top of the houses tower to the silo and the silo has it's own dotted line connecting to the lattice tower on the left. In the foreground, I'm imagining a tractor plowing a field. Underneath that picture, I'm imaging a view from up high of part of the Dallas, TX skyline (that's where we're based) and sprawled out from the skyline, you can see the whole city and suburbs. I'm imagining that the time of day here is dusk with the sun setting in the horizon, which the image could capture. and then from a few of the tallest buildings there are straight dotted lines that lead to a few businesses, apartment buildings and houses also signifying a wireless network. (This is not something like LTE or a cellular network. There is no coverage area. This is connecting one point to the next. Ideally, all the different sections should flow and shouldn't look blocky. I'm working on a catch phrase to put underneath all that to show how we're the best at what we do and we work to serve everybody in both rural and urban locations. This was just given to me today so I'm still working through the message. I'll have the text for the testimonials soon. I have to sift through everything I received to make sure I find just the right ones. Thanks for your help.
If you have better ideas, talk to me and let's flesh it out and really get a great design. I've run a number of contests and have always picked a winner but because this is something last minute and I'm picky, I'm really looking for excellent designing.
