Dear all - @alberto @matthias @nadia @noemi
This morning I had a conversation with Lorenzo who explained me better the kind of work he can do and the kind of request he can accomplish. We decided that he would have done a simulation of the possible final result using an illustration, like he proposed to do with the first visual I posted up here, and with a stock solarpunk image.
As he’s working on The Reef and SciFi Economics Lab, he used the stock solarpunk image @augusto found and wrote on it the copy of SciFi Economics Lab; but, you know, the purpose it’s to show how it will be in the two cases, in order to visualize it.
Well, he wrote me an email with more details I copy you here.
As per our phone conversation, here you can find 2 explorations for style , that could be used on both projects: The Reef, Sci Fi Econ Lab.
I’ve done 2 options for SciFiEconLab, and 1 option for The Reef.
I’ve also added a mockup as a bonus, since some people might struggle to imagine the final look of these visuals.
As we decided, we are doing this as an intermediate step between BRIEF and PROPOSALS ROUND 2. In fact there are countless possible way to design the same content, but as we are all aware, time and budget allow us only a certain number of feasible solutions.
As I’ve explained, this is a style exploration, done, as agreed upon over the phone, to understand the clients’s tastes in matter of visual treatment of the content.
This is not a concept proposal. The illustrations you see here, are the work of art of other professional illustrators. They are not for sale and they are not a concept proposal. They are only examples of what the final outcome could look like, if the clients want to have an illustration as a solution. Just FYI, any of these illustration examples would probably cost easily £2000/£3000 if commissioned to these illustrators. Not considering the cost of producing designed deliverables, twitter posts, and so on.
As you know “bespoke illustrations" are not part of our contract. Anyway, as we discussed over the phone, as a personal favour to you Ilaria, I’m happy to explore a bespoke illustration route for both projects. Of course only if this is appreciated and people understand the amount of skills and work hours that have go into this.
Here I’ve outlined two main approaches that can be delivered on time and budget, and that can match the client / clients personal tastes.
One approach is a minimalistic stylised illustration. As per examples.
If client/clients like this style of visual solution, I’ll go back to the drawing board to put together Proposal Round N2 (of the 2 you have available in the contracts). The final result will be in style with these examples I’m sending.
The other approach is, as per client request, a Royalty Free image in a designed layout with information about the event.
Please check this image, or any future images, can be commercially used and, most importantly, be printed/used on a high number of supports.
As per our contract, any cost related to the purchase of any image and/or its licensing rights, will be solely at client’s expense.
Now, here are the options:
This is the mockup:
So here we have the two options: please, let me know by the end of today which way you prefer to go
