Please see below in the next section our brief instructions >>> *** NOTE that we only look for "Square" and "Leaderboard" formats for the first phase of the contest.
Brief instructions : As explained, the objective of the message is for users to come to our site and submit their renovation project. Our brand / logo should be well visible on the ad, as this campaign will be for Google AdWords re-marketing, meaning it will show up to users that have already been on our site previously (so they have to recall our brand and recognize it). You can be inspired by the actual look & feel from our site, but you don't necessarily have to take the same graphic elements. The images or icons used should be specific to the renovation industry, so the message is clear about what we offer. The "catch" line could be something like : "Do you have a renovation project ?". The 3 main advantages of our service is that the users : save time and money, compare quotes, get access to trusted contractors. The ad should also show that our service is free (maybe besides the "submit your project" button like on the website. The call-to-action would be something like : "Submit your project". (large button that stands out). You can play around with the message, you don't necessarily have to use the same structure or words. We are looking for a clean design, not too crowded, colorful but not too much, with very clear / short messages, not too much text, nice images or graphics that remind the renovation industry, great contrast so the ad sticks out well and is easy to read, etc. We look for a very clear call-to-action and large button that is inviting to click. We would most probably need French versions as well, but we can work that out separately as extra 1-on-1. Logo is attached. NOTE : that we know there are 10 different sizes, so there is some work involved to adjust the graphics into all those different formats. We will be flexible to work in all fairness with the selected designer and pay extra if required if there is too much work. *** CONTEST : For the purpose of the first phase of the contest, please only work on the "Square" and "Leaderboard" sizes. We will select the finalists based on that, and replicate all the requested sizes with the winner only (to avoid too much work).
