How Avenue81 started their other graphic design journey

Company name

Project Mojave

Overview

I curse a lot.

Project Mojave (PM) is a monthly membership website aimed at (and marketed to) 20 to 35-year-olds seeking an alternative to corporate life. Project Mojave started in February 2009 and officially launched in May to a list of roughly 800 people (approximately 200 members joined from that list). Project Mojave's tagline is "Create a 'Freedom Business' in 3 Months"; this tagline is also our unique selling proposition (USP). (I define a "Freedom Business," as a business that has no accounts receivable, requires little capital investment, has an automated sales process, and has a high probability of success in a short period of time).

I'm proud of the fact that for every month someone is a member of Project Mojave, we pay for a month of schooling for one freed slave in Africa (including books, teachers, room and board). In one of our banner ads we say "You get Freedom Education, THEY Get Freedom Education.

I'm also excited about the first annual Project Mojave conference (called "Burning Cube," which will be a 3-day camping trip held in Joshua Tree National Park (located in the Mojave Desert). The conference is a kind of “Burning Man for the Lifestyle Design Community.” During the first night of the conference we’re going to ceremoniously burn a wooden cubicle, cheer, and talk about our dreams.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Smart, educated, 20 to 35-year-olds seeking an alternative to corporate life. They want to be rebellious AND respected.

Requirements

So we have a logo that you can download here:

http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/138951/2835205.psd

And here: http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/138951/m…nalcmyk.ai

The header should be 140 pixels tall. I also would like the yellow at the end of the gradient to be a richer (more intense) shade of yellow.

Feel free to play around with a texturized background . . . perhaps something like this:

http://screencast.com/t/Qib6o0YNKzaR

The slogan for the logo should change from "Build a Freedom Business in 3 Months" to "The Freedom Business Epicenter"

Please format that text however you want, and play around with emphasizing the term "Freedom Business".

The header should be 1260 pixels wide and look good if it is centered on a webpage.

THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT: While you're welcome to use textures or gradients, etc. (we want you to use them), the leftmost and right most part of the header should fade to a solid web-friendly color. (This is because we don't know how wide a screen is when someone's looking at this, so we want to use HTML or CSS to repeat a solid color to the left and right of the header indefinitely) . . . if this doesn't make sense to you, just make the header as you normally would and I'll tell you how to fix it later.
