I'm the owner and creator of the Deck of Secrets series of printed guides and co-developer of the apps. We create popular city guides in the deck of cards format for cities around the world. It's a Melbourne, Australia based company that values smart design that is in equilibrium with the photographic images and copy. Our guides are cool but accessible. I admire intelligent design that enhances the products' functionality and appeal. I work a lot with designers and enjoy collaborating while trusting the designer and giving specific feedback.
Our iPhone apps were first released in November and cover bar, shopping and restaurant guides. Visit iTunes and search 'Deck of Secrets' to see our existing splash screens. We are working on version 2 of the apps and are keen to get a more sophisticated splash screen. Our apps will be considered for purchase by iTunes customers not currently familiar with our brand and printed guides. We need to convey the connection quickly and reinforce the brand.
Create a 5 second animated/stop motion portrait format introductory splash screen for an iPhone app (to be rolled out across the series).
Using supplied images available from our website to create the concept. http://www.deckofsecrets.com/AboutU…loads.aspx
I'm open to other ideas but keen to see our deck of cards format guides displayed with cards coming out of the deck or going in, possibly flipping to show the maps on the back.
Our Deck of Secrets logo should also move into position once to draw attention to it.
I'm looking for a design that fits in with the look of the company or enhances it.
Examples of free apps with slash screens with an effect I admire are Chanel and Adidas Urban Art.
