Bryan @ Friendsource got their new social media page by running a design contest:
Exciting New Friend-sourcing Web/FB App Seeks Engaging Brand Vision: FB COVER IMAGE + PROFILE PIC
Check out Bryan @ Friendsource's Social media page contest…
- we are looking for a design that uses a clever interplay between the cover image and the profile picture - we'd like to emphasize that we are a Facebook application, and that we have apps available in the App Store, and Google Play (integrate their 'Available in' graphics) - integrate to, but also feel free to expand on, the palette provided for our logo. - one concept we would like to explore is to find a way to communicate our core activities in the visual presentation in a manner similar (without copying or mimicking) to: https://www.facebook.com/postplanner [Core Activities] - Find Service Providers Your Friends Use - Chat Anonymously With Service Providers - Build & Share Your Network With Friends [Our Product] Friendsource is a free Facebook-integrated mobile and web application that gives you a simple and organized way to ask your friends for service provider referrals. Build and share your list of preferred providers and contact providers anonymously online. As your network grows you have instant access to service providers you can trust. [Target Audience] The app is general purpose, but we think the primary audience is decision-makers in a family home who are researching and scheduling doctors, home upkeep services, family care, pet care. Based on our Facebook fan stats, 25-55 year old mothers. 76% of our fans are women in that demographic. Since our app can be marketed for use by any demographic for any subset of service categories that are relevant to that demographic, the logo should be friendly and engaging to women, but not overtly feminine in a way that could deter other demographics. [Target Vibe] trustworthy information, crisp interface, 'cool', useful, simple [Industry] We are competing in the consumer-services space against companies like - Angie's List - RedBeacon - HomeAdvisor - SupportLocal - TaskRabbit - Thumbtack [Values] The basis of our brand is that you are getting trustworthy information from people you already know and trust. We cement and strengthen existing communities by showing socially-relevant providers to people and broadening market access for the most reliable and trustworthy providers in that social circle.
Communicate (subtly, or explicitly... we're interested in many kinds of design) the [Core Activities] mentioned in the 'visual style' section of the brief. We want there to be some clever interplay between the Facebook Profile Picture and the Facebook Cover Image We would like our logo integrated in some way, we included many variations of the text color/background color, we don't require all of them of course but wanted to give you color options to work from
What to avoid
Facebook limits the amount of text in a cover image to 20% of the total image canvas, and the final design will be subject to that verification. If the design does not meet that requirement, we will require the text of the design be adjusted until it passes Facebook validation.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Social media page starts at $109.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their social media page.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Bryan @ Friendsource collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
