Time Frame: 2 weeks
1 top graphic 990x300
1 smaller top graphic 990x130
3 showcase graphics 87x87
1 Graphic Button
2 Logo’s 300x70
Business Logo Top
Width: up to 310 pixels (this maybe larger if needed but would like to stick to this size if possible)
Height: 65 to 70 pixels
Business logo seen on this site is outdated. Would like to see similar but updated. Maybe a black three bladed propeller with each blade showing a red piranha and The Piranha name similar to the old.
This image must have a transparent background
We may also request a logo that extends up to 600 pixels wide and includes the phone number which we could crop when needed.
This is currently on the site using the (H1) Tag in a text format size, the graphic replacement should be similar in size. Transparent background
This logo should reflect a similar scheme but should reflect a since of “speed”.
Showcase graphics (3)
Each graphic is
Width= 87 pixels
Height= 87 pixels
3 graphic images in the show case area: This can be generic graphics but must represent the ideas listed with each graphic and must reflect the boat propeller industry in some fashion. They don’t need boats or propellers in the images, but as you can see from the images that are currently there, they do not properly reflect the sites over all idea. The customization graphic for instance currently is an artist paint brush, which does not reflect the propeller or boating industry but rather the artist industry.
Large Background Primary image:
Width= 990 pixels
This Background image, to understand the overall idea for the replacement for this image you must have a couple of things in mind; we are attempting to reflect the piranha business idea with this background image. Even though there is nothing wrong with the image that is currently there, it needs to be of better quality and it needs to have something in the image that reflects our business. I have included a top header graphic image of the old site so that you have some idea of what we did before. The older banner is of poor graphic quality, but we might like to see something representative of our business in the new background. This is not absolutely necessary but something in the background image must reflect the boating, water idea, and piranha idea. Colors are somewhat important also since contextual words are difficult to drop across some colors in images. As you can see we have contextual information over the top of this graphic. Just make sure that the background banner looks decent in regards to the text and video locations, that’s the main thing.
Some rough ideas of what I originally had in mind for the top graphic.
Rough ideas; image of a couple of boats on the water with the new piranha logos on the boats. Keep in mind that Jet boats Do Not use propellers. The other Idea I had was to simply have a nice tropical image and have the words piranha floating just below the surface of the water. I don’t know how practical these ideas are but it gives you some idea of what I have been thinking. Originally I planned to use an animated gif of this idea but thought the gif would be too large in size and would cause the site to load slowly.
Smaller top banner
Height= 130 approx
There are sub pages on this site that will not use the large banner. 990 width is a must but the height can vary up to 150px. This banner could be a cropped version of the larger top graphic banner if needed.
Site Contextual Buttons.
Wordpress uses contextual links and I would like to have the ability to change these contextual links into graphic buttons which can be editable by the end user using GIMP. I would like as high a quality graphical buttons that reflect the businesses graphic set as possible and maybe the business logo in part if possible. The primary consideration is color match and edit ability by the end user. This will allow us to take the button graphic and apply to any text element we wish for linking.
So maybe the button might have the propeller symbol at the beginning of each button element with the text after each symbol and a standard version without the logo, for some cases.
The old site is located at http://www.piranha.com
