Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Glades Brewing Company is a microbrewery opening in South Florida. 'The Beer of the Everglades' will embrace the outdoor, adventurous lifestyle of the Everglades, one of the largest ecosystems in North America with a rich history of fishing, boating, smuggling and hunting. A portion of our proceeds benefit Everglades restoration and preservation efforts. Our flagship beer is made with Florida oranges and Everglades cane sugar. Our motto is 'Made in the Shade'.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We are creating an illustration heavy webpage that will help paint the picture of Glades beer within the Florida lifestyle. We are looking to have a Florida background scene made for the scrolling website in either illustrator or photoshop.
We are looking to have a number of 'cartoon like' avatars enjoying beers on a boat, beach or golf course while having some other Florida cliches included like an alligator and Florida post card. I would like to see the illustrations laid over a nautical like map (attached) and include references to the old timey boats, mangroves, tarpon fishing and the Rod & Gun Club photos I have attached for inspiration. I am basically looking to see the mockup illustration I did in the file 'GladesWebsiteMockup' done professionally.
I want the feel to be historic and nostalgic while creating some illustrations based on the files I have attached incorporated into the overall design. We will overlay the components of the website on top of this design ('about' links, ecommerce links, etc) so please have the illustrations border the page. At a minimum please make the illustration objects on their own layers so we can adjust if needed for the website design.
