TASK: Design a family of 4 icons for the Quadrel products iService, iAlerts, iBiz, iCost. (Quadrel is the family brand name for the suite of software products).
ICONS:A family of 4 icons. Used on website and possibly in product menus. You can read about the 4 products here https://www.quadreliservice.com/Pro…aphics.php. We have an apple like "i" naming convention (which predated Apple).
Some notes (and suggestions, want to see your own creativity!) per product icon:
1) iService - https://www.quadreliservice.com/Pro
The core module. Basically the center where you control everything (the concrete raw materials -> creation -> production life cycle). Here you design concrete, run lab tests, do concrete strength analysis, and can see all your supplier, cost, and product data. Possible icon ideas: cool rendition of name iService or just iS, or some graphic portraying graphs/center of control / front-end to production system.
2) iAlerts - https://www.quadreliservice.com/Products_CLI.php
Module that monitors and alerts on manufacturing process of concrete (tells you what's going wrong, what you can do). Alerts come in reports or via texts/email in real-time so you can make sure you are producing top quality concrete according to customer needs. Icon ideas: name or iA, exclamation point, etc.
3) iBiz - https://www.quadreliservice.com/Products_CLS.php
Module for sales management. Helps salesmen make quotes (price at which will sell concrete products to contractors) and manage margins. Icon: name or iB, upward trending graph
4) iCost - https://www.quadreliservice.com/Products_CLS.php
Module for keeping track of material costs, cost histories, mix costs. icon: name or iC, dollar sign?
STYLE: Please check out our website http://www.quadreliservice.com. You can see our theme colors are purple (84,66,132), orange (255,163,71), and blue (103, 180, 225) and gray. We are going for a modern, clean, bright look. We are a technology company for the construction industry (particularly concrete producers) so we want to have a cool yet simple and strong image.
Examples: http://www.icrete.com/, marketo and spark by marketo http://www.marketo.com.
SOFTWARE: Our software runs in Windows and is VB.net or VB6. We are going for a UI makeover as well but icons are first step!
** We are interested in developing a longer term relationship with the winner. We have loads more to make-over! :)
