What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
Primary Element – Knight : “Sir PortalGuard”
o Holding shield
o Shield should have our lock logo in it
Secondary Elements – Offensive/engaging persona: Knight actively taking on the dragon/villain as it nears the computer screen
o Logins/passwords unprotected by PortalGuard will be on fire; however the dragon/villain never reaches the PortalGuard desktop screen because the Knight, is actively fighting it off.
o Dragon breathing fire on the knight as it passes over him harmlessly.
Tertiary Elements – Color Scheme and Tone
o Use our brand colors (Orange and Green)
o Hex codes: Green - #009933 ; Orange - #ff9601
o For lock logo, USE GREEN COLORS/SHADES ONLY.
o Standardized, secure logins somehow sheds light on the overall image tone as the dragon is surrounded by a darker tone.
o Free to come up with other version of shield to make it work, just needs the lock
o “How” the knight vs villain action scene is portrayed is open to creativity.
o Does not have to be a computer screen
o Passwords do not necessarily need to be represented as binary digits if a better alternative is proposed
o Hex codes are more for a guideline and do not necessarily have to be exact.
o Where the orange color is featured is up to the designer
o Tone can be manipulated by the designer
Our industry, by extension is Authentication Security Software.
With this image, are goal is to capture these themes without masking what our product/service is all about.
