We are seeking a graphical image for the home page of our web site. This image should be abstract, but it should imply the following: underwater, wireless communication, “tech”, “speed”, futuristic. But ideally will also imply efficient / effective. Ideally will inspire wonder, and be inviting.
Google “underwater wireless communication” and you will see many images. I am including images 1 – 6 as examples of what I do NOT want. Images 1,2 and 3 are concrete examples of trying to show underwater wireless communication between physical structures - I don't want this image to be an example of what our technology can do. Images 4 and 5 are more abstract, and in my opinion image 6 is getting closer to what we want. Images 7 & 8 (the covers of the books) appeal to us a lot. Both have these multi-color waveforms, and both give the impression of being underwater, especially #8, as if you are looking upwards toward a light above the water. #7 has the glowing stars, something like photographs of deep interstellar space: this is intriguing, but maybe is too much like outer space instead of underwater? Both are a little bit dark though; it would be better if they were a bit cleaner and brighter.
Assuming we get a design that looks good, it is likely that we will superimpose one of our products on it, offset to the left or right, so we may have to tweak the overall concept to ensure that our home page achieves the goals of the image, but also leaves a bit of space for a product image.
If a good image emerges, we will ask the designer to note the three major colors because we will likely build our web site color scheme around these base colors. To date we have been leaning towards greens & yellows and turquoise/watery blues. For instance, image 9 is one of our renderings … likely it will appear somewhere on our web site so ideally the home page image will harmonize with it to some degree.
