mail5C got their new poster by running a design contest:
FrankfurtRheinMain start-up community is looking for a great poster for their start-up ecosystem
Check out mail5C's Poster contest…
We're the heads of the start-up ecosystems in Munich and in the region of Frankfurt. The poster will be the eye catcher in every office of our local start-ups, investors and friends of our start-up communities.
What's your vision?
Hey there, We want to create a great poster about our ecosystem with a bunch of logos of players from different categories (startups, investors, etc.), fun-facts, and some of the famous sights of the Frankfurt Rhine/Main region. Our theme is: "It takes a region to raise a startup". And thats the most important part. We want to show, that everyone is a necessary part of this community, because we need to help each other. And because of the cities themselves too, of course. What we want to say to each other is: We are one team, one region and thanks to you folk, we're doing great business. The poster should have a lot of details, so that you like to look at it and discover something new. So maybe you could pick some of the sights / skylines / other things to recognise a city. The cities of this region are: Mainz Wiesbaden Offenbach Darmstadt Frankfurt Hanau Worms Aschaffenburg Here is our contest from last year: https://99designs.de/poster-design/contests/munich-start-up-community-looking-great-poster-ecosystem-708850/entries. But this time we'd prefer a more unique, more illustrated poster with less generic stock material and flashier colors. ###The content elements### Headline: It takes a region to raise a startup Subline: FrankfurtRheinMain Region We need to feature different target groups with the same size logos, but visually separated: - Start-up logo blog (more than 40 logos): Start-ups build with love in our region - - - plus leave a space of the average size of a logo, so that a startup can pin their own logo on the poster - Incubators & Accelerators (10 logos): Incubators & Accelerators - Investor logo blog (5 logos): Investors - Main events logo blog (5 logos): Main Events - Sponsor logo blog (bigger logos and some space for up to 25 words describing their company, 5 logos, maybe in the footer): Created with the help from ###(Fun) facts about the eco-system### - XXX start-ups - XXX Mio € invested in 2017 - and up to 3 more facts (please use a placeholder) ###The style### Here is some visual inspiration: 1.
