Design a four-panel comic-book or manga-style page. We would like this to be a style that can be replicated in a variety of marketing contexts. It should have a look and feel unique to Applied Relevance. If successful in the marketplace, we'd probably want to order more on different products and subjects.
Our current look-and-feel is at http://appliedrelevance.com
We are inspired to do this by Google:
Obviously, we want to have a different look and feel from the Google comic, but the concept is similar.
Here are some guidelines for the four panels:
1) Human mind thinking of the way in which the world is organised
2) Build the tree that reflects that taxonomy
3) Populate the nodes of the tree with rules that mean that the relevant records are returned
4) Use of the finished taxonomy brings enlightenment to the end user
Even though this will be borrowing from the graphic novel genre, we don't want too much darkness or weirdness. No tentacles, please.
We're thinking that a four-pane window style would be most effective, but are open to suggestions. Feel free to submit crazy ideas, we'll comment quickly if you're heading in too wild of a direction.
We are a Mac shop, and prefer Adobe Illustrator or Omnigraffle format. ComicLife is OK, too.
