Perry Gruber Limited is a socially responsible entertainment and educational professional speaking company. This is the second of three contests for creating the brand. As the principal talent, I’m looking for an integrated design that will convey the Perry Gruber Limited brand across many needs. This contest is for the web site. Another separate contest for my printed material will be launched once the winner of this design contest is selected. As a website, I’m looking for something highly unique, that will be artistically inspiring and energetic, but elegantly simple, not over the top. Coding is not required.
***PLEASE READ MY DETAILED BRIEF***
Perry Gruber Limited
Perry Gruber Limited is a social entrepreneurial venture whose business objective is to socially engineer human culture by increasing the number of people living lives of deep conscious awareness of their connectedness to themselves, their fellow living creatures and their environment. We believe individuals who have transcended their egos and are living lives from deep conscious awareness can have a profound impact on humanity’s future and the planet’s future too. We believe this is critical if humanity is to fully take advantage of new opportunities future technologies will offer us.
Our first market offerings are speeches, workshops, seminars, published articles of our work and philosophy and special events that introduce people to and inspire them to connect with their deep conscious awareness leading to six behaviors we believe are critical to humanity's survival:
1. A commitment to reduced material consumption
2. A commitment to reduce the pursuit of physical and emotional egoic needs and desires
3. Increased commitment to environmental stewardship and behavior changes that stem from it, reflecting an awareness that we and the environment are one
4. Increased affinity and relatedness to the plight of one’s fellow human beings through spiritual practice
5. A choice to pursue a life free of suffering of all kinds for self and others
6. Increased joy and passion for life resulting from reconnecting with one’s conscious awareness
THIS INFORMATION IS CRITICAL, PLEASE READ: I’m looking for a simple website design that will support overall mission and our brand in the first phase of our launch, something highly unique, artistically, that will be inspiring and energetic, and set us off from other speakers’ websites, but elegantly simple, too, not over the top. My content is entertaining, eye-opening, educational and inspirational so the website must be exciting and dynamic, but it also must speak to the characteristics mentioned in the “wants” section below. As well, it should represent both the nature of our work and the nature of a professional lecturer, public speaker and writer. The web design must also play off the logo design, which is included for your reference. I’m attaching pictures of myself to give you an idea of the character and energy this site should communicate. However, these aren't the pictures for the site. I'm having professionally shot pictures done next month. Please recall the content mentioned above in the background, this site is about delivering content that his highly transformative in nature and is meant to cause transformation in the world.
As a reference, you may want to visit these two sites to get ideas, but don’t copy them….While they’re ok, I’m looking for something more edgy and futuristic, but, again, not over the top.
Your design should key off the logo. Do not just throw the logo on so it looks like an after thougth. This is my brand and I want to become the main identity for the company. Here's a link to a picture of the Perry Gruber Limited Logo:
The site must be able to load quickly. It must be able to integrate You Tube videos and audio files into the design. These files will be demonstrations of my speaker engagements. It must also be able to include an e-commerce component in the future, but not right now.
The site needs to be easy to navigate, clear, and yet lively and energetic. Primary users of the site will be those looking to hire me for their events. So the site will be primarily a selling tool and a place for prospective “customers” to get more information to help them choose to book me for their events.
The tagline "Build community, leave a legacy, create the future....Let's do it differently." Should be included near the top of the website as it is the company tagline. Also, prominently displayed should be the subject matter our talent speaks to:
• Unique perspective on Leadership
• Conscious Awareness in action
• Technology and its implications for humanity
Website contents: If you can do all this on one page, it would be better. Remember, though simplicity of design is the key at this point in our launch, let’s also try to build a design that inspires! Here’s the content I’m looking for:
On the home page – basically a reproduction of what will be on our brochure/one sheet promo piece: introducing Perry Gruber the speaker, his content, his unique selling point and a couple of pictures.
About Perry Gruber and what he offers – details on the subject matter, examples of speeches, client examples, and bio.
Booking information – a section or page or link where a potential client can make a request for more information or to inquire about hiring us. This section also will lay out fee schedule.
Testimonials – a section for past clients who we have wowed with our delivery
Our contact information – How to reach us
Links to PDFs of our printed material including publicity pictures to download, articles we will have written and copies of our speeches, etc.

Essentially, I want simple, yet edgy elegance.
I'm not a New Age speaker, so no galaxies, mandalas, buddhas, bamboo, unicorns or anything else conveying allegiance to the New Age or spiritual movement.
Please no religious connotations, we are not a religious organization
No cartoons, please
