- Graphick Kicks
Graphick Kicks was brilliant throughout this project. His completely innovative concept came to our attention during an open competition, and we moved it to a one-on-one project based on this. For a month now, he has been 100% diligent, professional and patient. We believe that his final designs are not only original, but reflect our brand in the best possible light. Graphick Kicks has our highest recommendation and we hope to work with him again in the future. Amazing!

This is an extension of a previous contest for the creation of our brands character, the edamame ninja. This contest is for the website landing page. The theme is based off traditional Japanese imagery. As you can see in the images posted there are a few main elements i will explain. First off the red hut was taken from japanese pagodas. The hut itself should have a simple feel to it. It can also be slightly animated but not too cartoonish. The text "Edamame Hut" is located in the top bar of the hut. Above the bar will be the tabs and icons for each. The only one that will stay the same is the Ninja icon because that is the actual character we had designed. The others can be customized but for the hut icon try to keep it similar to what is in the image.
Now their are 2 design layout possibilities for the landing page each is posted in the documents.
-The middle white area inside the hut will be for the content. Try making this section stand out a little by shading the outline to make it look more 3D.
As you go down their should be some space of just the hut walls. Then starts bamboo and other greens on both sides.
-The hut has been shrunk in this one to fit into more of a scene at the bottom of the page. This reminds me of the site yardsellr.com if you scroll to the bottom. I like the feel of the animation in that site.
Now the bottom area is what you can play around with.
The things I've included are:
-Japanese Koi fish pond
-Zen garden stone with sand patterns.
(You can google any of these images to see what they look like)
In the bottom right corner add a customized facebook and twiiter icon buttons.
Now as for the overall feel we are open to different interpretations, So some may do more animated while others more real-life looking. We want to see all variations and will let all designers know which styles we like best.
