****THE SUMMARY (IN THE 'DESCRIPTION' SECTION) SHOULD BE ALL YOU NEED
TO GET STARTED. THIS 'NOTES' SECTION CONTAINS FINE DETAILS THAT YOU

4) For the tennis string tiles, you will notice that each string type
has graphical performance ratings for spin generation, durability and
elasticity. These graphical ratings should be redesigned as well. We
are not happy with the way that these look. Obviously, the new
graphical ratings will need to fit in well with the rest of the tile
design. Please see attached image 'graphical-performance-ratings' to
see current design. The new icons need to be simple (not too
5) Our existing tiles contain our old company logo. In all cases, the
old logo needs to be replaced with our new company logo (vector &
image files provided).
6) All tennis string tiles must contain the graphical construction
detail (in its present form). To be clear, this is the 3-D magnified
representation of how each string would look were a person to view it
under magnification. In the existing tile designs, you will notice
that these construction details generally appear to their tile's left
side. For the new design, these construction details can be
re-orientated as desired but this graphic must be clearly visible.
Until we reach the final stages of the competition, please use the
string construction detail graphics as they are provided on the
website. In the final rounds, we will furnish higher resolution image
files for these. For example, to acquire a construction detail of
snake-bite, got to:
(click on the 'larger image' link on this page, once large image pops
up, copy its url - by right clicking usually, enter the url to your
browser's address bar, then save image to your computer, then you can
crop out whatever you need from this image for your new design).
Additionally, we DO NOT have vector files available for these
construction detail images. However, as already mentioned, we will
supply higher resolution images of all construction detail images
7) New tiles must be of same aspect ratio as current tiles, and must
be effective at their current sizes. We need these tiles to function
exactly the same as the existing ones. Once we have the new tiles, we
simply want to replace the current tile images with the new ones. No
other changes to our website should be required.
8) Product photos: Please follow instructions given in item '6)' above
to obtain the product images. In the latter stages of the
we will provision higher resolution images.
9) Special products: Snake Bite is our best selling tennis
string/product. We have a Snake-Bite logo that could be incorporated
into its tile (file provided).
10) Towards the bottom of each product detail page, you will notice
that there are smaller square tiles, with each specific variation of
the product (for example, see provided image file called 'product
variation tile'). These tiles can be clicked on to enlarge. We need
templates for these as well. Present aspect ratios, functionality and
information must all be retained.
11) The tiles for our individual types of tennis string are the most
important ones - in choosing a winner, we will place the most weight
on the template for tennis string tiles.
The racket grip tile templates will receive the second most weight in
making our decision. As well, we will need tile templates for our
vibration dampeners, head/wrist bands, head protection tape and sale
