Traffika would like a Facebook Timeline Cover Photo Design created.
Image to be 850 x 315 and have a matching profile image of 180 x 180.
Our current website is http://www.traffika.com.au, we are having our site re-developed and re-branded so you are free to be creative with a new facebook design, it does not have to match, however, it must incorporate the Traffika green colours, the stop light logo and our font is Neo Sans.
As an Internet marketing firm we will be optimising clients Facebook Timeline Pages so we need to be able to portray best practice and show a 'World Class' design on our own page.
We would possibly like to work with the winning designer for our client designs in the future.
There are some restrictions from Facebook around what the cover photo can and cannot include that you need to be aware of, being:
Your cover photo must not include:
Price, offers or purchase information, such as “40% off” or “Download it at our website.” (ie: Don’t use it as an advert).
Contact information such as a website address, email, mailing address, or information that should go in your Page’s “About” section.
References to Facebook features or actions, such as “Like” or “Share” or an arrow pointing from the cover photo to any of these features.
Calls-to-action, such as “Get it now” or “Tell your friends.”
Covers must not be false, deceptive or misleading, and must not infringe on third parties’ intellectual property so be extra careful with copyright and claims.
Facebook’s preference appears to be cover photos with as little text as possible which is consistent with Facebook’s move towards becoming more visual as a whole. They do not want you to put details that should be in your about box or on your info page in your cover photo. They also don’t want you using it for free advertising and, very importantly, you must not mention or hint at any Facebook features, such as asking non fans to like your page.

I noticed that no one is using words in the image, it is important for people to understand what we do at a glance so words could be a good way to do this? I updated the brief to describe what we do in simpler words:
Perhaps a word cloud could work:
Of course with strong green and our logo / tagline in there?
Or a word cloud depicted on an ipad?
Just thoughts ....
I like the strong green themes we are getting, thanks guys.
