Brand Identity Of The Hyderabad Start-Up Ecosystem by TSICI2 years ago Saritha Keshamoni
What is it about?
Hyderabad is a city of immense growth and possibilities. An example true to this statement is the Hyderabad Start-up Ecosystem and the journey of its evolution over the years. While Start-up culture in the city is at an all-time high, those outside of its boundaries know next to little about it. Most specifically, venture capitalists, angel investors, ecosystem builders and other Start-ups from outside Hyderabad.
Our brief arises with the need for awareness, the need for this untold story to be shared among the rest of the Indian masses. The Government of Telangana, through the Telangana State Innovation Cell, want to kick-start an initiative to make this possible right away.
The idea is to create a report of the city’s Start-up landscape, interlinking it with a glimpse of the Hyderabadi lifestyle and culture to show the best of it has to offer to external investors, fellow Start-ups and other players and pull them into its midst.
What do you need to do?
While the goal is to create a tell-all report, our super forward-thinking government doesn’t want it to look and feel like one. They want a reader to experience the entire essence of the city while reading the report. In short, this report has to be super entertaining and un-report like in how the existing information is portrayed to a user. While the material and contents of the report will be provided, points will be given for creative representation and strong visual balance and composition of the given information.
So this is a call for inquiries for all you amazing designers and creative thinking experts out there. To contribute in creating this 50-page masterpiece of an user-experience manual of the city and its Start-up as well as other trending cultures.
