Kilpailun tehtävänanto

I am in the process of building a web site and am struggling to find a good hero image for my home page. The reason its been difficult is bc I'm trying to incorporate a Hippo and a slogan into my marketing site... The name of the site is marketing hippo.com.

The brand colors are blue and white. You can view my logo and a small preview of the site at [url removed, login to view] ... Please keep in mind the sites still under development, so it doesn't represent our company well.

Im looking for a design that includes an image of a hippo, and something that has to do with marketing and/or advertising..
Im open to any and all suggestions you might have.

You can get an idea of marketing hippos services on the demo site. Our clients are small businesses and business owners.

Ideally, we would have a Hero Image with a funny picture of a hippo, a catchy slogan or phrase related to our services (example; "Turning Clicks into Customers in a BIG Way"), consistent branding colors, when combined giving the user a good visual representation of who we are and what we do.

If I could sum up marketing hippo in one sentence, it would be "generating more leads and sales for businesses and their owners".

note; i have a lot of ongoing design work, should we like your work we will have more work to give you... both immediate and future.


UPDATED 7.5.17

Its important that the environment the hippo is in some how ties into "marketing and/or advertising". Unfortunately I don't see those two important elements tying together in many of the submissions. A hippo in a pool or body of water doesn't have anything to do with the marketing or advertising world.

Now a hippo standing in the middle of New York Cities Times Square would make a lot more sense.

For Example, a hippo standing on the sidewalk in New York Cities Time Square surrounded by people walking by, going about their business, and not even noticing the hippo in the middle of the side walk (electronic advertisements in times square play in back ground).

Fitting a hippo into an environment such as this makes a lot more sense.

I hope this helps and gives you a little better clarity on what I envision.

What would be really cool is if it was a footage video of a Hippo standing on a sidewalk in NYC Times Square, while professionally dressed business people walked / flash by with out even noticing the Hippo.
Rather its a video or image, this might be a good vision to start with.

UPDATED 7.6.17
Might I suggest using the following hippo image ... [url removed, login to view] and
latest image listed in the "attached files"

Lets try placing one of these 2 images in a busy city, with lots of people, and advertisements around.
Please make sure the size of the hippo is equal to how it would appear in real life standing next to a person.
Please make sure the final image you send looks as real as possible. I want people who see this photo to believe this was a photo we took in real life.
I prefer the people in the image to be going about their business and not even noticing the hippo. The more business dressed men (suits) in the photo, the better.

I intend to add the "Services" my company offers to the advertisement in the photo.
For example, we'll edit a particular business such as a "Bank of America" advertisement to read "Web Design", which will end up linking to Marketing Hippos web development design page .... [url removed, login to view]

    If you believe this contest was a rip-off, please go to the winning entry and hit 'Report Winner' at the bottom.
    Freelancer will investigate and might not give him his money back.

    The 'winner' has no profile to speak of, no previous activity on Freelancer of any kind, JUST joined Freelancer just like the 'Contest' holder.
    Hmmm... I think they are the same person.
    They are playing a shifty game - mess with too many freelancers and some guy with hacking knowledge/buddies might mess up his site...

    The problem is that all NY Times Square pictures where you can see people faces is Editorial Use only... check on shutter or istock, all is Editorial.

    Its important the hippo is equal in size to a real life person. Meaning if a person is walking by a hippo, the hippo needs to be equal in size as if a hippo was standing next to a human being in real life. A Hippo standing 10 ft above buildings and/or humans is not realistic. I need something that looks as realistic as possible. I need the image and/or video to REALLY look like there's a hippo standing in a crowd of people in a busy city. Do not want it to look photo shopped, or pasted.
