We are looking for a new graphic that will show iText as a software platform.
The platform is an important graphic, showing that nothing is possible without this piece.
The platform allows for data to be translated into PDF documents and vice versa, PDF documents to be translated to data (may be done in a circular fashion perhaps), but all of this is only possible with the iText 7 platform. This should be interesting, eye catching and similar to an infographic.
Then on-top of the platform are our add-on icons, attached to this contest. We like these add-on icons and are looking for them to be added to your platform design.
I like to think of them as building blocks, that build on top of the platform (legos are often a way I describe this). But there need to also be a more infographic section on how data is processed in the platform of the building blocks. You could visualize this with a base platform, with some data flowing to document and back(or data binary and text) and then a more obvious visual on top- with building blocks with the icons for our products in them on top.
A software platform is not easy to visualize, we are not looking for oil rigs or anything of that nature, we are looking for something that will allow viewers to clearly understand that this is a software platform that supports the add-on functions and the movement of data to PDF and PDF to data. We also are not looking for a graphic that resembles our old graphics- as they do not properly showcase a platform.
I am happy to give feedback on designs if you have any questions or thoughts.
I have also attached a few ideas, and a sketch of a basic concept idea below to help describe what we are looking for.
