01/09/2013 Update to Design Brief:
All Finalists, thank you for all of your submissions, the quality has been very high. Please note, for the final submissions the Banner/Buttons need to be PNG files of the size and shape of the sample attached (footer-banner-1).
Please also note, THIS IS IMPORTANT, the actual size of the graphic area is smaller than the pixel size of the banner/button PNG. That is, the PNG is 322x123 pixels but the viewable graphic is smaller. This means there a has to be some transparent space
Some of you have designed the viewable graphic small than the original THIS IS FINE. Actually I think the originals are slightly too wide and the gap between them is slightly too small.
I hope this is not too difficult to follw, if you need a clearer explanation, please let me know.
Best of luck with the next stage.
Three new banner/buttons for the bottom of the http://www.intrafocus.com home page.
The existing three banners no longer match the graphics or aspirations of the website. The buttons in question are:

The banners are made up of a jpeg graphic which is then overlaid with text. The text is not physically part of the graphic. The text position cannot be changed but the font size and colour can. The font type can be changed but I would prefer it was not.
The background colour is currently #444444. This can be changed. The website was modelled on http://www.ibm.co.uk, take a look at that to see a different background colour and style of banners (I would not suggest you take your inspiration from there though)
The banners should be corporate in look and feel. They should not include images of people. The text should remain the same, but if you have a better way to say the same thing then please feel free to do so.
The final deliverable should be the three jpeg graphics without the text overlay, however, while presenting your designs I need to see the text in place.
