Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We train financial advisors on the technical aspects of financial planning, especially relating to IRAs (individual retirement accounts). The target audience is the retail financial advisor.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I want an illustration of a financial advisor riding a wave on a surfboard. The wave should be rising up from the left with top of the wave beginning to break toward the right. The advisor would be riding the wave holding a briefcase. The wave represents the coming wave of baby boomers who will be taking their first IRA distributions after 2016. It also just represents the wave of baby boomers going through retirement. It's a $24 trillion market over the next 20 years. Many advisors don't really know the technical rules behind IRAs and their required minimum distributions starting after 2016. For the ones who do. They'll ride the wave. For the ones who don't, they and their clients will wipe out. So the Illustration should be split in two: one side on top should show the advisor confidently riding the IRA wave. The one on the bottom should show the advisor wiping out in the crashed wave of IRAs.
Please tie in the colors of the wave and the beach with the colors of Savvy IRA Planning look and feel. See attached files. Also, the illustration would occupy half of an 6 x 11 horizontal post card. So the dimension of the two panel illustration would be about about 6 x 5.5 inches. The other Hal of the postcard will be for text. This assignment is just for the two panel illustration.
