Put down Eclipse, and show us your Design skills

As a startup, we have our work cut out for us when it comes to positioning, broadcasting, branding, and just simply getting the "CloudSpokes" name out there. We go to numerous conferences every year, from Defrag, to Gluecon, to Dreamforce, to AWS re: Invent, to even Gartner Symposium, and more...

Every single day we're preaching the power of the community, giving presentations, delivering sessions, and showcasing all the amazing work the community creates to anyone who will listen. What we need though, is a proper presentation platform to get it done on. This time, we don't need code, we need design.

We've posted design challenges in the past, but this is likely our first true graphic design challenge. We want to see what this powerful community can create with a little bit of Keynote or PowerPoint, some Pixelmator or Photoshop, and a ton of creativity.

We're not going to limit you to a design schema or a pre-defined color palette, your canvas is clear and it's up to you to decide what's best. This really is no easy task though - creating something polished, while still easy-to-use, is incredibly complicated. 

Good luck, and stay tuned for more design challenges!
