This is the first site of a number of websites that we want to use the designers from 99designs for - plenty of future work for the best designers in the coming months - however we need to get this one right first :-)
We require a full redesign of the following site - http://www.thefsi.org/
We need to keep all the pages that are currently on this site. The site will also grow over time so we need the navigation to be scalable which won’t effect the usability and feel of the site. The site will be built to allow small charities to access relevant and leading edge information to support their work, raise more money and have a greater impact on their beneficiaries.
Open brief but needs to have the following requirements:-
Clean, simple, FSI purple and white, professional, safe (transaction wise), friendly, approachable, modern, energetic..
We just want it to be creative and innovative. It needs to feel modern and clean - and very easy to use/read.
Purple and white
Pantone 520 C
The official font used is Verdana, but can use anything that looks good.
Websites we like are in 'requirements' section..
The site will be WordPress driven
Sites we like
http://twitter.com/ - we don't want a login face for the site, but the simplicity, clever use of just posting up words at the bottom to link to is what I like. There really is an element to which we would like our site's clever simplicity to be the thing people talk about.
http://www.antwords.com/ - particularly the word of the week tab at the top and the simplicty of finding exactly what you want on the site.
http://www.apple.com/iphone/apps-for-iphone/ - The easy clean look of their site, but I have taken you to their apps page, because apps really symbolise the easy, clever, modern feel we want to have. I'm throwing this one in for inspiration :-)
http://www.fallon.com/ -.Like the way the site is split with 1/3 on the left signposting and the rest content - looks good and clean and easy to navigate.
On the following link are images that are currently being used in documentation http://www.branchingoutmedia.co.uk/…/graphics/
We initiallly want to choose from a home page and a click through page and then we require the chosen designer to work with us to complete the design process of the site.
Please ask for futher information..
WE DO NOT NEED THIS TO BE A FLASH SITE.
