LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
Economic blog explaining the economic crisis and its potential impact.
Website design is being finalised. Graphs will sit front and center on website. See entry 33 of "Website & Logo Design - Helping to explain the curent economic crisis, $1,200" on www.crowdspring.com.
Maps fill placeholder on front page and will need to integrate with entry 33's color scheme and feel.
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
Tab 1: map of USA (with 3 versions based on specific data)
Tab 2: map of Europe (with 3 versions based on specific data)
Tab 3: map of the world (with 2 versions based on specific data
Tab 4: two columns, each with 3 graphs simple line or bar graphs.
TAB 1: 3D map of USA
3 map of the USA. Once map format is finalized, we'll need a couple of versions of the format to demonstrate how the map would change as data changes. See examples we like below for specific details how the 3D structure will look. The following is great example of the different heights for each (province). The example is from Canada but we'd want it applied to the USA http://www.geocities.com/stevejford/Prem...
Graph background to include mechanism for visitors to change the year (e.g. see sliding bar on the following http://www.cnn.com/SPECIALS/2009/map.eco...
Graph to include mechanism to highlight particular states and display pop up or blow out with specific data for that state. For example:
State Deficit December 31st $20 billion,
Fall in House Prices since June 2006 -15%"
TAB 2: 3D map of Europe
Same as Tab 1 but with map of Europe. Must include all members of EU.
TAB 3: 2D map of world
Need to communicate the following:
a) level of debt vs savings of different countries (e.g. US & UK heaving indebted, China and Saudi Arabia with significant foreign reserves)
b) Unemployment levels in selected countries
TAB 4: 4 pairs of graphs arranged vertically in two columns
Pair A) GDP 1929 - 1939 and 2007 - 2017
Pair B) Unemployment 1929 - 1939 and 2007 - 2017
Pair C) Stock market (in 2009 dollars) 1929 - 1939 and 2007 - 2017
Pair D) Total debt (as a percentage of GDP) 1929 - 1939 and 2007 - 2017
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
General public with moderate to low financial literacy wanting to understand the economic crisis and how it will impact their financial futures. Focus on baby boomers seeking a historical perspective.
Designed to provide an interactive mechanism for visitors to immediately engage with the site so they bookmark it and they recommend the site to their friends
WE LIKE THESE DESIGNS:
The surface of each "state" will vary depending on the data inputs. For example, the surface of the states in the attached map are at different levels.
To keep the design elegant, in our map, all of the states in the map should be the same color as is in the following
Except, when a site visitor clicks on their particular state in which the state should change to a different color as in the following http://www.softsia.com/screenshots/usama...
The bird eye angle on this map looks about right (though the height of each state will need to be greater so we can show differentiation between states) http://www.geobrush.com/samples/USA2.gif
The following is great example of the different heights for each (province). The example is from Canada but we'd want it applied to the USA http://www.geocities.com/stevejford/Prem...
WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE (or we don't want to see) THIS IN OUR DESIGN:
Elegant and intuitive design. People must be able to immediately understand the graph (i.e. within seconds). Legends should be well identified and easy to understand. The data driving the "graph map" will be communicating a sufficiently complex image so colors should be kept to 1 or 2 colors.
We're open to dark or light background - just don't want it too "busy".
