LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
I am responsible for content management of a small digital archive of photos, scanned documents, audio files, flash files, and a few video files.
Site title: Megaprojects New Media
The theme of the content is "Megaprojects" and the content has to do with people living on landscapes where big construction projects come in and change things (e.g. dams, highways, powerplants). The images and audio are not really "about" the construction projects, as much as of the people and the landscapes who are affected by them, and their stories.
I do multimedia design, but I'm posting this job because I'm interested in finding someone with an innovative approach to things that can spur other visions and help with the technical vision of how to accomplish it. Anyone?
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
A website that will be the front page. This front page will link to about 7 already existing flash-based sites that feature multimedia compositions of the photos, audio, video, etc. These 7 other sites don't need to be designed -- the front page does. In addition to pointing to the 7 other sites, the front page must draw from the digital archive of photos, audio clips, etc.., in a random way, so as to give the visitor to the front page a taste of the content inside.
This job requires the following: (a) a site that is clearly a pointer site, pointing to the 7 (or so) other sites; (b) a site that visually displays and plays random bits from my digital archive to give a taste of what's in the other sites (jpg photos and documents, mp3 audio clips, maybe flash bits, maybe other stuff); (c) you need to show me technically how it does this -- specifically how I would add my digital archive content to the bits that are randomly displayed. A key part of posting this design is that I need to be able to (in flash or otherwise) execute the site's design.
The other sites that this page would point to are in flash, so that's what occurred to me as a format, but I'm quite open to alternatives.
My key problematic here: How to (aesthetically and technically) display the bits while keeping it clear as a front page.
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
WE LIKE THESE DESIGNS:
Here's an excellent example of displaying many pieces of information, but I don't necessarily like this as a design direction, since I wouldn't need to display as many random bits as this...plus I need to display more than just dots (images, play sounds, etc.)...PLUS I would need my 7 (or so) links to be more clearly displayed as a key feature of this site (it is after all a front page).
If anything else would be helpful that I haven't touched on here, please let me know.
