LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:

James Bradley is the author of two New York Times Bestsellers (Flags of Our Fathers, and Flyboys). He has written a third book (The Imperial Cruise) that is scheduled to be released on Nov. 24th, 2009 and is backed by an advertising campaign organized by the publisher.

HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:

Create a four page uncoded graphic design for an author's website. A current draft of the authors website can be viewed at: http://jamesbradley.com/2009site/ - please click around and navigate through this site to get a feel for the content to be included. The purpose of this new site design is to promote the soon to be released new book: The Imperial Cruise. This design project will include the main page and three internal page templates. The three internal page design templates will be used for the following internal pages:

Internal page template 1:

My Story, http://jamesbradley.com/2009site/biograp...

Author, http://jamesbradley.com/2009site/author....

Peace Foundation, http://jamesbradley.com/2009site/jbpf/

Internal page template 2:

The Imperial Cruise, http://jamesbradley.com/2009site/the_imp...

Flyboys, http://jamesbradley.com/2009site/flyboys...

Flags of Our Fathers, http://jamesbradley.com/2009site/flags_o...

Internal page template 3:

Interact with Author (a forum for users to leave comments), http://www.modernoverland.com/interact/i...

OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:

The general public / anyone who can read.

WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE (or we don't want to see) THIS IN OUR DESIGN:

This current website draft (http://jamesbradley.com/2009site/) has been created primarily to gather and format content that will be placed in the new website design that is scheduled to go live on Nov. 17th. While the author has directed some of the design aspects he is open to your creative ideas on how to design the site. Here are a list of some features that the author likes about the current design as well as some features that he feels need to be improved.

Aspects of the current site (http://jamesbradley.com/2009site/) that the author likes:

Main page -

his photos and the images of his three books displayed on the main page

Internal pages -

the three books displayed vertically on the side of the internal pages

Aspects of the current site (http://jamesbradley.com/2009site/) that the author feels need to be improved:

Main page -

the navigation - please suggest a change in the look / location of the navigation

a new font/look for the "James Bradley" and "Pacific Historian" underneath the main photo

a visually pleasing way to communicate the "Just Released," "See reviews and booktour," and quotes related to the soon to be released The Imperial Cruise book

Internal pages -

the navigation - please suggest a change in the look / location of the navigation
