LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
Snowball provides full life-cycle web management and currently maintains over 60 business web sites that we designed and developed. All are custom designed and developed sites ranging from entry level to enterprise class across many industries including tourism, industrial, community, and media. Every web site produced is hand-coded by experienced programmers.
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
MONITOR RESOLUTION CONSIDERATIONS
The GUI should be designed to fit on a 1024px wide screen (working width is about 980+/- pixels).
The site will need to fit on a 1024x768 monitor. Height is not critical, however it is expected the design should accommodate vertical scaling/liquid growth as the client adds content - increasing the perceived height of the design.
Only a homepage and a subpage design in either layered PSD or PNG will be required.
MENU / NAVIGATIONAL ELEMENTS
The main menu bar MUST be consistent from the home page to any subpage.
A horizontal or vertical menu bar shall be incorporated into the design. This area will be reserved for the text based dynamic menu (you may use placeholder menu items for design purposes).
The general menu is composed of "Home, About Us, Development, Marketing, " - (the client will be able to add additional items as needed, but this should NOT affect the design, rather the design needs to accommodate dynamic text. The client will need to be able to create up to 5 parent items as a minimum.
A separate area of the GUI should be designed to accommodate the following 'standard pages':
News, FAQ, Contact, Directions, Calendar.
These can be conceits/buttons/calls to action that hyperlink to other pages. (For an example of seeing standard and dynamic menus, please see www.beckleysanitaryboard.org or www.appalachianfestival.net)
Calls to action for documents and visual galleries are not required to be presented on the interface. (This is controlled via the CMS)
COLOR / THEMEING
Color Suggestions: Base the site colors on the colors used within the logo provided. The artist is free to provide his/her own color themes using variations of red, white and blue.
The artist should be as creative as possible while maintaining the type of interface that conveys creativeness, professionalism, and technology. .
Natural text areas or text that is not a graphic when in production should utilize default native families such as Arial, Verdana, Helvetica or other sans-serif fonts.
Stock photos are not to be integrated into the design. They should be able to be removed (and replaced) without affecting any artistic elements of the site.
VISUAL AND TEXTUAL ELEMENTS
The Site shall accommodate an area for allowing the client to display central or header style images devoted to their products and services. The client will upload images that will become the focal point of the interface. These images may either fade in/out OR be selected from a list for random display on each page load.
