LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
We are a company composed of seasoned Internet gurus helping pop culture icons and major media and entertainment companies stay cool, relevant and engaging with younger web users. A lot of our work has been for MTV and VH1. Everything we do must be the most exciting, creative, smart and visually stunning possible. After over two years of working on several very large projects we are taking the time to build our own portfolio website.
Here are some of our most cherished projects that will be included within the portfolio: www.NextOrNot.com, www.ShortCircuitz.tv, www.PickYourGameUp.com and www.YoMomma.tv -- please use these in your mockups as needed (thumbnails, entries, etc.)
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
We need the design for a standard portfolio website. It has to display our work in a visually stunning way. We want to let our work speak for itself (i.e. large images) while also giving potential clients a window into our attitudes, thoughts, philosophies and overall creative approach.
The header of all pages should have a large area for our logo and some sort of design around it, like at the top of www.blind.com.
The navigation bar should have the following sections: Home, Portfolio, About Us, Contact Us
The Homepage should mainly feature a creative way to show four to six of our projects in a mostly visual way (i.e. a large image for each). On the Homepage we also want the option of linking to our accounts on Twitter, Flickr, YouTube, etc.
The About Us page should have a large area for text and a section where we can show thumbnails of pictures of our office.
For the Portfolio section there should be one page that shows thumbnails and links to each project as well as the template for the actual project pages. We are definitely looking for some creativity on how the Portfolio page presents each project. We like the simplicity of http://www.blind.com/work and http://www.blind.com/work/commercials/ww... (but we don't need all those details in the right column).
The Contact Us page does not need to be designed since it will look like the About Us page. If page titles use images then obviously we'll need the "Contact Us" title image.
To be clear, we are looking for submissions that include: homepage, about us page, portfolio page and individual portfolio template.
The site itself will be built in basic HTML, there is no need for Flash, drop-downs, AJAX, etc.
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
Senior decisions makers at companies that need to target the youth market and remain on the cutting edge of pop culture.
WE LIKE THESE DESIGNS:
http://briefcase.themedemo.net - we like the template in general but not the specific design
In general we really like neon colors and effects.
WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE (or we don't want to see) THIS IN OUR DESIGN:
We'd like pictures of our office and view to influence and inspire the overall design... but don't take this too literally.
When using our attached logo file do NOT use "strategic web consulting"
Also, the name does not always have to appear beneath our logo, feel free to do what you think is best with our logo image and company name.
