LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
The Sara Miaza Foundation, is a grantmaking foundation that supports initiatives that strengthen communities through enriching culture, championing education, and improving quality of life.
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
We need a design completed for our new website. We have worked with a consultant to develop our site map and wireframes, but need help with the look and feel of the site-- colors and the like. The attached files include these items. The site will eventually be built using Drupal or Wordpress, so keep that in mind.
Size should be optimized for 1024x768
**Do not feel tied in to these wireframes.** If you think there are better ways to do it, please go for it.:)
We need a homepage 4 different page templates designed-- a homepage and three other page types to accommodate different content. There is a .psd file attached that is already set up with each one of these page types outlined. The wireframes are complete, except for one.
Here is a summary:
Homepage (wireframes complete)
Page Type 1: General Content (wireframes complete)
Page Type 2: Featured Stories (wireframes complete)
Page Type 3: Artifact Gallery (wireframes need work). For this page we will be showing images of things of interest which will include descriptions or more information about the images. We are not sure of the best format of presenting this, so would like your thoughts.
There will also be three different type of widgets that should be modular and able to fit into the general content page. These should be related but not identical in appearance. They are:
Featured Work (which will highlight work of grantees)
News & Announcements (which will highlight deadlines and news)
See Also (which will link to related content)
On the homepage, there is one primary image, and then three secondary spaces for content from within the site. Again --- don't be tied to the wireframe if you don't want.
OUR MAIN GOALS FOR THE SITE ARE:
To more effectively engage with highly qualified grant-seeking organizations.
To build support around the work of the foundation and its grantee organizations.
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
Grant-seeking organizations (Providing content for this audience will help the foundation to establish and support relationships with the grant-seeking organizations whose work is in alignment with the mission and values of the Sara Miaza Foundation.)
The general public (Providing content for the general public will enable the foundation to build support for its work and the work of its grantee organizations.)
WE LIKE THESE EXAMPLES:
Like the palette and overall design. Very nice. Layout is interesting.
Like it, and it still works with a CMS
The site is so-so, but the gallery is a possibility for the Artifacts section.
This is very well done all around.
Like this, and how the large main image bleeds to the top.
Really cool site, and very clean.
Nice how the colors change in each section. Nice palette. Clean.
We like the color palette somewhat
This is interesting, but I don't know if it would be right for us.
We like the color palette and the general design. Very clean.
WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE THIS IN OUR PIECE:
We need to have the logo and all the elements that are described above.
