This designer worked very hard to accommodate all my requests for revisions. He is very skilled at distressing images, making them look old and a bit worn, which is exactly what we were looking for. I would definitely use him again for a similar project.
How Dan112003 started their web page design journey
Who are you known as?
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
HavanaSpring.com is a forthcoming, single-issue website dedicated to publishing original and aggregated media content via a powerful network of citizen journalists. Via this portal, it is the mission of Havanaspring.com to provide real time, accurate, and credible news and information from the complex, nascent, and rapidly-evolving media market in Cuba. Our target audience is both English-speaking visitors from around the globe, and Spanish-speaking visitors from Latin America.
HavanaSpring.com is an independent digital media project led by journalists and technologists, exploring a new model of storytelling around a global crisis. Our goal is to build a better user experience of the story by adding context to content, using the latest digital tools of the day. Over time the hope is to add greater clarity, deeper understanding, and more sustained engagement to the global conversation. In this case, Cuba will be the focus of our news and information sharing efforts.
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
What do you have in mind for the style and theme of the web page?
Retro; art-deco; romantic; classic. Theme should mirror the colors, images, and themes in the attached images, reflecting back to 1920s (pre-Fidel) Cuba.
Theme must incorporate Cuban flag colors (red, white, and blue).
HEADER ONLY: I am looking for design of a website theme, accompanied by logo, font, and color scheme. The primary task will be the completion of the header, which should incorporate some of the illustrations in the attached JPGs. The attached JPGs are in the open domain, and may be reproduced in full for the website.
((The website will be ultimately developed by my internal Drupal coder.))
What to avoid
Avoid pictures of Fidel Castro, Che, or other modern political figures (US or Cuba).
Please take a look through the attached JPGs. A combination; or a variation of these themes, fonts, logos, and colors will be the perfect foundation for my website design.
