Young, fresh, corporate, sharp image Established but not old-fashioned Needs to be engaging and interesting Clean, minimalistic, easy navigation, simplicity Dynamic and Responsive website Will be good to see some moving elements, and icons, buttons etc Want it to be a logical flow to find the information they need, not make it hard for users to find a simple answer. The website needs to showcase testimonials and case studies as a consistent theme throughout the entire site. We'd like this to integrate across all pages whether it be video, text, images, stories, studies, comments and colours. Happy to see what you can do to bring this to life...
A Main scrolling landing page, with additional scrolling pages for each of the categories below. Below are the Main Areas (pages) We require: > Why Switch? > Case Studies > Products > Contact Us > About us (inside 'Switch') For the Main Home Screen - Hero - Full width image - Text on top (2 types H2 heading, smaller H5 heading) - We’d also like a 'Switch Now' Call to action button/link to appear on all pages (likes to Questionnaire) - we'd also like to include our company purpose in larger text somewhere here. “To bring integrity, clarity and innovative solutions for people in the complex world of Telecommunications” In our company purpose, (above) we mention 'innovative solutions' - and as such we'd like you to incorporate something into the over design theme that proves us as being exactly that, Innovative! We have our own internal coding who will be able to bring this to life, but where we need your help is on the design... Perhaps something different from other websites that shows us as being innovative / pioneers in our industry... we'd love to see what ideas you can bring forward.. Details on the Pages # Why Switch? ( About mixed with ) How we do it: Services: 4 types - start-up, relocation, expanding, mature # Case Studies Holder (List) (various types) - 3 Types of (Major, Med, Regular) - We want 3 Major, 5 Medium, 10-20 Regular - Case studies to appear throughout entire website. - We want the case studies to address all of the pain points for the potential customer. They should answer their questions for each area of pain/need. We really want the Case Studies / testimonials to be a 'key' feature of our new website as we intend for this to be a powerful tool for generating interest, and converting lead into customers. We'd like the case studies to be integrated throughout the entire website. # Products - Voice (space for detail on the each of the different products) - Mobile (space for detail on the each of the different products) - Internet (space for detail on the each of the different products) - Cloud (space for detail on the each of the different products) # Contact Us - maybe include a map and our contact numbers etc. #About Us (inside Switch) Who we are (culture, edifying, professional, address some of the questions that people will be wondering when they are trying to find a new provider) Different Way of working: teams of 3 Our Team – area to show who all the staff are / pics and short bio Company Purpose (see attached pdf) Our Values – (see attached pdf) Our Space – (see attached images for inspiration) Other information: We want them to know what they need via reading how we do it differently, our values of integrity and honesty, reading what we did for other businesses. Solving problems….fix their issues so that they can be more successful Small teams = consistent
What to avoid
Flamboyant or outrageous use of colours or images Too much text Fancy intro page that hinders you from getting to the actual website Pop ups Conflicting colours schemes Cheesy smiley face pictures Lets not go with a website like this: http://miamidesign.com.au/website/ Too much animation Too many moving parts Confusion
We are telling businesses that we are providing them with innovative solutions, it is crucial that the website demonstrates that in some way. We would like the website to stand out against other standard designs. We want our website to be a reflection of who we actually are - team, culture, approach, personality etc. Fun place to work - reflect that in the website We also require a Pattern Library. e.g. http://ux.mailchimp.com/patterns/ or http://demo.patternlab.io/ Components like: grid systems, typography, all form elements, tables…. We will be building a questionnaire so grid system and form elements are important. We would also like a few module sections that could live on any number of pages. Examples would be: Quote/Case Study callout. Product Highlight Row. Big Number callout, Stats. Much like Infusionsoft.com Logo Panel to show off client base.
