Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We are an online guide to independent restaurants, cafes and bars around Universities. We help students find new places to go that are less well known. We are at Exeter University now and will be expanding very soon.
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?
We would like a simplistic, clear theme. White and a light blue are the colours of our logo and should feature on the website design. A large image on the homepage of a bubble in a forest could work. The design is largely up to the designer though and if you feel a different image or look would work better then we would love to see it.
Page 1: Homepage. We want a large clear image with a small amount of text explaining what we do.
Our logo top left. Top right should list the pages of Home, About Us, Hidden Gems, Bucket List, Events, Blogs.
We want our social media icons of Facebook, Twitter and Google+ to feature clearly.
The text on the homepage should be 'The Student Bubble' with a brief description: 'We uncover all the hidden gems for Exeter students. We help you find new places to go by collecting students' favourite independent venues, checking them out and exposing them for Exeter Uni to see!' - This text can be longer or shorter for design purposes.
The homepage could feature some hidden gem venues, i.e afriteo, to reduce clicks. We want users to go straight to the page listing hidden gem venues after going on the homepage.
Page 2: the hidden gem venue. Currently it is this: http://thestudentbubble.com/afriteo/. The page needs pictures of the venue on the left; description on the right with address, number and website link; a map; a Facebook commenting system; twitter and Facebook plugin on the right. Add a venue button should not be there.
These are general descriptions of both pages. If the designer wants to do something very different then we are very happy to look at the designs.
What to avoid
The design will be coded on a Wordpress format with psd2html company so the design must be compatible with Wordpress.
We will need 7 pages designed in total. Home; About Us (not currently on our existing website); Hidden Gems; page when you click on the venue; Bucket List; Events; Blogs. Events and blogs are very similar to hidden gems so it's 5 differently designed pages. After we have picked our designer from the 2 requested designs we will work 1 on 1 for the rest of the designs.
