Thanks for considering submitting your entry for our design contest.
We're looking to do a massive overhaul of our website -- a redefinition in how we communicate online with our member base and potential members. We're really looking to move ahead to more of a social attitude -- and speak to our member base with more of a conversational style ... friendly, warm, inviting.
With the amount of information that we have, it's easy to be on information overload. This is EXACTLY what we're trying to avoid. There's a fine line between simplicity and overload -- we want to sit on that line.
A few things of note :
(1) Because we're looking to go with a social attitude, we would like to prominently call out social media links -- Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn should show up on all pages in some manner.
(2) We're also looking to cross-post excerpts from our blog, RealTime. The design should incorporate this without being overbearing.
(3) Sunmark FCU and RealTime logos are attached to this brief.
We'll provide feedback throughout the design process. Thanks again and good luck!
