We are seeking a Web 2.0 homepage design and sub-page for the company blog. The current placeholder web-site is here http://tinyurl.com/6mlb6w . We are open to modifcation of the logo and colors.
Our company has similar capabilities to this company http://tinyurl.com/a5wvb and will be in the same market as several larger companies like http://www.mcafee.com/us/ .
We want to highlight the blog in particular, because that is an area where we have developed some key content and can get the word out about our expertise. We would like to include at least one snippet from the blog postings on the home page. We have some basic content for the other tabs as well. We anticipate that we will hardcode the blog posts rather than using Wordpress in the short-term.
We like the design of this page: http://www.xobni.com/learnmore/ we like the simple layout, lots of white space, the tabs (doesn’t have to be tabs though), and the large graphical buttons. We also like how on this page a visitor can enter their email address to stay in touch. we like the large “Get it now” button but we don’t have a product yet, so maybe we could have a call to action button like that that links to the blog since that is where we will have the best information on the site in the short-term or that allows you to enter your email address to get updates. We will need a place to put a large download button in the future on every page. (but don’t need that yet)
Due to the short timeframe of the fasttrack contest we may need the winning designer to make some modifications as needed to complete the designs of the two pages before the go live date,i.e. the winning design may need to modified slightly for production.
