feng.tien got their new wordpress theme design by running a design contest:
Create our new Math & Minds Blog Design
Check out feng.tien's WordPress theme design contest…
We are an adaptive math learning software company serving the PreK-8.
We'd like to see something that's simple, readable, and have multiple areas to share our other content. This blog design should be narrower than our current design. It should have some of the same elements, but we're looking for something new. Please stick to our brand colors (links below) It should be designed for responsiveness.
The title of the blog is called "math & minds", that should be in the hero image. Both pages must be responsive for: 768 x 1024 (tablet) 320 x 568 (mobile) 1366 x 768 (laptop) 1920 1080 (monitor) Blog home page - Hero image for the blog at the top - Button to sort by most popularity or chronologically - Large box for users to sign up to newsletter, above the fold - Posts are listed in 1 column - Pagination navigation at the bottom - Navigation to view categories - Maximize use of space to promote other content, but still not overwhelm users. - Each blog should show: Main featured image (some blog posts won't have a featured image, so make sure it displays correctly when there's no featured image, title, date, author, category, and short description (250 characters with spaces), read more button. Single blog post - Social media buttons, we're using https://www.addtoany.com. - Related post on the sidebar and footer - Box to promote latest content download - Box to promote webinar and events - Top should show: featured image, date, author - Blog author's bio with picture in footer, we're using https://wordpress.org/plugins/starbox/ - Need to know what styles look like for H1, H2, H3, strong, and blockquote.
What to avoid
The content area should not be as wide as our main website. The main content area should not be more than 720px. Entire body wrapper with sidebars should not exceed 1200px. Use our brand colors (follow what colors we're currently using for links and text on the website). Use elements that are in our brand guidelines. We'd like to see the design that uses a different font that is more readable like Lato (just an example) and with our brand font (Proxima-Nova Condensed). The design should have our main navigation, but it could be redesigned IF it's not possible with the narrower body wrapper.
This design does not have to match our current design, but should take in some elements from our print branding guildlines.
