Tagline: “Collective Research Center (Forschungszentrum)”
Final version should be submitted in fully layered Photoshop format easily convertible into a functioning HTML page.
We already have a Logo (http://www.sfb295.uni-mainz.de/hieg…oSOCUM.gif).
We require a homepage design and one subpage. Submit your design for the homepage first, and we will let you know if we would like you to continue with the subpage.
We like clear designs with a fresh and modern look. No color theme decision yet, but it should match the logo, while we prefer light over dark. We rely on your creativity! Whitespace is key (no heavy news site).
You can see a list of some of my clients favourite example sites here: http://www.sfb295.uni-mainz.de/hieg…ing-socum/.
In order to give you a better direction, I ask you to look at this flyer: http://www.sfb295.uni-mainz.de/hieg…plakat.pdf
This could guide your understanding of our identity and could be a model in terms of color scheme, font choice and overall style. Would be nice to see some entries based on this style.
Nice icons and Web 2.0 features (e.g. RSS) could be considered. We prefer sophisticated over bells and whistles.
Coding could possibly be commissioned later with the winning designer. Keep in mind that we plan to convert it to Wordpress and/or Joomla later (as yet undecided).
Central blocks could be titled:
- Veranstaltungen/Summer Schools/Georg Forster Lectures
Main menu items could be:
Home, Structure, Aims, Members, Events, Publications
- Membership option/area and login form
- Language changing option (German, English)
