Designers should design this page first, as I would like to make sure they are on the right track before continuing, so as not to waste either of our's time. I have attached a mockup of the layout I need. Use this as a very very rough draft, I am not committed to location of any elements I have included. Use your expertise as a designer to make layout changes that you see fit. Please keep everything above the line above the fold. I will also need a logo. The call to action button "Apply Now" needs to be a color that stands out. I also need social buttons.
This page is all about the form, so the designer should get users to focus on it, and try to maintain the entire form above the fold. If that means removing elements that are common to the pages, then do so. Or even if that means designing a special header for the page, that is alright too. I've attached the mockup of the page as From.pdf. Again, this is only to show elements needed, I am not committed to the layout. There should be a progress bar though, as this will be a 2-step process.
Content Page With Side Form:
This is the standard content page, along with a form on the right to initiate the application process. All the content pages with be grouped within categories, and as you can see in the mockup Content_With_Form.pdf, the category is Learning Center, and the page is "Credit Tips". Again, I probably sound repetitive, but I really like this was done: http://facilitydude.com/about/ ... Also, use your best judgement on layout, my mockup is just for the items I need.
Content Page Without Side Form:
Same as Regular content page, except there is no form on the right to initiate the application process. The mockup for this page is Content.pdf.
