Number of pages needed:
2 – Home Page & 1 Discipline page (Environment & Energy, Geotechnical, Building Science or Construction Materials).
Looking for a clean looking website. Should be simple, easy to see what you need. Lots of “white space”
The current site is too dark, and the functionality is limited.
Colours: Levelton blue is R=0, G=56, B=168; but we would also like to introduce new colours that would match this blue.
Font: We use Arial internally for our general documentation, but we would like to see different fonts being used... but as long as it is a common standard font that can be found in word.
Other than our logo, we use a swoosh on our website/documents. We are flexible in that we could use the swoosh or use another type of “look”.
We also have a tag line that can go on the main page (or not): Challenges inspire us.
For the home page we would like to see a rotating banner that either happens automatically or the user scrolls by clicking on side arrows.
The banner could be 1 way to enter into each area of the website. For example: Each section of the rotating banner would include: About, Services, Careers, News & Events, Projects, Contacts. Or tabs, see “websites for inspiration” below for more of an explanation.
Have tabs/text along the top of the page that would be in the same order as the banner.
Eventually, we would like to see social media tags to be added on this page, so we would need a spot for this eventually (probably just Facebook and YouTube).
Call to action spot: Contact Us – this would like to our contacts page.
Requires a website map
A section under the rotating banner that would have a blurb, maybe our tagline or the paragraph that goes along with the tagline:
Challenges inspire us.
We are market leaders and innovators, providing project management and state of the art technology.
We are a team of experienced and professional engineers, scientists and technologists with multi-disciplinary backgrounds with a flair for practical applications.
Levelton is future-focused and committed to service excellence.
I picture this being a 2-column page:
Have a left hand column (1/4-1/3 of the size of the page) that would list the areas of this particular discipline, and make these links to their own pages.
On the right column (2-3-3/4 of the page size), have a rotating banner that would showcase approx 3 projects.
A section under the rotating banner would have a general blurb about the discipline
