How John O'Donoghue started their web page design journey
We are a Caribbean based recruitment portal. Currently we are looking to update our look and feel. Our existing site has been in place 5 years. It's time to bring it up to speed whilst maintaining its cool, simple user friendly inter activity.
therefore there is plenty of work on offer once the homepage designer is chosen.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
All job seekers in Jamaica the Diaspora and the world!
We initially went to http://www.evolution.ie to redesign our look and feel as well as the underlying functionality. They have brought the design to a certain level but advised us to seek specialists for the design work. Evolution.ie will be our supervisory partners in this project and will assist in building in the 99design finished product into our current functionality.
2/ main colours blue and orange
3/ design should easily guide the eyes to read across the site from left to right - should not be fragmented leading to the eyes jumping randomly about
4/ should have a glossy look
5/ should remain faithful to the brand - Splash
6/ simple design
7/ easy on the eyes to read
8/ Allow for existing and newly developed functionality (please note that priority should be given in terms of how a reader's eyes are drawn, to the placement of the new corporate events functionality that will be included, over the social events section - this may mean putting the corporate events section to the left hand side given a left to right eye read sweep, or placing the social events section further down.)
9/ the advertising boxes currently on the left hand side have to have equal size and roughly equivalent prominence as these are paid for by clients. It may be possible to have adverts on the right hand side also (or somewhere else including underneath)
10/ please read the attached file also
Number of pages
The homepage should accommodate the various functionality on display including the new functionality (corporate and social events along with room for google ad words) on the test site. Once we are satisfied with the work the successful designer will be asked to build all other pages.
