Business Writer got their new web page design by running a design contest:
Breath new life into an old WordPress website.
Check out Business Writer's Web page design contest…
I am a business writer targeting a B2B audience. Target industries: professional services (accounting firms, law firms), financial services, nonprofits. I write social media copy, articles, websites, brochures, annual reports, etc.
Website Redesign Criteria – Write Speak Sell DESIGN MUST be done for a WordPress platform. Do not need responsive design for mobile viewing. 12 point sans serif typeface for copy. San serif typeface for blog post headlines (proportionate size to content type face). HOME PAGE Color palette: - Keep red as primary color but not so dominant Masthead: - Keep existing logo and tagline “Profit from business writing that sells” Dimensions: - 1100 pixels wide (total). Include one right sidebar, 360 pixels wide. - Excerpts from four latest blog posts as shown on current website Content: - My three primary service offerings, as shown in the top 3 widgets on current site, are Blogs and Social Media, Employee Engagement, Branding. I want these to stand out but not necessarily where the widgets are now. Possibly cut down content under the headers for these widgets/sections and keep “read more here.” Need to be above the fold. Sidebar: - search box - subscription box (smaller and new incentive “Repairing the Elevator Speech to Burnish Your Personal Brand”) - social media icons that people can click and go to my social media networks (as on current website) - social media share bar across the bottom of each excerpt - About Jeannette Paladino - Recent posts - Categories - Contact us today (footer) Navigation tabs: - Keep all tabs SECOND PAGE - The home page side bar should repeat as it does on current website. Need template so I can create the content in the left main section of the page as shown on current website for additional pages. I have not located any websites that I thought were fabulous. I'd like a nice clean look. A softer background. However, I'm in marketing and communications so I want the site to be impactful. Right now the red is too dominant but I don't want a wishy-washy, dull site either. I did list one website below. But I'm not sure it will be that helpful in creating a design for my site.
See my above description. Page one is home page, Page two is template for all other pages.
What to avoid
Please do not use any drop down menus. Do want a grey or black background. I would consider a subdued pattern.
I have specified the type size but not the type face. Please choose as a design element.
