Play Kultur - Please check UPDATE in inspirational section.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We are a non profil organization who work to create a node where we will gather various cultural genres (opera, orchestra, theater, art, dance) and present them on a service. This service is already built - what we need now is a presentation site, a project site where we want to promote the idea behind the service.
-We want to make the idea around our service clear for everyone.
-We want the page to be informative, look stunning and creative.
-We want to get more organizations to connect with us and join us.
-We want to get followers and make our blog posts spread
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
Entertainment & The Arts
What do you have in mind for the style and theme of the web page?
We want you to use one or more of the following Wordpress Templates. This means that you can either use them as a starting point, or make something new from their existing form. We can also accept ideas that are made directly from the template.
We don't wish any old connections to how arts and culture "usually" look and feel. We are searching for a new, fresh look where the previous and old connotations aren't needed. A fresh approach.
We will give extra credit to those who manage to make the front/first page a bit informative too - and not only be based on an image (like so many design themes are).
1) 60 sec explanation video (will be provided)
2) News/Project Blog (based on the blog designs that are already included in the theme)
3) Presentation of key partners in the project (4-6)
4) Attractive, smart listing of the various arts institutions joining the project (15-100)
5) Our ideas about the project
1) Automatic posting to Twitter and Facebook
2) RSS feed for others to pick up news from us
3) Follow/connect to us from other peoples Twitter and Facebook
4) Get in touch with us
5) More? Be creative and suggest some great tools/plugins that could be useful for us!
Since we want the design to be based on a template, we are not looking for completely new design ideas, we are not looking for a number of pages - but rather the skills to adjust and make the theme look as good as possible for our needs.
As we have have chosen the Wordpress Themes on the needs we have and feel that the specifications are supported, we are eager to make this a very quick and fairly simple process.
This means that we are not at all looking for changes where changes are not needed. The default look in the demo is already appealing for us, so we want either of this theme to be our new design base. Feel free to ask more is this is not clear.
What to avoid
We do not wish for any dark red drapes - as in curtains. No "stage" references, no wooden backgrounds, no brushed metal looks.
We are open to both dark and light styles.
We would prefer for you to think about our need to be open to both music (symphonic/chamber/classical/opera) and theater and dance and art.
Do not overthink this. We love the themes provided and would like to see which one could be the best one for us to proceed with. The next step is to code/design/adjust the Wordpress theme of our choice. If you have the skill to do this as well, we will consider this as a great advantage.
We are giving extra credit for speed, simplicity and quick work. This is not a complicated task since the themes are already provided. Check out the images - use some of them or find others you like.
