This new website, http://www.higheredexperts.com, is targeted to web and marketing professionals working in universities and colleges based in the US and Canada.
The main goal of this website is to provide professional development and training to this target audience mainly via fee-based webinars. The website will also offer free news, resources and memberships to a very simple social networking community for people working in adminstrative positions in higher education.
LOOK AND FEEL:
The logo and the icon were chosen in a design contest launched last week on Sitepoint:
It should be the base for the visual identity of the new website. The template design has to incorporate the logo, the icon and their colors. Background should be white.
The whole design should look professional but fresh.
3-column design (fixed or fluid width -- whatever looks best)
Navigation scheme has to be list-based (see HTML template example for ids to use: http://www.higheredexperts.com/hee_template.html )
