New design needed for a popular Food website
Check out micfur563's Web page design contest…
Food & Drink
Update: 14/Jan/2014. Thank you to everyone for your excellent designs. I will be picking a short list of 3 designers tomorrow before making a final decision The purpose of this website is to replace the current (old and dated) http://www.irishfoodwritersguild.ie In terms of the function of the new website, it is threefold: - To showcase members and their work - To provide information on our annual awards, with the emphasis on our most recent awards but easy access to past awards information - To promote the Guild in general, provide people with background information on it and demonstrate that we are a dynamic group with active involvement in current food matters (hence the regularly updated homepage) and with affiliations to other organisations These are the pages we need on the website. All these pages should be referenced in the menu system (even though you only need to design 4). * Home [to include site-search function; possibly to include Twitter feed; also possibly to include blog-style section, where current newsy items could be uploaded – or this could be flagged on homepage with teaser, and linked to page elsewhere] *About [Who we are (brief); History; Affiliations / links; How to join] *Awards [About the awards (brief); Previous winners (at a glance, with link to blurb on each); Nomination process and criteria; Current awards; Previous Years’ Awards (drop down menu); blurbs on All Previous Winners (drop down menu)] *Members [At a Glance (full list); links through to Individual Members pages. All Members pages will have the same template] *Archive [News/events; Recipes; Food for Thought] *Contact [single page with contact details/links]
The challenge in terms of design is in creating something that feels dynamic and worth visiting regularly to access the new content (which will be updated regularly), and yet looks clean, inviting and professional on first impressions. The current website is far too dark and drab. We would like a much brighter engaging experience for the users. Key words in our original brief were “more contemporary and appealing in its aesthetic”. There was strong interest in a Twitter/Facebook feed being included on the homepage, and perhaps the homepage also including a section for regularly updated material (recipes, features, news about food-related events etc) – or at least a teaser for this area and link through to it.
* Home [to include site-search function; possibly to include Twitter feed; also possibly to include blog-style section, where current newsy items could be uploaded – or this could be flagged on homepage with teaser, and linked to page elsewhere] *About [Who we are (brief); History; Affiliations / links; How to join] *Awards [About the awards (brief); Previous winners (at a glance, with link to blurb on each); Nomination process and criteria; Current awards; Previous Years’ Awards (drop down menu); blurbs on All Previous Winners (drop down menu)] *Members [At a Glance (full list); links through to Individual Members pages. All Members pages will have the same template]
- Website will be published using Adobe Muse. Anyone who has experience in this will be favoured. - Please design no wider than 920 pixels across in Photoshop - Winning designer needs to provide layered PSD files. Please use good naming conventions for layers and images.
