What do you have in mind for the style and theme of the web page?
- Modern, appealing, state-of-the-art website in line with all the latest web standards. It needs to be comparable to the websites of other top research institutes (see list at the end) but also clearly differentiated.
- It needs to be in line with the FMI brand and CI/VI.
- Focus on the desktop version of the website (keep in mind that the winner will work on tablet and mobile version in a 1-1 project so we have a fully responsive web design).
- Language of the website: English only
- Homepage requirements:
- Some beautiful moving images at the top (final images will be provided by FMI)
- One or more text sections (such as mission statement, facts & figures, etc…)
- Maybe highlight of one or several key sections from the website
- Latest news
- Latest publications
