We have a local community directory website that is due to be launched in a few weeks. Is is called "searchmacarthur" (macarthur being the local area) and will include a local yellow-pages style directory with video, articles, promotions, classifieds, formus, etc.
I have attached a sample image of the current site, minus the header and logo.
We are seeking a modern logo (for "Search Macarthur"), as well as a friendly/warm, clean/modern looking header and top nav/button bar that fits with the "community" idea. Logo will need to be included somewhere in the header.
In addition to the logo, we will also need two other areas worked seamlessly into the header where we can display:
1. Small photo images from around the district. These will be active and fade in and out through a cycle.
2. A small text section that will cycle through current events or notices. This will be shown in 8 Point Arial Font, and example of which has been included in the attachment.
For the navigation buttons, would be good if these could also be integrated into the header somehow. We would consider having small icons before the button text images to represent the each buttons name if it went well with the design.
The existing "Find By" bar needs to remain nice and prominent in the site.
Width of the site is 985px. We would really like a header that has the appearance that it goes out as wide as the monitors resolution, with the color of the header blending down the sides of the sites main content. I have included an example to show what I mean. You will see in this example that they have an image that seems to blend into the background that runs down the whole page. The way the photos could potentially be displayed inside a familiar snapshot style frame in the header is also a nice look.
Please note that the existing colours of the site you see in the attached screen shot are still flexible. We do however quite like the current blue/green colors.
If you also have the skill to integrate the design into our site, we would be interested in you doing so.
Successful applicant may also be required to design a rewards card, business card and other marketing material later.
Thank you for taking the time to consider this project.
