We are an information security company, launching and are seeking a web developer to develop a new corporate website. We require 3 mockups (preferably in fireworks), from which we will select the final design. The website will primarily be delivered in static html, with the exception of the contact us form, which is to be written in php. Specifications include:
Layout / Structure
The site is to be delivered in W3C compliant html using centralized css for all text and color attributes of the site, such that it can be easily modified in the future.
We’re looking for a homepage that will support the basic “large top header rotating graphic” with 3 smaller columns below. The homepage rotating graphic should be done in html, similar to [url removed, login to view] . The site should be fixed width, such that it is 100% viewable in modern browsers without expanding default browser size.
Background: White - mandatory
Text: Blue, Grey (silver),
Top Bar Menu - Orange
All category pages and product pages should mock the layout here:
[url removed, login to view]
* the oversized middle splash graphic, integrated with the menu is a requirement.
right hand side menus:
We need two separate div classes, similar to the right hand menu (note the blue class and the silver class). Ie “request online demo,” contact sales,” and “related links.
The site will have 7 categories, including:
-News and Events
- Customer Portal
All categories should support (but not mandate) sub-categories. Similar to the menu at [url removed, login to view]
Other pages include: An error handling page for 403s and 404s that follows the site look and feel.
• Developer will need to utilize index files properly insure that there are no direct references to html files (ie – [url removed, login to view] or [url removed, login to view] is acceptable, while [url removed, login to view] is not acceptable).
• Primary Images will be located in a central directory (/images).
• Primary css will be located in a central directory (/css).
We will provide primary logo and product graphics (center etc). All other graphics to support site layout are to be provided by the developer.
[url removed, login to view] - This is probably the closest to what we’re looking for. This is a great looking site. I do not like the changing dimensions from the main graphic to the lower area of the homepage, but we do require it on the sub-pages.
[url removed, login to view] - A good runner up. The rollover functionality in the menus is good. Also, the middle dynamic graphic is good, as it does NOT use flash.
[url removed, login to view] - Good looking site, but needs a smaller middle graphic. Too much real estate used in the middle .Would be better spent on the 3 columns below.
[url removed, login to view] - Great Layout. If the blue box spanned 100%, this would be a contender. As it stands, it seems slightly cluttered.
All images and content need to either be original or unclaimable such that the company can claim copyright to the entire site.
