SpectrumEM got their new web page design by running a design contest:
SpectrumEM, an Innovative Software Startup Needs a Cutting Edge Web Site!
Check out SpectrumEM's Web page design contest…
We are SpectrumEM LLC, an innovative emergency management software company that will change the way emergency management is practiced. Our tagline is "Full Spectrum Emergency Management." We sell software as a service (cloud computing) to emergency management organizations in every phase of emergency management (mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery.) Initially we will focus on the United States and North American agencies. A typical customer would be a city, county, or state Office of Emergency Management. FEMA, as a federal level agency, would be the biggest customer we could have. There are also many smaller non-government organizations that could utilize our software.
Nothing yet, we need your designs!
This is where I want to see what you can come up with, my last contest for our logo got us incredible results, don't be afraid to pitch new ideas. Conceptually, we want convey the ideas of collaboration, recovery and a suite of software (represented by the hexagon elements in our logo perhaps?) I'd like to see designers start with our logo and see what it inspires in them. It is predominantly blue, but with elements of green and orange. This elegant design should be reflected in the website color selections, and in the overall theme. Our tagline "Full Spectrum Emergency Management" should also be incorporated into the design. Hexagons (part of our company logo) should be incorporated into the site, but with subtlety, overuse can look like "chicken wire."
1. A unique and innovative "home page." Your creativity has am opportunity to shine here, we're going to shy away from telling you to use specific design elements and see where your talent takes you. We will of course offer feedback and ideas on design elements if needed. 2. About Us Page - This will be a basic bio of the company and two bio pictures of the founders. We will need room for plenty of text here. There will be 2 comprehensive founder bios and a paragraph about the company. 3. "Join EM Innovators" - This is a marketing effort targeted at potential early adopters and this page needs to look like an exclusive club. Your design should make people want to be a part of this "club." A web form here for contacts/lead generation is needed. We will develop more text for your use as the contest progresses. 4. "Contact Us" this will be a typical web form with text boxes for an email message contact, we will also need areas for a local number, a fax number and an 800 numbers contact emails etc.
What to avoid
We want to avoid cartoon-style elements. There is this trend of "South Park" looking websites, we want to avoid that. Avoid clutter. Professional, innovative, and brand identity are what we're looking for.
I have attached our company logo. The "simplified" file is the logo we use when the image is reduced and the elements become cluttered. If you are going to use a small logo, use that version. I have included the font file used for the company name in the logo/ I will have some photographs for our "about us" page in a few days. If your design needs photos of Emergency Management centric photos, I can get some form shutterstock etc for our use.
