Design Brief for new site
We previously run a similar operation in New Zealand www.makemetop10.com this site is still online if you wish to take a look. This will give you an idea about us. The site was built in New Zealand and was edited using Interspire web edit NX.
We found this to be full of problems when making changes to the site as we don't write HTML. No changes have been made on this site due to the problem we were having with the CMS. So we are first and foremost looking for a good content management system like Word Press that we can edit text and SEO aspects ourself and some promotional sections. If you had a chance to look at our existing site you will have noticed that it looks out of date and is not the image that we need for the UK market. Example- errors when adding links after adding and uploading the links page will disappear altogether.
I would be interested in finding out what changes to the content management system or conversion to Word Press would do for this site including more social media aspects for instance. this will lead to some additional work for our new design partner in the future as we have all necessary login and FTP information for this site.
Site requirements
9 pages in total, 7 accessible from top of homepage via icons/buttons, site map and a links page linked at the foot of first page. Also terms and conditions/privacy etc in PDF documents accessed via links at foot of page.
See attached mock up jpg and PDF for home page text).
Similar format for each page/will take design recommendations into consideration for individual pages.
All pages to be clear and easy to follow in different formats, systems and screen resolutions including widescreen, Windows/Mac, IPad, iphone+ other mobile devices.
Easy to use CMS system for us to edit SEO aspects, Body of text and Headers and promotional sections i.e. similar to headlines as seen in magazine articles or similar to blog testimonial boxes see examples below, possible editing of images. Maybe Word Press is best? but we are open to suggestions.
1 of 7 is a portfolio page showing clients thumbnails and an easy to edit table showing SEO achievements, position for keyword placement etc that can be edited by us.
One page will be a blog page similar layout ideas appreciated.
All pages to be well designed. In fact we want all work to look HD- High definition in appearance and modern in design & functionality. SEO editing is a key function of each page.
Approximately 20 images used throughout site most will be supplied but will consider any alternatives you may suggest from clip art sites you have deals with.
Looking to probably go with a white background with all images and text looking crisp and modern. Title bar probably just a bold colour with our URL overlayed Examples of sites we like will be included showing which aspect we like so you can get a feel of what we are after.

Text and images to follow for the rest of site once a partner has been established.

Sites we like
A nice clean crisp looking website clear and to the point I like header bar and contact card and social media follow me icons at the foot of the page. All text is clear buttons are clear and easy on the eye http://www.seo.uk.com/

An nice simple site with a white background and maybe a little dull for what we are looking for but simple non the less and uncluttered http://parkwell.co.uk/

An word press website that makes use of the whole page http://www.gaijininternational.com/

An word press website that makes use of the whole page also but I really like the testimonial bottom left of page I would like something like this throughout site for sound bites etc or for showcasing special offers http://www.friskdesign.com

This is a consultancy site I like. Its simple, I think a word press style format I really like the flash media with changing sound bites is this something that can be edited by us if we had something similar ? http://www.punchcomms.com/pr-consultants.html
