This site will be the homepage to a mortgage broker recruiting site. To better explain it, it's a site that will allow a mortgage company to recruit top quality agents to their office. We are motivated to create a great product here and feedback will be given freely and often. Please don't hesitate to comment with questions and we can work toward something great.
We want to create a mortgage broker recruiting site for Four Legacies Mortgage.
To get an idea of the type of site we are building, first view a couple examples from a different industry, real estate. Here are three real estate agent recruiting sites that will be similar to our site in purpose (and very roughly in appearance :):
**Warning: Each of these sites has a video that auto-starts. You'll want to pause it upon entering each site.
To reiterate the point of the above sites - this website will be designed for a Mortgage Brokerage to recruit employees (mortgage brokers) to their office. It's an employee recruitment tool, not a way to solicit mortgage applicants.
The domain of this site we are designing will be JoinFourLegacies.com. It's not required to use the word "Join" in the design but if it proves useful to some then please do so. Just please keep the company branding and logo largely intact.
This contest is for a homepage design and the site will eventually be built in Wordpress so there should be space provided for 5 pages of navigation.
Those pages should be:
Are You Qualified?
Because those pages are subject to change (within the CMS), they are provided so we don't have to use placeholder text, but are not set in stone. So while they should be used in mock-up, don't create design elements around those phrases (i.e. a mission logo, a qualified logo) and leave room to allow them to be changed. Navigation could be at the top or on the side - it's up to you - as long as it is flexibile enough to allow changing items.
Other than navigation, there will be the following elements on the homepage:
- Content section. The main portion of the page should be devoted to content TBA. For now please just use placeholder text. We will use Wordpress to develop the content.- A "Contact Adam" section - that should feature information available on this page of the Four Legacies site: http://www.fourlegaciesmortgage.com…p?id=5998- A Free Report section - we aren't sure yet of the free report content, but we want to have a place where people can request it. This wouldn't have a contact form, it would allow them to reach a different page on the site where they could download it. So it should have a report graphic and a headline "Free Report." Then placeholder text and a call to action button.
- Footer: The footer should be a small, horizontally running text based footer that has enough room to feature the menu items above as well as a few others. For the mock-up, you can include Free Report, Privacy and Sitemap in addition to the aforementioned items, making the footer, in order:
Home, Our Mission, Marketing Plan, Are You Qualified?, Contact Us, Free Report, Privacy, Sitemap
The Four Legacies logo is available here in AI format.
The deliverable should be a Photoshop file w/ all the appropriate layers and fonts.
The ability to code it w/ Wordpress would be paid extra and taken into consideration - but it's most definitely not required.
Thanks! I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's creativity.
