How abroad101 started their web page design journey

Summary

Abroad101 is a web start-up company targeting students who study abroad, their parents, the universities from which they travel, and the companies that run the programs they attend to foster a safer, well-researched, and more meaningful experience abroad.

Our content will be largely user-generated. We will include standard “Web 2.0” social networking functionality, such as profiles, messaging, and sharing information.

We want our website to feel very “Web 2.0”, as described on the page http://www.webdesignfromscratch.com…-guide.cfm. We like minimalism, cleanliness, white space, and simplicity. Our website should be easy-to-use and easily navigable. We hope our users will use our search box as the primary vehicle for navigating and finding content on our website.

We do not think of ourselves as creative experts. While we are hoping to find a design that well represents our personal vision and expectations, we hope our creative designer will take the appropriate creative license in helping us determine how our website should look.

We also have some flexibility with our logo, if you want to take a stab at modifying it.

Please view this file for more details about what we are looking for: http://www.abroad101.com/design_request_doc.pdf.

The document is very specific. However, we do not mean to discourage simple, flexible designs that you think we can manipulate to fulfill our specific needs. We will respond to entries with feedback so that you can better understand our needs.

We are also looking to spruce up our logo- make it more " Web 2.0" - sleek, shiny (have a reflection effect), modern - feel free to take a stab at modifying it. We may throw in a $100 bonus if we go with a new logo design.

This company is being formed by three partners heavily involved in the web start-up industry. If we love your work, we will likely try to hire you for future projects!

Please contact us with any questions: contact@abroad101.com.
