We are building a brand new site and are in need of a simple retro influence design for our website. The name of site will be NewsletterMoxie.com (logo attached), and we are thinking of an early 60s feel. Think Madmen TV show on HBO, think Kennedy-esque, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, mid century furniture, etc.
We want a clean, sleek, sexy, smart feel with a nod to the early 60s and modernism.
We are looking for simple, simple, simple. Most pages will have 3 – 7 paragraphs of content. Nav bar will be across the top, logo is static at the top for each page - anxious to see what people come up with. We would like to see what elements of our logo could be incorporated here, or if that even makes sense.
We want a clever looking web site that also works to build trust and show a tech-savvy, but hip vibe.
We want to see our home page and one additional page with text (uploaded). We also want to see additional retro images we can use on the additional pages we will be posting. Each page on the site will have slightly different background artwork, but all with the same Logo, nav bar and layout, and all with same theme as described above.
Very busy small business owners who want to work with a hip, progressive marketing company.
We see this site as a billboard that can be understood easily at first glance, and propel the visitor to dig deeper.
We want to see our home page and one additional page with text (samples uploaded). We also want to see additional retro images we can use on the additional pages we will be posting. Each page on the site will have slightly different background artwork, but all with the same Logo, nav bar and layout, and all with same theme as described above.
Pages should be set up to fit on a grid for a content management system. Please see the uploaded pages for reference to Logo, Nav Bar, and page titles. In addition to the blocks, we will need a sidebar block (not pictures in any samples) for administrative tools.
To help with design, please keep in mind that the site will be built on basically a layering structure, all content in one layer, all structure in the html layer, all design in a css layer on top of the structure layer, and all behavior in a js/query layer on top of that. If you have questions on this, please submit.
