  • 7. 7 Logo Creation Logo has been supplied by the client. Design Principles: The Loaves and Fishes Web site will be developed with the following Design Principles in mind: 1. Space: balance between positive and negative 2. Contrast: in the color scheme 3. Repetition: in the elements Design Elements For added repetition, we have decided to continually represent lines of all shapes and sizes. These lines will help divide and define content, add dimension to the pages and will also be present on the buttons. The logo will also be utilized on all pages in some way shape or form. This will help to fully brand the entire site and its corresponding identity pieces as well as add to our chosen Design Principle, repetition. The following elements have also been used in the creation of this document and the Loaves and Fishes (Buffalo) Web site. 1. Concept Map- Used for brainstorming original ideas before presenting the proposal to the intended audience. (Appendix A) 2. Content Outline- Used for organizing and delegating the main topics and subtopics of the Web site. (Appendix B) 3. Design Sheet- Contains the design color scheme, fonts and logo information. (Appendix C)
  • 8. 8 4. Web Page Templates- Used for designing the layout of the general Web pages of the Loaves and Fishes (Buffalo) Web site. The layouts contain title bars and navigation. (Appendix D) 5. Storyboard- Used for mapping out the layout of each page in the proposed Loaves and Fishes (Buffalo) Web site. They include the text, graphics, images, color schemes, navigation, and logo to be used in the final product. (Appendix E) General Design Considerations Simplified Content: In order to simplify our content and make it more appealing, we decided to use drop-down menus and keep each page to a maximum of 3 paragraphs. The navigation will be legible and positioned in a standard position on every page (Appendix E). An external style sheet will help to maintain consistency on every Web page. Inviting Feeling: Our color scheme was carefully chosen to fully represent the organization. We also decided to use a graphic on each page to also invoke repetition and to make the pages more inviting. Maintenance: The Web site will be developed so that it is easy to maintain and update in the future. Development: The Web pages will be developed using a table based template (Appendix D) and will be fixed at 800 pixels wide X 600 pixels high. We will be using the following software to develop the site: Kompozer Web editing software, Xara Menu Maker and Adobe Photoshop. Hierarchy: We have decided on the following fonts, colors and sizes to organize the text: content: 1. Headings: Calibri, bold, size 28 point, teal (#018f7f) 2. Sub-headings: Calibri, bold, size 16 point, purple (#412182) 3. Paragraph text: Calibri, size 12 point, black (#000000) 4. Key Terms: Calibri, bold, size 12 point, teal (#018f7f) Layout: We have decided on the following colors to organize the content: 1. Background: light teal (#71bcb5) 2. Title Bar/Masthead Colors: teal (#018f7f) and purple (#412182) 3. Navigation: purple (#412182)
  • 9. 9 Limiting Factors: Time Constraints The group is on a course time constraint of 7 weeks. This time constraint will cause us to push this project along at a rapid rate. For that reason, constant communication must be open between the group’s PR representative and Loaves and Fishes (Buffalo). Delegating Tasks In order to increase productivity, we have elected a Team Leader that will be delegating the tasks to each team member. Loaves and Fishes (Buffalo) will be in sole communication with the PR representative will report back to the Team Leader. Media Materials: Podcast The group’s Research representative will develop a podcast concept on how people can volunteer. If used, it will be properly credited. Photographs The group’s PR representative and Team Leader will take a series of original, high-res photos that will be used on the Web site. If used, they will be properly credited. Graphics Appropriate graphics may be used to further enhance the Web site’s appeal. If used, they will be properly credited. Conclusion: In conclusion, we feel that this Web site will not only enhance the marketability of Loaves and Fishes Buffalo, but will also help to attract donations and potential volunteers. The support of Loaves and Fishes will greatly impact the needs of hungry people in the City of Buffalo. In addition, the site will provide information on hunger statistics and thus educate the Buffalo community on the issue of hunger. By providing information to the community via the Internet, the organization can better position itself to receive help through monetary donations as well as through service learning and volunteerism. Finally, the Loaves and Fishes Web site will provide a direct link to the immediate community and will also promote collaboration and communication among the organization’s supporters.
