The current website ( http://www.papillonbistro.com ) is outdated and needs a new, more modern look that matches our newly designed logo (see attachments).
The new Papillon website should reflect and enhance the style of the new logo and follow the same color scheme.
The bistro is named in honor of the famous French man Henri Charriere (nicknamed Papillon for his butterfly tattoo). Henri escaped from multiple jails and later became famous for his best-selling memoir.
To learn more about the fascinating life of Papillon go to…
Words to describe Papillon Bistro would be...
Sophisticated. French. Masculine. Bistro. Bar. Classy, not trendy. Slightly mysterious (like Papillon the man). Seductive. Confident.
What we are NOT: Fancy, Feminine or Haut-Cuisine.
Papillon has a large and loyal following of high income NYC professionals - mostly bankers and finance professionals. They are confident, successful, conservative customers.
During the day the bistro attracts tourists from mid-town Manhattan, but at happy hour/night, the crowd is mostly professionals grabbing a drink or dinner after work.
Develop a WordPress theme that reflects the style and color scheme of our new logo (see attached files).
The basic template should follow the guidelines shown in the attachment "papillon1.png".
The basic template will be used to develop 7 pages: Home, Menu, Photos, Papillion (history of the man), Private Parties, Blog and Contact Us.
The Menu page and Papillon pages should be similar in function to the Menu and Lillie Lantry pages of the restaurant website http://www.lilliesnyc.com, which is a sister restaurant to Papillon.
The "Private Parties" page should reflect the guidelines shown in papillon2.png.
The guidelines are shown to help direct you, however, talented designers should feel free to explore alternate layouts as long as they will be compatible with WordPress and contain the same functions (e.g. Twitter feed, Google Maps, etc.)
Winner must provide layered PSD or PNG files in RGB mode. Width should not exceed 1000 pixels.
