Check out StephenEMH's Web page design contest…
Accounting & Financial
Payne Capital Management is an investment advisory firm offering personalized wealth management programs for high-worth clients. We are based in New York, NY and Blue Bell, PA. The main purpose of the website is to inform clients about our services, our investment approach and philosophy, our "hip" team, and provide access to resources. Many financial sites are very conservative, perhaps a little "stuffy". My firm serves high-worth clients. I obviously want to present a professional image, but I also very much want to present us as a leading edge firm. Many of the example sites I have included in this brief have this type of feel. These statements will help to characterize and form an image of my firm in your mind - (PCM = Payne Capital Management). PCM MISSION: Building Personalized Strategies for Financial Peace of Mind. PCM CORE VALUES: Integrity, Competence, Family, Creativity, Teamwork, Health PCM VISION: To be the Preeminent Provider of Innovative Financial Solutions.
This contest is for a new 'Responsive' website for my wealth management firm. I have listed several sites that I like as part of this brief. Please review these sites and my comments as this reflects much of the style/theme ideas I like. The site should represent our core values: Integrity, Competence, Family, Creativity, Teamwork, Health Key design points for my site include: - Clean design with a little bit of an edge. My company is a financial services company so I need a professional look, but I also want a bit of an "edge" to the design. Most of the sites I include have this "edgy" feel. - Use of large "Hero" image on homepage and striking imagery throughout. - Clean and simple top level navigation - present on all pages. - I DO NOT want a single-page website. This is a trend today. It is used in many of the example sites which I have included in this design brief, however, I want each top level menu item to link to a separate individual page. - The site is relatively light on content. Deliberately so. This is a great opportunity for the text/typography be part of the design. Remember that this is a website and as such web fonts should be used. - I do not know if I want a light or dark site. These two sites are favorites, you will notice they have a darker palette: http://www.bienvillecapital.com/ http://pacelaw.com/ This site is another favorite, a lighter one this time: http://playgroundinc.com/ And a lighter one again: http://www.missionog.com/ And a very clean, lighter site - albeit a little too much of a technical site: http://www.boxclever.ca/about-us Regardless of the palette, each of the above sites have a clean, cohesive design. The typography is effective. They are edgy yet professional. These are design factors I value.
The top level navigation should be present on all pages. I like how clear this navigation is - http://thomas-vimare.com/. There should be navigation links for each of the following pages. 1. Homepage Large "Hero" image of the team / office. The photography is currently being worked on and will be provided once available. In the meantime please use the uploaded pcm1-5.jpg files. 2. Services Our current services are listed here - http://www.paynecm.com/services.php. I would like these services to be presented in a similar format to these sites: http://www.bienvillecapital.com/themes http://pacelaw.com/#focus 3. Team We have 7 or 8 people to list on the team page. I really like how these bios are presented: http://www.bienvillecapital.com/team/cullen-thompson A page that lists the team and links to each bio is required along with the bio pages themselves. 4a. Philosophy Three Pillars content listed on this page - http://www.paynecm.com/philosophy.php. This will need to be updated to reflect the new site design. 5. Resources Links to handful of articles (4 or 5). Links to weekly Radio Show audio recordings. Possibly links to Conference Call recordings if available in web format. 6. Contact Us Standard Contact Us page. The current page is - http://www.paynecm.com/contact.php. This will need to be updated to reflect the new site design. Possibly work a map next to our two locations like this site: http://icorinc.com/contact.php
What to avoid
- Single page design (parallax scrolling). I want each of the links to go a new page. - Complex site design. I want a clean simple site.
Have fun! I'm very excited to see a leading edge design that reflects my wealth management firm's entrepreneurial spirit.
