Thank you for participating!
We do like our current website design, but have had it for some time and would like to evolve or progress from what we currently have at hazymoon.com with a fresh new look that includes a responsive design.
We will create a brand new WordPress theme from the winning design. (This is not going to be a child theme). We are open to exposing some wordpress features (featured posts, widgets) but don't want our site to look like a blog.
A darker background has been our signature, yet it also poses an issue of not being as readable. One idea has been to keep a darker background on the homepage and use a lighter (or white) background for interior pages, however we pose this question to you as the designer. Overall, the idea is to keep our current identity yet also have a readable clean site.
We are also including images that reflect who we are. Please feel free to use these in your design. (2 of the images are required - please see below)
Here are some additional notes:
1. We are willing to pay for a font if you think it is the best choice.
2. We do have 2 required images that need to be on the homepage.
-- the red seal. This is the file named: maezumi_seal.gif in the attachment. (required)
-- the White Plum Asanga seal. File named: white_plum__Gosan_No_Kiri.gif (required)
Please try to incorporate these 2 required images into the design. These are highly revered images as to what they represent.
-- (optional) Chinese lettering for zen "chan.gif" image.
3. We would like to have a footer. Please retain the information in our current footer, yet incorporate into your design.
4. Please display the styles for the elements / typography:
--HR (horizontal rule),
--UL (unordered list)
--OL (ordered list)
5. We are looking for a responsive design.
-- page 1: homepage (full desktop version 1140px - max width)
-- page 2: interior page (full desktop version 1140px)
-- page 3: homepage (tablet version)
-- page 4: interior page (mobile version)
-- page 5: homepage (mobile version)
We would like to further request a tablet version of the interior page once the contest is over.
6. We would like the design to be based on a max width of 1140px. This will be the maximum scalable size yet will also be a responsive design.
7. We do not need to use the same font for our name "Hazy Moon Zen Center" on the homepage, but if you DO choose to use the same font, it is: Onyx.
8. If you use any original artwork, or an image with a rasterized font, please include the non rasterized copy as well.
9. The title of our center is: Hazy Moon Zen Center Los Angeles
10. Please add: "Koun-Ji Temple" near the title of our center.
