Company Background
In the United States, there are tax deferred saving accounts for saving money for college (called 529 accounts).  Generally, a parent starts the account and contributes money to the account periodically.  The money grows and earns interest tax free.  Additionally, grandparents and well meaning friends will sometimes donate money towards these college savings accounts. GiftOfCollege is a vehicle for enabling grandparents and well meaning friends to donate money directly into a child’s college savings account.  It also provides parents with the opportunity to promote their child’s education and save for college within the community of GiftOfCollege.com.

UPDATES TO DESIGN BRIEF FROM GIFT OF COLLEGE:

Demographic:
- 20 to 30 something women (68% of all women are either the primary financial decision maker or equal partner in the decision)
- Children in the household, under the age of 10
- Middle to upper income $50K+
- High school grad, with a college degree or at least some college

Behavior/Attitudinal:
- Have identified that they want their child to go to college (78% of all parents)
- Internet savvy and see it as a part of their everyday life for shopping, research, education, etc. Believe it is safe.
- Currently investing for retirement
- Influencers of family and friends, tend to lead in other areas of life
- Believe it is their responsibility to pay for the majority of their children’s college – willing to make sacrifices to do so

Colors:
- Neutrals
- Muted/soft color pallets greens/beige/gold/teals

Type of look:
- Approachable and safe
- Must have the feel of a "caregiver", warm/cuddly/caring – therefore as a "caregiver" must have a feel of warm but also serious/expert

Images that will be used on website not necessarily in logo:
- Family images, children (keep at 10 and under)
- Things that spark images of future (artistic, musical, education, etc) – kids in "dress – up"
- Hopeful couples
- Young families
- Potentially it may be interesting to be illustrative, rather than actual photos…so that the family’s can create their own "home pages" like igoogle, that fits their lifestyle/needs and personal tastes
