http://www.startupamericapartnership.org/ Not our graphical style but we really like the layout http://www.kstc.com Our main site. We like the graphical style at the top that shows what program you may be interested in and also that it shows a small icon for each program. SInce we could't fit the whole logo we just used parts of the logo to give a general idea http://www.cloudera.com/ We really like the layout and they way the graphical elements break up the text. The colors and shading work well and I like the size of the banner and it is a good example of using a smaller banner rather than taking up all of the horizontal space. We like that everything you need to know is on this one page and info about Cloudera is placed as large links in the logo header http://www.rackspace.com I like the bold design and it is a good example of using a banner than takes up the entire horizontal width. The banner area is large enough that you can fit a lot of descriptive text without been too cramped for space. Its a good example of letting the user find what they are looking for with well-designed elements and not having to read a lot of text to know where you want to go. Technically we want to do one thing...help companies succeed. But we just do it in different ways...kindof how they have hosting solutions, cloud hosting, managed hosting, email & apps...etc...
The homepage should convey the various funds under the Start-Up Kentucky umbrella preferable with a graphical banner for each fund that allows you to "read more". The banners would be part of a slideshow using a Joomla slideshow component such as RokTabs, Frontpage Slideshow or any other component. The banners can occupy the full width of the site or broken into individual parts. You can base the design on any Joomla YooTheme or RocketTheme if you wish as long as you are a licensed user as we are. The template we are leaning towards is RocketTheme's "Modulus" but we are flexible. The front page should make good use of the template's module positions and be easy to modify
We are trying to convey what we do through design rather than long passages of text. We want to engage a visitor to click on a graphic to discover more about the various funds. An events calendar, FB, Twitter, other social media, etc. should be integrated into the design as well. We will guarantee the contest upon the first promising submission
