Faith or Fiction http://www.FaithorFiction.com
We are a new organization, FaithorFiction.com aimed at providing the ultimate resource for ALL individuals seeking to learn about the many different religions/beliefs in the world. We just received our initial investment round so we need a design that matches our high expectations of outreach with this company.
Our aim is a social community educational resource aimed at providing a middle ground (unbiased) view for all religions. We will have detailed comparison for all beliefs, education on ALL beliefs/religions and other educational tools we are custom building.
We will also provide a side by side comparison of each religion for visitors to be able to study and gain knowledge. All information will be from both points of view, allowing the user to input there own belief or opinions without influencing there decisions. The goal is to provide an overall study of each religion along with showing the difference between religious and scientific facts.
All individuals searching more knowledge in the area of ALL Religion, Spirituality, Beliefs & NON Beliefs
We are looking for a design that catches the readers eye yet is very simple.
Bring in detail/creativity in your designs. The overall page feel should feel professional, yet incorporate a lot of unique creativity!
We would like to utilize our puzzle pieces within the website, just please do NOT over use this concept.
Colors should be VERY EASY on the eye. NO DARK COLORS.
Your colors should flow well with our logo colors of blue/whites/grays...
Our website is VERY Plain at the moment since we are in the beginning stages of development. The following will be in our phase one roll out.
The design/layout/creativity needs to plan for future expansion and added content and information on the homepage as we grow.
Rotating image near the top of the page.
-The header buttons are: Research, Community, Blogs, Company. These buttons should allow for a sub menu below it to expand on these headers.
-Sign up for our newsletter.
-Follow us on twitter/Like us on Facebook. Be creative with incorporating these as it should flow well into the design.
-Featured Articles - Allow for at least 4 of these, show an image of the article, title & a small description. Shouldn't overtake design
-Featured Blogs - Allow for at least 4 of these, show an image of the article, title & a small description. Shouldn't overtake design
-Recent Activity Feed - This should be included in the website, but not in a dominant area. This would display the social users activity across the website.
-Possibly a Who we are section on the homepage, something that could start explaining our goals to the readers and allow them to direct to the about us page for more details.
-Quick compare religions/beliefs on the homepage using a drop down box to compare up to 3-4 religions.
-Creatively place 2 AD boxes somewhere within the design.
This site was just recently constructed, so the layout of items should NOT be considered. We are looking for creativity here! We are in the beginning stages.
