The Connecticut Farm Bureau Association (CFBA) is a non-profit, grassroots membership organization dedicated to farming and the future of Connecticut agriculture.. Through membership if Farm Bureau, farm families and those committed to CT agriculture find a place to advocate and promote the interests of the farming community in Connecticut.
We are looking for a home page and an interior page (use http://cfba.org/html/members/join.php) mock-up, provided in Photoshop files. No coding required.
Male and female members of the agricultural society, including young farmers. Also, consumers interested in buying local food and promoting policies that support agriculture.
(files attached at bottom of brief)
Clean, simple look and feel. Colors should be “agricultural” in nature: tans, browns, greens. Site should be about 900-950 px wide, centered in the middle of the page. site will possibly incorporate some flash, but not too much. For layout purposes, use a static image.
There will be a Members only/password protected area. Do not put a login area on home page. Small login link at top of page.
The site/homepage will need a search box. There will be a calendar of events and embedded Youtube videos. Home page should show upcoming events and featured videos.
Horizontal navigation with dropdown menus
Sites that we like:
http://www.ofbf.org: one of the best Farm Bureau sites we’ve seen. The use of pictures and graphics, layout and easy navigation tools are all things we are looking for in our site. A bit too corporate looking. We want more images and a “softer” feel.
Good color choices, textured background, design, pictures and easy links to social networking. Use of a large header on home page is ok, but interior pages should have a smaller header.
http://www.ctplanningforagriculture.com Nice color scheme and interesting header.
http://www.stonebarnscenter.org has a clean, updated look. We especially like changing pictures across the banner.
