So I tried a few more fonts with the concept I posted on Thursday. Diane thought the script font was a little hard to read. This was one of the fonts I did like so I tried to make the yellow part of the text thinner so it was a little more legible. I also tried some block letters similar to the font I was using in my first round of ideas. The bottom font I really liked, the bottom logo is my favorite of the ones I developed this week. My mentor liked both of these ideas as well. I would like to send that concept to the board members after I hear back from Diane.
I have also been researching some sports websites to get ideas from for the UMFOD’s website. I have come up with a few very similar designs. The main difference is the content boxes. My favorite is the first idea (top left and if you can’t really see the background is a black texture and then the content is within black boxes) but I have a feeling the board members might think its too dark, which is why I changed it to white in the 2nd idea and lost the black in the last idea all together. The content on the pages below (all home pages) are just fillers. I plan to have the donation button on all pages in the right side bar. On all the other pages the button will be a little further down allowing room for links at the top of the side bar.
Just wanted to post something really quick to get some feedback on the concepts I have developed. I would love suggestions!
