SimpleSite is a website builder that enables anyone with an internet connection to create their own website, whether they're on a desktop computer or a mobile device. Our target audience consists primarily of small business owners and entrepreneurs, who don't have experience creating websites and are generally not tech savvy. They choose SimpleSite because they need a website and want a simple tool for creating it themselves. Until now, new users have more or less started with a blank website on which they can add any type of content they want. We're now about to kick off a project that will change this.
The purpose of this project is to create a selection of 'templates', and let new users pick one of these as the starting point for their new website when signing up. Each website template will consist of certain pages (e.g. 'Home', 'Prices' and 'Contact'), and content (e.g. text sections, images, and a contact form). Additionally, each website template will come with certain pre-made design choices, such as font families and colour theme.
Your role in the project
For this project to be a success, we need a relatively large selection of high-quality templates, all optimised for both desktop and mobile devices. We have a list of 25 business types we want templates for (e.g. 'Italian restaurant', 'Hairdresser', and 'iPhone repair shop'), and the required web pages and content for each of them. Your first task will be to design one of these websites inside the SimpleSite editor, in the same way as a regular SimpleSite user would. We will then convert the website you create into a template and make it available for our users. Based on the result you will have the option to design more, or all, of the remaining templates.
The first template
We would like you to use the SimpleSite website builder to design a website for an Accountant. Just go to [login to view URL] and create a free account to get started. The brand identity, name, and other details about this fictional accountant are completely up to you. The website should (as a minimum) include the following:
Pages: Home, About, Services, Contact
Content: Name, Logo (doesn't have to be custom), Tagline, Services/Prices, Testimonials, About me, Contact information, and Contact form.
Additional details about your tasks
You need to design the website templates in a way so that they're not just beautiful to look at and easy to navigate for our users' visitors, they must also be easy to edit and customise for our users. This is to a large extent determined by the SimpleSite editor, but you also have a responsibility in the design choices you make.
Please post the URL for the website you create, along with the screenshots of your work. If you have any questions whatsoever, please don't hesitate to reach out to Christian (UX designer at SimpleSite) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
