Abroad101 is a web start-up company targeting students who study abroad, their parents, the universities from which they travel, and the companies that run the programs they attend to foster a safer, well-researched, and more meaningful experience abroad.
Our content will be largely user-generated. We will include standard â€œWeb 2.0â€ social networking functionality, such as profiles, messaging, and sharing information.
We want our website to feel very â€œWeb 2.0â€, as described on the page http://www.webdesignfromscratch.com…-guide.cfm. We like minimalism, cleanliness, white space, and simplicity. Our website should be easy-to-use and easily navigable. We hope our users will use our search box as the primary vehicle for navigating and finding content on our website.
We do not think of ourselves as creative experts. While we are hoping to find a design that well represents our personal vision and expectations, we hope our creative designer will take the appropriate creative license in helping us determine how our website should look.
We also have some flexibility with our logo, if you want to take a stab at modifying it.
