Bank with about 45 branches needs landing page for intranet. This is the page that will be auto-launched when users first login on desktops at corporate and in the branches. It will be for internal eyes only.
Single page layout. There should be a main content area in the body - possible two-thirds of available real estate, with one-third showing 2 or 3 subordinate content items. Fixed items will be link to main intranet & other corporate sites, weather feed & stock feed. Variable content that will populate the body slots will be, New branches, Mergers & Acquisition News, New Faces, Anniversaries,
Allegiance updates (customer satisfaction survey results), Guerilla marketing stories, Customer services stories, Sales success stories, Key press releases, Let's Grow campaign (March 1 - June 30), Business of the Week feature, Special product offerings, Local Market Event Updates, Possibly TV ads if we do them, Sales tips.
Menus (fixed links) would (could) be:
* Corporate Bank Site
* Brokerage Site
* Marine Finance Site
Look & feel note from client:
"What we discussed was a layout that would look like a news bulletin or newspaper. Simple to read. It would be conservative design (we talked about using the colors from the FNB Brokerage site) that are soft an neutral. We are talking about only one page right now (baby steps) with a link to our existing Intranet site for now."
Here's a link to hopefully a decent version of their logo:
Here's a link to a map of the branch locations. Most are on the east central coast of Florida. The corp HQ is in Stuart, FL (34994).
Client likes the colors used on http://www.fnbbrokerage.net/. Keep in mind this is a fairly conservative bank, that serves a client base generally in their mid-40s and up. Seems that most desktops have MSIE 6 as a standard browser, with lower resolutions. Consider 800x600 as target res.
Request design as PSD file, and JPEG. Style guide (JPG or PDF with notes about styles to guide our HTML execution) would be fantastic as well.
This is an intranet page - so please do not give up too much space for what would otherwise be appropriate for pages trying to market to prospects.
