Hope to hear from everyone to answer Avtar’s questions
So far, focused on:
Resources front and centre
Mobile version of existing site
Currently the title takes up the full screen
Participation options/call to action should be presented sooner - on landing page
Especially since most students in Fresno have mobile phones but not desktop computers or laptops
3 lines and call to action (CTA)
A way for people to sign up/get involved easily
About page: would be good to come up with a concise way of expressing the project goals
Key text - welcoming environment for youth with learning differences - summarise in 1 or 2 lines, then a “get involved” button
Put the longer text separately in an About page, separate from the landing page
Moving on from landing page - access to resources
There is a lot there
Could we pick a handful of resources to prioritize on the landing page?
Presented like cards here, each with a CTA
With Link to more resources
How to choose these? Could they rotate randomly? Could it be more of a “reveal more” rather than a separate resource page?
Could choose one resource related to each partner/resources the partners are currently using? This could tie into Activity page.
Want the site to highlight partner’s work
Want it to be a place where the partners and youth can share resources, ideas
Organise by theme?
Landing page of Scratch - shows projects that people are doing with the tool
We could do something similar - centred around how people are using the tools/the site/the resources
Share the results - not centred on the resources directly
How does each individual CTA relate to the resource?
What does resource page look like? Not sure yet
Use “SJRK” as branding instead of full title?
works in other languages/cultures, since letters are understood but the full name is not necessarily
Allows for more screen real estate
Like the 3rd one - keep important info high up on the screen
Tiled version? (SJ/RK)
Better to have most real estate as possible - so one line SJRK might be best
2nd one in 2nd line could be possible
In Cartagena the youth movements identify with the initials, and it’s better to handle the space in the interface
Also like the 2nd one in the 2nd line (box with SJ/RK)
Could be fun to play around with the letters in the box as a logo/brand/favicon
If everyone is on board with the visuals Avtar can create more polished mockups
Next section on mockup to reveal summary text of SJRK project
As long as there is a bit of intro at the top
Wide screen version -
Could we have both SJRK initials as a logo and also show the full title
What about the individual versions of site for different partners / different projects?
SJRK logo could be more of a placeholder (for other logos etc)
e.g . at Karisma - chose different colours for different issues/contexts e.g. education is blue, security is red
E.g. the CAT! - could represent Karisma
Use colours for theming of the site
Idea of people doing something together, playing off repair idea - maintaining, caring
Quilting, patching, sewing
Different elements brought together

Mola - something hidden that is needed to maintain the structure - like technology :)
