Fundraising 2009/Website Design

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

For the 2009 Annual Fundraiser, WMF will be working with Fenton Communications and SeaChange Strategies for design and messaging elements. Both companies bring a wealth of real world experience to the fundraiser.

The two companies have been asked to help with the following:

  1. Complete re-design of all donation pages... this includes layout of the site elements, look, feel, and ease of use. This includes a re-designed toolbar and extra navigation links.
  2. Story and messaging elements supporting our broader public relations strategy. This includes the actual text for our site notices, landing pages, and donation pages.
  3. Design and copy for the WMF email campaign: assisting with cultivation and stewardship of current donors.
  4. General public relations and strategy work as needed.

Final round designs[edit]

From the talk page, the current designs were visible on the test donation site (for instance: Donate homepage, Notice7 banner), but these pages, and as a whole, no longer exist.

They differ from the second round designs below, largely based on feedback given here and offline.
