We are currently going through a website redesign and would like a few graphics designed for landing pages on our new website. We need three graphics total that display a few processes that landscape architects go through during the examination and licensure application process.
I have attached screen shots of our new homepage and the landing pages for which we need graphics. These are a work in progress (no content yet), but give you an idea of the look and feel of the new site. You will see gray boxes as placeholders where the graphics will go.
We are looking for clean, clear graphics that easily display the three processes without needing too much wording. Our audiences are very visual.
The graphics should be no wider than 1020 pixels; length can be variable. We would prefer, however, for all three graphics to be the same width and similar lengths if possible.
The colors for the new site include:
Navy Blue: #405177
Fonts for the new site include:
Titles: Trebuchet MS, #6e0253, 28px
Navigation: Trebuchet MS, 24px, 18px
Body copy: Verdana, #444444, 14px
The graphics needed are as follows:
1. The “Learn about Licensure” landing page graphic will provide an overview of the entire licensure process. Very high level and basic. It should include the following process order:
a. Complete your education
b. Start the exam: the exam is given on the computer
c. Gain experience
d. Apply for licensure
2. The “Take the Exam” landing page graphic will display the exam (called the L.A.R.E.) process. I have attached a basic graphic that shows the process. The headings below are the main process we’d like displayed, but I have provided more details that may help the design process.
In addition to the following, we would like a register button/graphic of some sort within the over all graphic. We realize it will not be interactive, but we will hyperlink the whole graphic to our registration webpage.
a. Check eligibility: future landscape architects (we call them exam candidates) will need to check the exam requirements for the jurisdiction they wish to be licensed.
b. Begin the registration process with CLARB: With this step, candidates will take one of two paths. This is the most confusing part of the process, which needs to be made as clear and easily understood as possible. Candidates will start a Council Record and either use it to immediate register for the exam or if their jurisdiction requires pre-approval, they can use their Council Record to apply to their jurisdiction to get approval to register for the exam. Once approved, the candidate comes back to CLARB and can continue forward in the exam process.
c. Register for the exam: Candidates will register for the exam with CLARB
d. Schedule an appointment: Candidates will schedule and take the exam at PearsonVUE testing centers.
e. Take the exam
f. Check scores
3. The “Apply for Licensure” graphic will show the steps needed to complete to apply for licensure. Attached is our basic graphic showing the process, but the steps are as follows:
a. Complete the exam
b. Check licensure requirements: Much like exam requirements, each jurisdiction has requirements that candidates must meet in order to become licensed.
c. Apply using Your Council Record: Candidates can use their Council Record to apply for licensure, as it contains the information licensure boards use to review candidates for licensure.
d. Contact Your Licensure Board to Finalize Application: Sometimes there are additional requirements of the licensure boards.
e. Update Your Council Record Once Licensed
