We're picturing a fixed-width (for 1024 sized screens) layout, with a header area at the top for logo, banner image, and horizontal menu. Two columns for Content + Sidebar under that, with a full-width footer at the bottom. That's just our initial idea - if you come up with something better, we're open to it.
We'll need something visually appealing, with a well-organised layout to display our information/content.
The sidebar will include our twitter feed showing the latest 2-3 tweets, and possibly a Facebook badge.
We'll include a testimonial, and a section for "Upcoming Dates". This will list the next 3-5 important dates for students/residents.
Example dates: 15 Feb - Orientation Week. 22 Feb - Classes start. 29 Mar - Mid-Sem Break. 14 Jun - Exams commence.
We may also want promotional banners/buttons to encourage "Apply Now" (people to apply to live here), or to promote an upcoming social event.
The content column should have the page heading, followed by text including bullet points, links, and floating images. You may consider including a promotional "Apply Now" banner. The footer should include some links and a copyright notice.
The menu will have a few top-level items, with dropdown options available. Your entry should show what an expanded dropdown looks like. See attachments for menu items.
Important: We'd like the design in a layered PSD format.
