GiveWell is a nonprofit aimed at helping people accomplish as much good as possible with their donations. We find outstanding charities and publish the full details of our analysis to help donors decide where to give.
Our current website is at http://www.givewell.net. We want to create a new look that is clean, readable, and professional (and not flashy or "slick"). Our website is about cutting through the emotional manipulation of traditional fundraising, and getting people substantive facts and analysis so they can accomplish real, tangible good.
We run Drupal and are looking for a new theme for the existing content. The full prize is for designs of 2 pages. Mockups should include a new version of:
1. The homepage at http://www.givewell.net
2. One page that includes the primary elements we use in our website (left navigation menu, "charity response box" that we provide on our review pages, table of contents, etc.) Sample at http://www.givewell.net/node/7
Please start by just creating the homepage. During the contest, we’ll provide feedback, and if we like what you’ve done with the homepage, you can submit your design for the other page by the deadline. We don’t want you to do any unnecessary work.
