Birchstand is a website which brings together local non-profit organizations with nearby businesses in order to give individuals deals and discounts for donating to the non-profits.
THE HOME PAGE:
It needs to be clear and simple. If you give money to a nonprofit on the left, you can get a deal from a business on the right. It shouldn't get more complicated than that.
I'm pretty happy with my layout, but perhaps it can be more polished and professional?
Specifically, I'm concerned about the offers boxes ... the buttons ... proportion and placement ... all the little things that make a site look really great.
THE BUSINESS OFFER PAGE:
This is pretty important page. There's alot going on. Headline with offer. Image showing off the product. Benefit copy. A deal box. A letter. The Fine Print. More offers. It all needs to work!
The competition are these guys. We can certainly borrow from them, but we don't want to look like them.
I've attached my "sandbox." It's just a pdf of my ideas ... logos plunked into place ... photos ...
Not sure if it will help, but here it is.
