National Contract Management Association
We built NCMA Huntsville’s website on WordPress 4.5.4, using WooCommerce 2.6.4 and the mobile-responsive Slider Revolution 5.2.5. We wanted to lend a more dynamic look to the home page to offset the industry’s serious businesslike persona. This was achieved by adopting a magazine-type grid layout, using several image blocks of varying sizes and proportions. Some of these sections also feature animated image sliders and video, to add motion to the visual elements. As a result, the page is more engaging to explore, especially since the rest of the site contains plenty of text-only content.
Going against design-industry convention, we softened up the look a little further by using a powder blue-on-white color scheme, with royal blue accents. And to cap off the entire page’s look, we included a thumbnail of a fluffy teddy bear near the online store link at the footer. This way, it creates a more accommodating atmosphere in the website, especially since the organization actively welcomes both employment seekers and recruiters.
This website is designed to draw more awareness to the organization’s mission and activities, which is why its events are depicted first in the home page. Secondary to that objective is generating more sponsors and leads, both of which are promoted at the lower half of the page.
AS for the rest of the site, we did away with superfluous visual elements and featured the rest of the content on a more minimalist white background.
