Being Denver-based, we were thrilled to design a site for ex-Bronco (and Tampa Bay Buccaneer) safety John Lynch. His foundation, which he runs with his wife Linda, is dedicated to rewarding and honoring young people who excel in academics, athletics, and community involvement.
A big requirement in this design was to show large high resolution images of John, Lynda, Keynote speakers and the winners of the awards as well as create a fully responsive website that is easy to use and navigate on any device. Another goal was to call to attention the various programs and history of the organization as well as videos of the award winners. To accomplish this we created a sectioned homepage layout that showcases each topic as you scroll the page.
From a design standpoint we utilized existing branding and colors in conjunction with light shades of transition, clean typography, and use of generous whitespace. The homepage features a large full screen responsive slide show with each slide representing a call-to-action for featured programs within the website. The site was developed using Microsoft's Orchard CMS blogging platform and the site supports multiple blogs showcasing the athletes as well as news and events.
