Create beautiful website for nonprofit arbitration organization!
Check out sweissmann's Web page design contest…
Community & Non-Profit
We are a rabbinical court that serves the North American Jewish community by (i) mediating and arbitrating disputes, (ii) administering Jewish divorces, and (iii) issuing Jewish legal decisions regarding personal status (e.g. whether a person is Jewish).
Traditional, conservative, sophisticated and professional. But also very consumer oriented and welcoming and friendly. It should portray seriousness, like the website of a high level law firm. But the website is targeted to individual users, so it should be easy to navigate and promote our services in a way that people will want to access them. We think our current website has pretty good colors (although we are not wedded to them exclusively) and does a good job at demonstrating the seriousness of the organization, but isn’t so user-friendly, consumer-oriented and navigable. Our current dark and conservative colors have worked well for us, although we are open to experimentation. In particular, the website should have an airy, open feel to it and not be too crowded and dark.
The homepage should feature our logo prominently at the top (middle or side?), and make clear who we are. In addition to drop down menus for the full range of the site, we would like users to be able to easily navigate, through prominent links/clickable areas/icons to: Action items for our main services: (i) Open a din torah (arbitration) case, (ii) Contact us about opening a Get (Jewish divorce) case, (iii) Open a Jewish status determination case and (iv) Online Continuing Legal Education Seminars (this is a new service and isn’t yet on our current website; the CLE seminars stand apart from our basic services, so this might deserve its own space on the homepage). And also to the following forms and information pages: (i) Beth Din of America Prenuptial Agreement (this will link to www.theprenup.org), (ii) Journal of the Beth Din of America, (iii) Reported Decisions of the Beth Din of America and (iv) Halachic (Jewish law) forms. In addition, basic information should be viewable from the homepage, perhaps on the bottom banner, such as (i) our contact information, (ii) biographical information about the staff or a link to biographical info page, (iii) sign up field for e-mail updates and (iv) that we are affiliated with the Rabbinical Council of America and supported by the Orthodox Union (with their respective logos). Finally, somewhere somewhat discreetly on the page there should be a “make a payment” button that will link to a page where customers can make a payment.
What to avoid
Try to avoid very overt Jewish symbols like Jewish stars, etc., since we think this will detract from the sophisticated look of the page.
Please be creative in your design! We’d love to stand out as a very traditional organization with a particularly attractive website. Our new website needs to be responsive. While we have generally been pleased with our current website, it is almost 7 years old and we want a fresh, completely updated design that is fully responsive, and with more intuitive navigation and links. The new website with have new features on it (such as the online continuing legal education lectures) and increased functionality (such as opening a case online and making online payments). Aside from the logos we attached, we attached some photos that may or may not be useful in incorporating in a design. The photos of the scribe writing are photos of a Get, a Jewish bill of divorce, which is one of the things we do.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their web page design.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
sweissmann collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
