MaxAsciutto got their new web page design by running a design contest:
OSAM - A high-tech asset management firm is looking for your innovative designs!
Check out MaxAsciutto's Web page design contest…
Accounting & Financial
OSAM is an innovative and well-known asset management firm. The company is very excited to see the bold & innovative designs you can create! The firm's investment strategies are quantitative, meaning that instead of buying and selling stocks with emotion, OSAM's uses big data and high-tech research to create their client portfolios. They would like their new website to reflect their modern and high-tech approach to investing. The target audiences for OSAM.com are individual investors, institutional investors, and high-net worth clients.
OSAM is looking to create a website that is minimalist, bold, modern, and fresh. The design should look more like a website for a marketing or technology company than a traditional financial firm. The firm has provided a number of competitor websites to help you get a sense of the design aesthetic they'd like to achieve. Please use those websites as inspirations for your design without directly copying them; we'd love to see your original ideas mixed in.
Pg. 1) OSAM homepage - replacing http://osam.com An outline of the content for the homepage is below. Each numbered item is it's own subsection of the page. 1. Welcome message: a.

If you’d like to join us, follow along here[sign up]. 2. Our Firm (similar to the information ribbon at us.dimensional.com), shouldn’t take up too much room: “OSAM at a glance” a.

Achieved through high active share, low active cost, and steadfast long-term discipline d. 32 people with an average team tenure of x years based in Stamford CT. 3. Investing Philosophy>leads to subpage. a. We are quantitative investors who believe in alpha over assets [link to that post]. Through deep empirical research, we identify factors that have generated alpha. We then concentrate our portfolios into stocks with the highest expected risk-adjusted return. Factor investing works best at the edges. Learn More> 4. Investment Strategies: Only a small handful of factors predict alpha. Using customized factor definitions, we begin by avoiding the absolute poorest quality businesses, earnings, and balance sheets. We then buy companies with outstanding shareholder yields, valuations, and price momentum. Our portfolios tend to have lower than average capacity, low excess return correlation, and very low overlap with market indexes. Learn more about OSAM’s stock selection model. Learn more> 5. Research (BLOG): OSAM is committed to conducting the best new research on markets and sharing our finding with investors. We want to manage money on behalf of committed, long-term investors, which means sharing what we learn. To follow our journey, you can read, listen and watch> a.

Pg. 4) Blog / Commentary Homepage - Clean, innovative and forward-thinking look & feel. Include summary of 8-10 recent posts. Pg. 5) Team Page - replacing - http://osam.com/about_leadership.aspx. We are going to get new photos taken for the website, so feel free to use stock photos for headshots. The team really likes the following site as a sample of what they're going for, please try to use it as inspiration without directly copying it - http://firstround.com/team/. The takeaways are large photos which when clicked display the team bios.
What to avoid
NO stock photos of people. Abstract technology or financial images; or other concepts are welcome. Photos of money, piggy banks, etc are also too gimmicky.
The OSAM team can't wait to see what you come up with! They want you to push your creativity to the max and design a site that is fun, innovative, BOLD, exciting, and stands out from the crowd.
