Thanks for ping on this Jody,
Just a quick note regarding the branding.. yes, still open. I have some
emails from designer that I have to deal with as well. Part of that is
a guideline doc and overview. I'm behind on this for sure.
After wrapping up the marketing materials I'd like to turn our sites to
the other design ideas, etc. - in particular the website ideas that have
been kicked around for a while in a few places and ways. As part of
that I hope we'll have more discussion and comparison of mock-ups,
samples, ideas, etc. We had a great meeting a few months back
(January??) on some of this.
Daniele did you get much feedback on your questions back then? Jody, do
you have any specific questions you'd like feedback on? I did like your
current layout :) But I'm sure the "new" one will be great too.
Though I see what you were trying to accomplish, maybe we're putting
cart before horse - talking about overall project site branding when our
own 'main' one isn't solidified?
Anyway, this is quick braindump before bed - hope I can follow up
further in the morning.
