You are in a coffee shop, laptop open, earbuds in, and coffee half done, reading this Design Brief between minor adjustments to another client's design project.
You are a Cofficer, and this contest is to recreate the The Coffice community experience online.
Here's the official stuff:
The Coffice is a business "workstyle" brand bringing together professionals who conduct their business affairs from local coffee shops on a full- part-time or casual basis.
The current website uses Wordpress, with the installed Thesis child theme for additional development. I would like to redesign the current site as a social network; a community-based online destination where "Cofficers" can interact, learn, network, shop, etc., where global Coffice locations (the coffee shops) can be found, and much, much more.
This community can be designed over the Buddypress framework or another similar CMS where you feel The Coffice design will feel best.
***I think it's great that most submissions are recreations of the current Coffice site; however, I would like to upgrade that functionality AND the design to include a community, as well as other areas. If it helps any more, please check out the following link for a list of community-based sites along the lines of the vision I have for TheCoffice.biz:
Also, I will endeavour to provide as much feedback as possible, but it also helps if designers do the same to help flesh out concepts/visions.
Key word = community
