How Chad Zenner started their web page design journey
Who are you known as?
Percival Scientific, Inc.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Percival Scientific engineers environmental growth chambers for the superior control of temperature, humidity and lighting for universities, colleges, government institutions and businesses both domestically and internationally. We have grown to represent a rich tradition of product ingenuity and reliability throughout the world. Our facility encompasses all engineering, design, fabrication, and construction of our biological incubators and other product lines, allowing Percival Scientific to maintain complete control of the manufacturing process.
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
Again, it has a minimalist design that focuses the users attention on the main content. For Percival, this would be our products.
We want to create a site that evokes technology, cutting edge scientific products, and makes the company look modern and sophisticated.
We are looking for a single page design for this site. We will modify the design to work for additional pages within the site. This contest is for a homepage only.
Home page: The homepage will include the following sections (please refer to the wireframe.pdf):
• Logo banner (this banner will include the Percival color logo on the left and imagery fading in to the right, similar to the current banner)
• Horizontal navigation
• 2 sections laid out horizontally (intro copy and a placeholder for a rotating image)
• 3 section laid out horizontally for promoting products or other information
• The footer section will include social media images/links and standard copyright information.
The site should utilize a modern, open frame layout. We’d like the background color of the page to be a very light gray, such as #F0F0F0.
Our target audience generally consists of well-educated scientists and researchers.
