Project Description > Design
For design, they seek someone to ensure the new site looks great, works on mobile devices, and allows for a simple ordering process (which will be decided at a later date). They would also like to increase email newsletter list and have been more heavily involved in social media so that’s also important. Logo is very important to be featured prominently throughout marketing pieces so it will be important to include that color scheme.
Proposal due by February 13 to:
704 Broadway, Alexandria, MN 56308
