The slideshow will have this layout for the app as pictured to the left, even though definitely not this aesthetics. It will be a slide show that automatically rotates through slides: Why bother with a clinical study?, how we can help you, Advanced search slide explanation and link, sign up for updates, About this site, laws we abide by, and submit a study.
There will be a similar style slide show for each study that will switch through automatically just like the home page. It will have why, what, who, where/when, how, and a sign up slide that will describe how to get involved. Why describes the purpose of the study and why we need to conduct a clinical research trial. What will depict what exactly will be done during the trial, be it a drug testing or a surgical procedure trial. Who will state who is qualified with specific age ranges, gender targeted, etc. Where/when is pretty straight forward what it will present. It will be where we tell them where the study is conducted and when the study is taking place along with description of the sponsoring company. The how page will be a link to an interactive timeline showing what will be happening along the course of this trial that you can click on specific items and it will give a full description. Finally, the last slide will have a sign up sheet with space to enter your contact information.
A Thing About Design
1. The first one is the most straight forward and basic one but here it is. Make sure all the information that must be included on the website is accounted for. This one's pretty obvious, but might as well state it anyway.
2. While all of the information still needs to be there, the website is as concise as possible. All the space available on the screen is used, but there isn't an overload of information in one place. When dealing with smartphones and tablets, it's a necessity because people need to be able to choose with their fingers. Also, try and keep the number of pages as small as possible without overloading them with info. Complexity should be kept to a minimum and too many pages to a website can get confusing to some.
3. Every page is organized in a clear manner so no one would easily get confused by how to use the website. Each button is clearly marked and appropriately placed. They say the number one thing that will determine a company's success is location. Make sure that everything is properly placed since ease of use will stand as an advantage against competition.
4. Keep the viewers entertained while on the website. This doesn't mean put on games on the website for them to use, but make sure the graphics and effects on the website are intriguing and pleasing while getting the same point across to a diverse audience. The aesthetics need to keep people interested in the website enough to get them through the pitch of committing to a clinical trial.
That covers the main points I want the website to have. I set them as goals and make sure that as I continue throughout the design process, I keep these goals in mind at every step.
