Common Sense Revisited is a modern-day tribute to Thomas Paine's original, re-written for today's times and today's issues.
Common Sense Revisited explains why there is a groundswell of people beginning to return to our founding principles and how this return can help us solve the many problems that face our country. It is a pamphlet written to transform hearts and minds.
We are trying to create paradigm shift towards freedom in a time where our liberties are being lost everyday.
Our target audience is mainly libertarian/Ron Paul people. However, our pamphlet is enjoyed by anyone who wishes to enjoy the freedoms our U.S. Constitution protect.
It is meant to be an introductory to the concept of freedom and liberty.
We want a clear download button (fairly large) that makes it very clear that users can download the pamphlet for free. Above the download button, we want a description of what Common Sense Revisited is. It should say:
COMMON SENSE; Revisited (large text)The modern day tribute to Thomas Paine's original. (slightly smaller text)
The download button should look nice, attract attention and should have the CSR logo or front cover image of the pamphlet and say "free download" and "PDF format."
We want to have 3 attractive boxes positioned above the fold, below the download button, across the bottom of the page. The purpose of these 3 boxes is to act as portals to the 3 primary sections of our site. Put in placeholder text to show the text links.
We don't want the background to be white or plain.
Top nav with CSR logo as a link to home page. Can see current nav at original site. Also, a secondary top nav similar to Digg.com which has: Government, Power, Welfare, Environment, Education, Foreign Policy, Drugs. The purpose of this alternate nav is to let people browse all content by the issues by category.
On website somewhere, we want a place where we can put images or various promotions/products. The image should allow for the site to look spacious, but be large enough to fulfill the requirement of having a prominent promotion.
The resolution should be 1024x768.
