Attached are three mock-ups for the different sections (excuse the Seahawks photos, first ones on my desktop…) As I was going through, I couldn’t really envision a single that would accommodate the needs of all three. Feel free to tear it apart as needed. Board I’m okay with having a paragraph bio on this page in addition to their photos and links to their resume and a longer bio. There’s no more than 2 candidates for the position. Some other thoughts as I was putting this together: - I have “Resume” and “View Bio” but it might be easier if within EE it’s something closer to “Supporting Documents” and we can label what each is. Some provide CVs while others give resumes so we’d need the flexibility to indicate that. - One concern I had was with the name, title, institution section. Some people have long titles and/or long institution names so I don’t know if I have it laid out in the best way to address that. Regions & States - The issue with this page is that it could quickly grow very large. It’s laid out chronologically by Region and then nested within that would be the states that belong to their respective Regions (if applicable.) I removed the bios and was thinking that we could have them instead be a modal window. There will only ever be 2 candidates for Regional directors. I’m trying to confirm how many state level candidates there are but I haven’t heard back yet. The mock-up shows 4 but it could be just 2. Because the page could get long, we were thinking that it might be good to have a way to quickly jump down to a selected Region. Knowledge Communities This is the fun one. Terms last for 2 years but people move around a lot so there are typically quite a few elections happening. The other issue is that people can run as co-chairs so we’d want to clearly show that, as well as just a single candidate. That also means that it’ll need to be flexible enough to accommodate chair vs. chair, co-chair vs. co-chair, and chair vs. co-chair arrangements within the same election (and the need for two resumes, etc.) The rest would work pretty similar to what we’d have for the Regions and KCs. Hopefully the wireframes and additional information clears things up. I’ll be around all evening if you’d like me to highlight anything else that might come up.
