Should be set up like a regular invitation, and feature the Ryan site color scheme

Invitational Site Proposal

  • Configure a rough meeting schedule

  • Met March 17th at 5 pm

balsamiq mockups
A simplistic format, following the old Ryan color scheme was our design philosophy

Had to be user friendly

Had to look like an invitation

Had to have a picture of a truck

Had to link back to homepage

Balsamiq Mockups

  • Overall, went very well
