New Homepage Design

We have been talking about making our website at North Side more user friendly lately.  I decided to design a sketch on my anointed whiteboard and see what came up for a constantly updated homepage.  Here goes:

Here’s the concept:

  • Main Image – one image that is the ongoing series or big announcement – the image could be clicked and go to a video announcement
  • Top Buttons – no drop down boxes, these will all go to another page – must make simple
    • I’m New
    • Services
    • Blog (we will need to add this feature to the website)
    • About Us
  • Left Section
    • Adults – bucket ad (can we add a thing there that says, “For more info on adult activities…” and link to a page; same for the next two)
    • Students – bucket ad
    • Children – bucket ad
  • Below Section
    • Latest Message – automatically pulls last mp3 and sermon icon to front, link for more sermons here
    • Upcoming Calendar – automatically pulls next events, link to full calendar
    • Blog Updates – automatically pulls from North Side blog and North Side staff blogs
    • Give
  • Really Below Section
    • More visible “Signup” for updates
    • More visible “Search”
    • Simple icon links for:
      • Twitter
      • Facebook
      • YouTube
      • Flickr

What you think?  Would the homepage be a onestop shop for all your North Side needs?
