This design is largely based on the previous Girls in Engineering website design. It features a carousel with space for three images, a main dock for a video to be embedded.
I've improved the design in a couple of ways:
This is a slight variation on the first design. It occurred to me that because the program hasn't happened yet, there's not an awful lot to say about it.
In this design, there aren't any image/quote units at the bottom, and I think the design looks much cleaner overall because of it.
There are a few options for including sponsors in this design. They could go on the carousel itself, at the bottom, or on a separate page.
This website is a completely different design from the other two. I started essentially from scratch on this one, and you will see that it is much simpler - there is no carousel, and no images at the bottom (although they could easily be added!).
I think this site turned out to be the most aesthetically pleasing of the three, and its simplicity would be well-suited to the new-ness of the program.
