Request for OPEN Quotations (RFO-Q)
For Website Redesign

The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is seeking competitive quotations for a web design project hereafter described. Contractors qualified to fulfill these requirements are invited to submit quotations subject to OWASP approval and email rory.mccune@owasp.org.

Background

The OWASP Brochureware project is an initiative to produce a set of "marketing" pages to allow for key OWASP material to be laid out in a user-friendly and enable our customers to get this information easily. Whilst the wiki has proven to be a great resource for collaborative development, the complex structure of the site can leave new users confused about where to go to get the information they are interested in. The goal of the project is to have a series of templates which can be used by areas of OWASP, to create their own marketing pages which can be added in to this site.

Desired Deliverables

In terms of the desired look and feel, the intention is to create a modern clean look for the pages, whilst including the relevant information for users of the site to find key resources quickly

Wireframes for the front page and a sample secondary page have been created, along with a potential page structure. These are intended to provide rough ideas of how the site layout could work, not necessarily as absolute constraints.

The intention is that once templates have been supplied, content will be provided by the appropriate OWASP contributors.

In terms of the design, the final goal is to have HTML markup templates along with the relevant CSS and Javascript files. Additionally some image files are needed for specific areas of the site.

Initially the idea would be to get imaged based mockups back for approval and then once these are agreed, the full templates would be created.

The intention is that specific areas of the template will be marked out with sample text which will then allow OWASP to fill in with the relevant content.

A couple of different page templates are needed

  • Home page template.
  • Standard Sub-Page.
  • Chapter page.
  • Project page.

In terms of the image files mentioned there are three “communities” of users who will be using the site, which have been called “builders”, “breakers” and “defenders”. For each of these communities we would like to have an image or icon which would be used in links relating to that community (for example on the home page the intention is that each of these communities would have a section in the middle of the page with their image and some descriptive text).

We’re open to ideas for these images, but they should form a consistent theme in terms of content and colors used. In terms of shape/size they should also fit in with the existing OWASP logo.


One idea would be to theme them along the lines of

  • Builder Color - Grey Image - Castle-based (eg, castle, portcullis etc)
  • Breaker - Color - Red Image - Sword or weapon based
  • Defender Color - Blue Image - Shield based


As mentioned, we’re open to exploring other themes for these images.
